They should have a cell phone with exclusive use to call their parents. Possibly a single number that they can call only.

Yes, I do think children should have cell phones. Nothing fancy just one that allows them to save numbers and emergency contacts like their parents if they get lost or stolen. Age is relative, it just depends when they know how to use one, probably ages 7 and up.
