    At what age did your child get a mobile phone or watch that they can’t omg the other parent ? My daughter wants a watch that can ring me as her father won’t let her ring me when she wants. Is there any good plans or how did you work it as I will be the one solely paying for it and I just want her to be able to ring me only and it’s only got my number on it for her to call

    It depends on the situation. I know when my kids were really young I didn’t want them ringing their dad all the time they were with me and vice versa. So I waited until all their friends were getting phones for social purposes and that was around age 12.

    Personally I don’t always think it’s best for children to be able to keep ringing the other parent. Every situation is different, but it can make it harder for them and the parents. The odd call when needed but just be careful as it might create an issue, I have seen it happen.

    we respect each others boundaries when calling our son on visitation. once daily is enough.
    i think a phone commencing around the age 11 or 12 would be okay
