Omg, 7 year Olds with Cell Phones!

Generation Z kids are getting their own cell phones or tablets now by the time they are 5 or 6 years old.

5 and 6-year-old Gen Z kids now have their OWN cell phones.

Yes, that’s right.

There are articles saying that gen Zers think it’s appropriate to receive a smartphone by 13years old.  I would like to know what generation Zers they polled for these answers?  Do most people even know what grade a 13-year-old kid is in?  I’ll give you the answer, it’s a kid who’s in the end of 7th grade or an 8th grader!

Once again Gen Zers are Not the ones giving that false information.

That is like saying that elementary school children (grades K to 6th) do not have a cell phone.  Are you kidding me with these stats??

Did anyone ever walk into an elementary school? Or talk to a teacher.  We have cell phones by 2nd grade, 4th grade at the latest! And Usually even earlier than that.  That is 7 to 9-year-olds carrying phones.

Your information is at least 6 years off, by saying 13-year-olds have phones.  You must consider the sources of where your information is coming from.

You can tell by these articles that Non-Gen Z’ers are the ones putting out this false information.  They don’t have a clue.  It’s absurd to think that we are waiting until the end of middle school to have a phone.

Gen Z kids with phones at age 5
It’s no longer Gen Z kids fighting over using their parent’s cell phones to play games. They all have their own mobile devices by the time they start elementary school and know how to filter out ads and share the ads and products they want to buy with their parents!

I am 12 years old & I received a cell to start 5th grade (10 yrs old). I was the last one of my classmates to get a phone. Most of my friends had one before 4th grade, but my parents held out.

We don’t even have house phones today or (land lines) whatever you older people call them. How do you expect us to contact anyone or call our parents, friends etc? It is our only means of communication.

When are you other generations going to understand that cell phones aren’t just a toy for us to play games on? They are a necessity in our lives today & our parents know this. Which is why they buy them for us.

Cell phones are Not a novelty like they were years & years ago!

If you people think we are that old when we receive a cell, then you really need to get your facts right. Do your homework!

This is exactly why you should be getting your information right from the source.

Remember, babies use their parent’s cell phones. Two & 3-year-olds are fluent in all touch devices. By the time kids are 6, 7 & 8 they are pros on a cell.

Second graders (7yr olds) are showing their parents what to buy for them from their own cell phones.

Your marketing demographics just changed again.
