Survey shows majority of tweens now have cell phones

cellphoneCell phones are not just for teenagers any more. Nearly six out of 10 (56 percent) parents of tweens (children aged 8-12) have provided their children with cell phones, according to a new survey conducted by ORC International for the National Consumers League, the nation’s oldest consumer organization.

Of those parents, roughly a quarter is facing higher bills than they had expected to pay in order for their child to have a cell phone, according to the survey.

The survey is part of NCL’s continuing commitment to providing advice to parents of preteens who are considering buying their children’s first cell phones.
