When To Get A Child An I-Phone

Our Daily Dilemma today deals with what age is the appropriate age for a child to get an I-Phone.  My son is 12 and he wanted one really bad.  I always used the line ‘it’s good to want.’  He did not like that very much.  I finally caved. But, not because he was nagging.  It’s was because the texting function on his old phone was horrendous.  But, also, it was that all of his friends had one.  Every single one of them.  So, yes, I buckled under peer pressure.  His peers…weird. Now, I’m keeping up with the Jones.  He is responsible with it and I said anytime I want to look at it I am.  I just wonder if I’ve done the right thing.
