    yeah but these days parents are working longer hours.. sometimes it's the only link to having any sort of relationship with their kids. cell phones do distract people while driving and doing random activities. they also have cell phones where only the parent can program certain numbers in the phone.

I understand the cell is not superman...but ya know I heard a story of a women kidnapped and car jacked and she pushed 911 on her phone hidden, and let the dispatchers hear her screaming for him to let her out, ( without him knowing ) and the police got him.
    Well, if that's the case, I do know they make specific phones (usually for children) with 5 or so programmed numbers. No other numbers can be dialed, and that's enough for 911, your parents, and any other people children may need in a case of an emergency.

    I don't think Mrs. Lyfing's situation is very likely... what parent would let their young girl walk around on her own without educating her on the dangers of strangers...

    I don't really like mobiles or phones in general. When I'm in Toronto I only have a mobile because I don't use it a lot and see no need to have a landline I won't use.

    Children and mobiles? Not until they're 16-17 at least, in my opinion. To need it before then is silly and if the parent is so concerned about their child's welfare that the child needs a mobile to contact them, they should just lend the child their mobile.
