Here's why Pink prevents her daughter from using a mobile phone
Singer Pink claimed that she isn't against kids or them using the technology; however, not at the cost of their health and education
Alecia Moore, popularly known as Pink is very strict when it comes to children. The singer shared an instance with her daughter through social media, which exhibited her attitude towards kids; just like any other careful parent. Even though she is a celebrity and enjoys various luxuries, she doesn't want to spoil her kids with modern technology. Pink stated that her 10-year-old daughter asked for a new cell phone, and she clearly replied with a big NO!
When it comes to gadgets, Pink is very cautious about its usage, especially for her daughter, Willow who is now in 5th grade. When she had asked her mom for a "cell phone", the 42-year-old, mom of two, explained that she won't allow her to have one, until she proves herself worthy or mature enough to use one. While she, as an entertainer, has benefited a lot from the rapid development of technology including social media, Pink doesn't want to make her children like other star kids in the industry.
Pink opened up about the incident on the "Today" show on Thursday, February 24. She said, "There's a light side and a shadow side to technology in general for adults, as well," she explained to host Carson Daly. "For kids, I'm not there yet." Pink said that she didn't even budge when her daughter tried to reason why she needed a phone. "I have a 10-year-old who does not have a phone, although she pointed out to me yesterday, 'You know most of the kids in my class, fifth grade, have a phone.' That doesn't move my needle. I don't care," she shared.
The artist also claimed that she isn't against kids or them using the technology; however, not at the cost of their health and education. "We can't be dinosaurs ourselves as parents, we have to sort of embrace it and go with it," she added in her interview. Experts recommend waiting as long as you possibly can when it comes to giving your kid a cellphone. There’s an entire organization called Wait Until 8th, where experts are urging parents of today’s kids to wait until they hit the 8th grade before they get a cellphone of their own. And Pink appears to be picking up on that.
Pink and her husband Carey Hart are now enriching their lives and making it up by bringing the fun to their home. Not engaging children much to electronic gadgets and seems like Willow and 5-year-old son Jameson are not receiving cell phones anytime soon. Pink's confession comes after Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were feuding on social media over their daughter North's use of TikTok.
