This may be of interest to parents out there.
My daughter lost her cell phone whilst out of town on a school related event. She located it via gps. And, the nice people at the restuarant in which she left it have mailed it back to us.
What surprised me was the reason she did not want to borrow my phone. Most all kids these days text non-stop. My daugher is no exception. Because I felt she "needed" a cell more than I, I offered to let her borrow mine in the interim. She declined the offer. I actually thought it was b/c my phone isn't nearly as fancy as her own....but, no! She said it was b/c all her friends knew she has lost her phone, if she used mine - she would feel obligated to text them back immediately (as opposed to via computer)!
All this time I believed all kids were happy, happy, happy w all of this applied "tech" they are expected to utilize. I will have to re-evaluate.
