There is a new movement across the nation where parents are taking a pledge to not give their children smartphones until 8th grade.  Instead opting only to provide them with phones containing the ability to call and send basic texts only.

This movement came from findings of Brooke Shannon whose research showed correlations between smartphone use and both sleep deprivation, and cyber bullying.

The movement has its own Facebook page which you can find here…

Will you join the pledge?
