We've been cornering all of the parents we know and doing a little random survey recently.
The question: Does your child have a cell phone? Who pays for it?
A lot of parents say yes to the first question, and the second answer seems to fall into one of the following three categories:
1/ I pay the bill. The whole thing. It's not pretty.
2/ I pay a set amount (say $40/month) and anything my kid spends above this amount, he/she pays the difference.
3/ I pay nothing. My child pays for the entire thing.
One brave parent agreed to tell us what happened when he called the phone company to ask about his teenagers' cell phone bills.
We're talking about kids and cell phones on next week's Spark, and we're opening up our little survey to you.
Does your child or teen have a cell phone? Why? If you pay for it, do you think your child takes that into account when they text, talk and browse?
Or maybe you don't have any children. Never fear! We want to hear from you too. What do you think about kids and cell phones?
