I’m all for the wonders which have been made possible by the widespread access to the internet, but the article below states that most children have access to phones by 7 years old! Wow; when did that happen?!? Given this is long before many children can recognise all the different genres of language, will it further encourage the use of ‘text speak’ in everyday language I wonder? Thanks goodness for proofreaders!
