No cell phone for my daughter … yet

My wife and I may be luddites, or worse, horrible parents, yet …

Keenly aware of unrelenting peer pressure, societal influences and exponentially increasing youth depression rates, we committed to extending our daughter’s innocence by delaying her access to a cell phone. My daughter and three older siblings don’t agree, as a few hundred eye rolls, foot stomping and protests prove. My wife is stronger than me, but hopefully we are raising more connected, better humans.

Aren’t phones supposed to connect us? Instead, they have my family sitting next to each other – yet seemingly miles apart. Agree? Please encourage us.
