    (Survey in October 2008)


    To keep in touch I bought my preschooler son an inexpensive cell phone with a prepaid SIM card, so I can call him. I also check his homework while I’m at work. - Sherry Gonzales-Apolinario, Marikina City, mom to Aisaac, 5


    High-tech times We shouldn’t let our children get left behind by the high-tech bandwagon. Providing preschoolers with cell phones teaches them to be responsible. It improves their social wellbeing also. - Celine Mendiola, Muntinlupa City, mom to Cogie, 1


    Just a simple model It is a modern necessity that allows parents to talk with and keep track

    of their kids, especially when picking them up from school or from field trips. I recommend giving kids a basic model. Save the more updated models for later. - Rolando Marlon Makayan, Quezon, City, dad to Adi, 5, and Thea, 10 months
