Be smart. Only give your kids basic mobile phones until they are old enough to act responsibly. A primary school boy I know was given a prepaid one for emergencies only. It is programmed to work for only for a few numbers that are programmed into it. At school they have to hand them in and collect them from the office at the end of the day. (They are signed in and out like you do for a child in childcare). Handy if the parents are running late to pick them up from school too.
