I feel her pain, but not enough to hand over a piece of Steve Jobs’ genius and the ability for her to tune the world out in favor of apps. I’m sure there’s plenty of productive reasons for her to have a smartphone, but I’m not really feeling like any are solid enough to justify it. But for her to be able to text me at a sleepover and let me know she’s OK or tell me when swimming practice ends early so I can pick her up? I’m all about that."
