My parents forbade me from having a phone until I was 16 years old. Do you think that was too extreme on their part?

I know that depending on your age here, you grew up without a phone. But many of my generation grew up with one.

And I remember at school in my class I was the only girl who didn't have a phone. And that made me really angry at the time.

In fact, even when they allowed me to have a phone, it was just an old one and only allowed when I was away at school or with friends, so I could call them if there was a problem.
