After much begging, lobbying, squabbling and whining from my daughter, also because she took public transportation home from school, from a safety standpoint, I finally yield and gave her an iPhone at her age of 12. The deed is done but I am having doubt. I reckon her tech savvy far outpace her ability to use the iPhone wisely, and I mind to do something about the gap.
Nowadays when you hand kids phones, especially state of the art smartphone like an iPhone, you’re also giving them powerful communication and production tools, they can create text messages, photos and videos of themselves that can be uploaded to the web and distributed widely. They can just download about anything in the world. They can broadcast or expose their status and vulnerabilities to anyone who hold a genuine or malicious interest.
Parents should realize that perfect safety and privacy don’t always go hand in hand. Sometimes, things have to be done.
