What age is too young for an iPad?
I got an interesting email from a Gazette reader the other day. He said he recently attended a birthday party for a 10-year-old child, who received an iPhone to mark the special occasion.
The reader wondered if age 10 is an appropriate age for giving a child such an electronic gadget. Is a child at age 10 old enough to be responsible for it? My reader wondered, as well, if the parents didn’t unwittingly put that child at risk should someone try to steal the device.
As regular readers of this blog know, I don’t have an iPhone. Heck, I didn’t get a simple cellphone, a Tracphone, until last year, after I turned 54! (I’m not sure how I’m surviving without better technology, but so far, so good.)
