I can’t tell you how many of my friends kids, that are 9-year old or have iPod Touches, and even cell phones.

While I can see circumstances why some younger kids might need a cell phone, depending on their living situation, and if the mom is a single mom, or dad.

I think a cell phone is not a toy, so I think a child needs to show responsibility, and not for just texing their friends back and forth about things they can talk about at school.

Do you think an 9-year old should have a cell phone?
