What's the right age to get my kid a phone?

By: Lillian Doremus

It's not a one size fits all answer. Join the conversation.


Earlier this month we introduced Just Kids, the perfect plan for children starting their digital journey. As kids start to experience access to robust internet content, both the parent and child are faced with making responsible decisions.

Bring Your Kids to Work Day.

On April 24 at 11AM ET, members of our Up to Speed team will host a live Facebook and Twitter event regarding a child's entry into the digital world. Stephen Balkam, Founder and CEO of the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI) will join Katie Regner and Andrew Testa in an open and honest conversation about the fears parents face and the freedom their kids are clamoring for.

During this event, all employees will have access to Facebook and Twitter, so watch it live and join in the fun. Simply follow @VZUPTOSPEED and watch the event as it streams live. Be sure to comment and like too!

For those who work in Basking Ridge, we'd love for you to join the event as a part of our live audience. Please go to VZWeb to register.

Whether attending in person or online, be sure to leave a comment below for Stephen and we'll get to as many of your questions as we can.
