Smartphone usage for kids

My eldest daughter will be turning 11 next month and doesn’t have a smartphone.

We bought her a tablet for educational purposes only. It contains educational apps and a few games. This tablet has no social media apps on it.

She can use our laptops or her tablet to access the internet for information. Sourcing information for projects or assignments but this is also monitored by us. But having restricted use of a tablet or laptop is not the same as having your very own smartphone.
