It’s a conversation that is never gonna leave, if anything, it’s only going to get louder: what is the right age to give kids a phone?

Shannon, Kirste’s best friend, joined Brekky this morning to open this can of worms.

Her three boys are starting to pester her about having one, and she is wondering what approach to take.

Morro has a blanket rule in his household: no phones until you’re 16 years old.

His kids think he’s a dinosaur, but it’s worked for him.

So Brekky opened the phone lines, and the calls flew in!
