hi Priti Desai! I believe it won't be a gud idea to give her personal smart phone at this point in time for a simple reason, it could prove to be a distraction. having said that u could give her a simple phone so that u could connect with her when she is away for a class or any activity to ensure she is safe. u could promise her a smart phone once she finishes her 12th Std. meanwhile she could use your phone for max one hour, if she wishes to and if u r ok with it. don't just deny her demand but explain to her your apprehensions regarding the same. this is my opinion and I would request fellow parents to pour in their suggestions on this.

Hi Priti, i too feel that it's not advisable to give smart phone esp when You say that your daughter doesn't have self control. Before you come to any conclusion or take decision, ask her to convince you why she needs a phone. If you think there are other ways to contact you or if you are not convinced of the purpose she mentions, tell her you would get her later. Even if you feel that that needs a phone to contact you, like Shikha said, it need not be a smart phone.
