Kids grow up too fast these days. I don't think a child in first grade should have a cell phone. My niece's daughter is 9 years old. For her birthday in Sept, she was able to get an email address. Of course, it's monitored by her parents. I'm not sure how that works, but I think it means that any email can't be opened unless approved by one of her parents. It's so sad. Kids don't get the chance to be kids these days. They're on the computer, or playing video games much more than playing outside. When I was a kid, I was ourtside all the time. There was plenty to do, and I don't rememvber complaining about not having anything to do!
