18 reasons my teen won't have a smartphone

Ok, so I realize my kid is barely approaching 4 years old, but this blog post by Beard nails my thoughts exactly.  Not only does it speak to my disdain for wasting money, the thought of teens with open, unmonitored internet access SCARES. ME. TO. DEATH.  My other fear is that by the time my kid is 16 and driving and actually may need a phone, basic phones may not be available anymore.
Bottom line: there is NO good reason for a kid to own a smartphone.  Beard says it best.
