Bill Gates is a Solid Dad

Bill Gates is THE tech icon of our generation and it's interesting that he recently revealed that he wouldn't let his own kids have a mobile phone until they turned 14. I'm sure he could afford one for them, but it shows insight that even though he pioneered a lot of software and pushed some hardware to new places, he didn't think it was necessarily beneficial for young people. As a parent, I would tend to agree. Either way, he had his reasons and I'm sure you have yours. Still, it's pretty insightful.

“We don’t have cellphones at the table when we are having a meal, we didn’t give our kids cellphones until they were 14 and they complained other kids got them earlier.” Just which phones they got is not clear – possibly not those designed by his long-time rival, the late Apple founder Steve Jobs?
