I love running into Go Ask Mom readers when I'm out and about. The other week, I met a mom who was having a disagreement with her teen.
Her 13-year-old daughter desperately wants a cell phone and she's made the usual arguments: All her friends have one, it might come in useful in an emergency and ... did I mention already, all her friends have one. This mom isn't so sure her daughter is ready for the responsibility and was wondering how others have handled the same situation.
