I’d be grateful for any advice please. My son starts secondary school this year and the deal has always been that he will get a phone at this point, as he will be travelling alone by public transport.
He’d like the fanciest, most expensive phone of course but knows this isn’t on offer. It’s his birthday soon and I’d like to give him a phone as a present but I’m really not sure what to get him. I don’t want him to be laughed at for having an embarrassing phone but neither do I want to spend money on a phone that might be damaged or stolen. What do people normally get for rising 12 year olds please? I’m a complete novice. I’m assuming a smartphone and he already has Qustodio installed on his tablet (and no access to social media) so would be happy to replicate that on a phone.
