She is always asking me to get her one. What do I do ?

Nope. Not unless she needs one. My son got one when he was 12 because that's when he started high school, and had to travel further each day. But he got JUST a phone, not a smart phone. With what I see in the classrooms at school, I would not allow a child this age to have a smart phone in a million years.

Nope.

My daughter will get a phone when she starts driving and needs one or when she has a job and can afford to contribute towards its upkeep and the cost of texts and calls. In my opinion, ten years old is too young.
