Because by that age theyd be wanting to go out with friends and gain independence.
I wouldn't want them out for so long with no way of calling for help or contacting me.
Also I would hope by then theyd be mature enough to make their own decisions (online etc) and be safe.
They won't be getting any devices other than maybe an MP3 type device that has music/radio/video capabilities only before fifteen years.
Thats right. An electronic device that has no access to the internet. I bet thatd shock a lot of kids these days.
My kid will not be raised on technology.1

I got mine at 15 (well, my parents actually forced it on me, I didn't want a phone). So I'd say that's a reasonable age. I wouldn't know why any 10-year old needs a cell phone. Once I'm a dad, I will make my kids go outside and play in the forest. Kids these days don't do this stuff enough anymore. My mom made my sister and me stay out at the fresh for at least half an hour every day (sometime we spent the whole afternoon outside).2
