"As families and caregivers carefully weigh the pros and cons of entrusting their children with cell phones, the actual recipients of these devices––children––may lack the intellectual capacity and emotional maturity to navigate their newfound independence. Drs. Covino and Englander’s You Got a Phone! provides essential tools for productive cell phone usage, encouraging readers to pause, employ impulse control, and maintain a healthy life balance. Steve Marks’ witty illustrations pair perfectly with this text, providing a light-hearted perspective to this common-sense guide. Insightful, research-based, and developmentally appropriate, You Got a Phone! should be a requirement for ALL children receiving a cell phone. In fact, why not buy a copy and wrap it with a bow to present alongside the shiny new device? Then, you will be content knowing that you set your child up for a successful transition toward independence!"
