Hello all, I am new to this board. I read over the agreement and rules of the board etc, and while I did not see it listed, I hope I am not violating any rule, because I must say right away I am not a parent (but someday will be, am married (not expecting as of now), and have nephews and nieces on both sides). I skimmed over some of the categories and may respond to some within the next few weeks. I am interested in learning as many things as possible to prepare me for fatherhood (i realize you are not ready until it actually comes, you can read all about it). I realize some who post here have challenging difficulties with kids who have depression, and serious challenges compared to some who have more minor issues, but the way I see it, we all have some sort of issue, we are all human, all make mistakes, but can all learn about it. Anyways in not wanting to share too many personal things, all the rest I shall say for now is I live in the continental US, Midwest, so that is my quick background. My one quick question for now is regarding children's technology now adays, such as cell phones, but in how cell phones are so much more now. I am in my late 20s, but recently I got into a disagreement with someone over if kids should be allowed to have Cphones, and that is what made me want to find a place to ask about this kind of thing. I simply said that someday my kids could have a cell phone limited when they learn to drive, and only for calling, no texting, no internet, no nothing else. Am I crazy?
