We knew we needed to have a discussion with our kids about when the right time would be to get a cell phone or personal device.

After some research, we were inspired to create a list of behaviors that demonstrated emotional maturity and responsibility. As we brainstormed together, the kids helped us come up with a great list of ideas! (Tyler and I threw in our two cents as well.)

The result? A list of 12 questions for teens to ask themselves when they feel they are ready for a personal device or a cell phone.
