    I think that it matters how mature your kid would be with a phone than how old your kid is

    Why is everyone so pale in 2018? I know !! Serious illnesses are forming as people clamp those radioactive devices (cell phones)next to their noggins. I’m an activist in this area. Don’t believe me? Then once you’ve subscribed & watched this channels’ videos – go watch Dr.Barry Trower on youtube. Prepare to buckle up your shakras for this one.
    This epidemic and DNA damage already done by ALL wireless devices (mice – keyboards) is going to make smoking look like a bouncy castle. It just so happens "they" chose the exact frequencies out of thousands available – that cause most harm to human cellular activity (2.4ghz) I don’t even want to think about 5G and how it is going to effect oxygen absorption in our cells – it’s too early in the morning. Remember: Dr Barry Trower. If you have the gonads to listen & learn. Maybe you could help others.
    This aint no conspiracy theory folks. They want rid of at least 95% of the human population. FACT. "silent weapons for quiet wars". Copy and share this information. If you still have empathy and aren’t completely controlled (consciousness assimilation); by your android or apple device. pssst: "not your friend!!!" (hint).

    It’s 2019 and 4th graders have iPhone X’s (2017 version hand me down from parents)

    Middle school is full of top of the line iPhones and Android’s for the rich less popular kids, that are academically successful, really old phones for the popular kids, and mid spec phones for the average kids.



  24. Roblox Editz on August 27, 2019 at 2:16 pm

  33. I hate Millennials on August 27, 2019 at 2:25 pm

    Spoiled little brats don’t need cell phones. These parents are fucking stupid. Make your kid go out and get fresh air and exercise. These parents are raising entitled little bastards who will be living at home at 30. They have no sense of responsibilities.



  34. Just Chilling on August 27, 2019 at 2:25 pm

    Now all these 11 year olds be pulling up with them iPhone XS Max…

  40. I don't know I'm bored on August 27, 2019 at 2:33 pm

    I got my first phone when I was 10 years old. It was a old galaxy s2 and then, I got a iPhone SE two years ago when it was brand new. I dropped the iPhone when I was filming my cousin, Nicholas when he was yelling at a box that fell down the stairs. Then, I got a Samsung galaxy On5 for a little while until, two weeks ago, I got a Samsung galaxy j7 v. I am going to buy Nicholas his first phone and he’s 8. I might get him a grocery store phone and a firefly phone to fool with him.
