Kids don't need a smartphone, just go get a classic keypad phone for them as their first phone and you can even test and see how they take care of their phone. If they get addicted to smartphones, then they will only know Candy Crush-always-poppin-that-shitty-soda-colorful-cand​y-shit when they become adults. #SmartphoneDumbpeople
