Parents pledge to wait until 8th grade to give kids a cell phone!

Ok, this one I'm curious about! There's a new trend in parents pledging NOT to give their kids a cell phone until they are in the 8th grade! I actually kind of agree with this! I think too many parents use cell phones/tablets as a babysitter for their kids, which is ridiculous! Kids need to play, interact with people, and actually LEARN to sit and be quiet, not bury their faces in a screen!

This really does annoy me when kids are on phones/tablets all the time. Like, I get it, every once a while is good, and we do that with our son at home...but spending HOURS looking at screen for any kid is NOT COOL.

Your thoughts??
