As soon as your kid reach middle school.The very first thing they want from you is a smart phone.You offer them a normal phone, they will be bullied.So is internet growing our kids? Have you ever imagined how much time we lose every day doing useless surfing on internet,but again have not been internet.We would not have known so many good things. In today's life we hardly can imagine even an hour without internet. It has become a part of life.So question is should we give our kids that smart phone.Internet is good.But for kids internet use must always be supervised.So rather don't give smart phone.Or give one with parental control. Anyways internet is of great use for our daily requirements, be it travelling,shopping, education,work. But internet usage specially for kids should be time restricted and supervised, until they gain the maturity to understand good and bad.
