Q: Would you allow your child to take a cell phone to school?


Never. It's completely inappropriate.


I'll let the school dictate the decision.


Yes, on the condition that my child is responsible about turning it off during class time.


When my child reaches a certain age, I would allow it.


Definitely. I like knowing that I can reach my child whenever I need to.
