Every week a Guardian Money reader submits a question, and itâs up to you to help him or her out â a selection of the best answers will appear in next Saturdayâs paper.
This weekâs question:
My 11-year-old son is at secondary school and wants his first mobile. I fear it will be another device to become hooked on (a la the PlayStation) and am refusing. He says heâs the only one without one and this is almost child abuse. Can I reasonably hold out?
