9th Grader Gets Teased About Her Old Cell Phone – Daily Dilemma [AUDIO]
I suppose you could replace the cell phone in this dilemma with a lot of things like clothes, jewelery, or shoes. It is pretty common unfortunately for kids to tease those less fortunate than themselves. The truly ironic thing is they are all equally poor, as it is their parents who have the money and not the kids. Some parents are just a little more generous with the things they will buy their children than others. I don't really know which parenting policy is better, I like to think I'm somewhere in the middle.
Here is what our listener wrote in to us: "I'm in 9th grade and feel like everyone at school has a fancy, smartphone. I, on the other hand, only have an old, flip phone. My friends tease me a bit and every day that I have this flip phone, I feel like I'm looked as less and less cool. My parents say I can update my phone, but I have to 'earn it.' How can I make them see that now a days, a cool phone is necessity at my age."
