Parker is 8, and we've been thinking about it. But, it would just be one that he could ONLY call out on, or receive calls. No internet or anything. He is always walking around the block to his friend's house, and they walk down to the park to play (it's about 4 houses down from his friend's house), and they also ride bikes at the parking lot up from his friends house. (an abandoned one, no traffic) I think that it would be nice for him to have a phone on him during those times, and if I need to get a hold of him, I can. It's more for safety than anything.

IMO it depends on their maturity and need for one. David got his at 13. We did not feel he was mature enough before that and he really wasn't social outside of school
Hailey got hers at age 10. She is mature for her age and very social. She was using my phone in the evenings and weekends to text her friends and it started to get annoying when I wanted to use my phone and when friends would text or call for her when I was still at work
