hopefully it's not a smart phone.
It is, but we have it set up so that he needs my approval before downloading any apps. We've given him a bunch of rules, including no social media, can't use it in his bedroom or bathroom, etc.

Most of his teachers are using some kind of app for class, so a smart phone made sense (rather than sharing with one of his classmates, which he had been doing). He's a good kid, and pretty responsible, so we took the plunge.
Good luck. How are you going to monitor internet usage? My friend just got his 15 year old his first phone...a flip phone. I think that's brilliant.
We thought about going the flip-phone route, but it sounds like school is using apps more and more. We even (only half-jokingly) told him that we're going to get him a Jitterbug.

Internet monitoring is something that we know we won't always been able to control. For now, we trust him - I spy on his browsing history at home and the worst I've found is that he watches YouTubers who occasionally use bad language (all video-game related stuff). He's pretty good about following the ground rules we lay out for him.

I know that will probably change when puberty hits.

He's already heard people cussing? Dude is going to be a gang banging drug dealer.

Sorry, Doc.

I can definitely assure you he's discovered incognito browsing and/or erasing his history one page at a time.

FDOT completely renumbered their design manual index. By a lot. Curb and Gutter went from index 300 to 520-001.

WTF guys? We've been using the same index numbers for decades :facepalm:
