Staying Connected With Teens
The latest rite of passage for many of today's teens has less to do with getting a driver's license or a later curfew than it does with talking to parents and taking on more responsibility.
The new "rite" involves teens getting their own cell phones-and for many parents, it represents a great way to stay in touch with on-the-go teens, while granting them a little added freedom. However for teens, cell phones are often about more than just making calls and learning about managing phone plans. They're also a way to communicate their personal style and express their independence.
