Each of my kids have one. Against my better judgement they have one. The oldest can live without it which is nice. The middle one depends on it as if his life is over if it ever disappeared. The youngest loves it, but can do without it.
If the oldest and youngest lose the device they will live. They will find something else to do. The middle? He rants, raves, gets mad, cries, screams, and is unable to think of anything other than how he can earn it back. Why are some children sooo dependent on these stupid things?
What did you allow against your better judgement?
