Growing Concern Over the Safety of Cellphones for Children…

Quoted from http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/03/07/business/mobile08.php:

Growing concern over safety of cellphones for children – International Herald Tribune

The above article addresses parenting fears surrounding how cell phone use may have an adverse effect, through radio-frequency electromagnetic fields emitted by mobile telephones, on the developing brains and tissues of children.  Scary stuff if you ask me.

While all this may prove to be true, I am currently more concerned about the other dangers facing young children and even teens.  The dangers I am referring to have nothing to do with physical harm generated from actual use of the phone itself.  –Next thing you know, we will be telling little boys that if they “play” with their cell phones too much they will grown hair on their hands… or will it be hair on their phones?  Hah!  Of course, that would never work as every teen alive would love to have a hairy cell phone… their whole lives revolve around hair so bring it on!

The fear I have is with the vulnerability of younger children with these connections to the universe. At a minimum we must have full transparency into their phone usage. As investigative parents, we must know the identity of every single person on our child’s calling list.  If, with my daughter, I were to simply ask her to tell me the identity of everyone on her phone list, she would have one of those…well… whatever they are calling a “hissie fit” these days! 

So, instead of creating a rift in our trust-based relationship by asking her to tell me everything, I will take the higher road by “borrowing” my cell phone that I am lending to her and then use it to do some serious Investigative Parenting! 

I start with her phone’s contact list.  But the names associated to the numbers are jiji or molo or trev… not a great start!  So who is jiji and jolo?  Well, now we start getting serious.  You see, mommies and daddies are becoming just a little high tech too and we are starting to at least grasp this amorphous internet thing that is everywhere and nowhere….. yikes!  Back to high tech parental dominance!  Next we need to find the best reverse phone lookup site.  But we see thousands of different options and it is hard to be clear if there is a difference between a regular reverse phone lookup and a reverse cell phone lookup.

But wait… if there’s one thing we adults know how to do when high tech comes a knockin’  it’s to grab a print copy of our favorite paper, sit in our chair and refused to speak to anyone for 10 minutes while we regain our grasp on manhood!  No… we do the smart thing and that is allow others to do all the exhaustive research involved in finding the best reverse phone lookup sites which include cell phone registries. 

So off we go into the cloud that is the internet and we happen upon my favorite little Public Records Review site, www.CompleteReviews.net.   The great thing is they are totally dedicated to the public records search arena (huge marketplace!!!) so they have some in-depth knowledge to freely share with us.  We know we want reverse cell phone lookup so we hit their site and conveniently find 3 top rated and reviewed reverse cell phone lookup options.  Pricing appears to be very competitive with each product so we decide to go with the number one choice and even upgrade to their Unlimited plan for a year.  That means we can do all the reverse phone lookups we want for an entire year (and YES they do cover cell phone registries) for less than 40 dollars.  We pat ourselves on the back for our astute money saving tactics!

We are saved… or our children are saved I should say because we fought our fears, used our tools and spent a little time and money.  We did a little Investigative Parenting and it paid off.  Now I am totally sure that no 44 year old, 280 lb. man named Chucky has been calling my daughter pretending to be a cute little 12 year old girl from the next town over. We are relieved and at peace because we know that, at least now, her cell phone is the special tool it should be… letting her talk, talk, talk with her girlie friends for hours on end while we parents work, work, work so we can afford her cell phone bill!!!

God bless our kids and God bless us so we can protect them long enough so they can, one day, take care of us in our “feeble years”!  Maybe they will even give us a cell phone to use when we move back in with them.  They might have to just do some Investigative Parenting of their own then…
