Mobiles are no longer a luxury. It has become a necessity that even a 3rd grade kid can feel! We were entering the digital age slowly, but the two years of lock-down catapulted us into it with such force that now every single thing is at the tip of your fingers. And those fingers are often tapping on a mobile screen! This makes us raise the question…

What Age Is Right For Kids To Start Using A Phone?

If it were 2018, we would’ve answered this question with ease, but after the sudden time travel to 2022- it’s so much more complex! With education going online, kids even in 4th or 5th grade need a phone now. But what if they get addicted to it and use it for everything other than studies? Well, the previous years of online studies have made us aware of the many dangers lurking in the vast internet. Parental controls are now enabled for all major social platforms too!

We asked this as our #KSPQuestionOfTheWeek and wanted to know from you- what do you think is the right time for kids to use mobiles.

Here are some of the comments we got:

Makes sense. When we are in college, we are very well aware of terms like hacking or cyber-crime and cyber-bullying, etc and know how to protect ourselves.

This is a good solution too. To give them a phone without internet, solely for the purpose of contacting people and staying connected.
