One of the big debates in our house is what is the appropriate age to give our children cell phones. Yes, we are years away from this (I hope!), but we see our nieces and nephews all with phones, their heads down and fingers feverishly typing during family get togethers. Sure phones are important for kids who may ride the bus, or for divorced parents who may not be able to reach their children. But in my opinion, kids are too spoiled…and don’t necessarily need a phone (especially with internet) before middle school. My husband disagrees…but what else is new?
So I took this new age debate to Marlins Park to get the players parenting perspective. I’m always interested to get the athletes take on anything having to do with their kids!
For more fun Miami Marlins content, don’t forget to tune in to Billy’s Bunch this Saturday, May 3rd, only on Fox Sports Florida!
