https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/advice-centre/parents-and-carers/parents-guide-technology/smartphones

Above is a link to a guide all about smartphones for children.  It gives you some good advice on what to think about if your child already has one or if they are about to get one.

Smartphones are mobile phones with internet access. They are capable of a range of functions, including social networking, listening to music, playing games, browsing the internet, checking emails, taking photos and videos and watching TV – along with the usual texting and calling!   Smartphones provide a variety of interesting activities and ways for young people to engage with their friends and families. However, it is important to be aware of what these devices can do and how you can talk with your child to help them to use this technology in safe and positive way.
