When Should A Child Get A Smartphone?

About 45 percent of U.S. children get a smartphone between the ages of 10 and 12, according to a Nielsen survey. But is that a good thing? And what is the right age to get a child or teen a smartphone, anyway?

Our guest on this week’s edition of Words of Wisdom is youth ministry expert Jonathan McKee, who tackles those and other tough questions that 21st-century parents are asking. McKee is the author of more than 20 books, including his latest one, The Teen’s Guide to Social Media & Mobile Devices (Shiloh Run Press).
