Kids with cell phones have the means to keep in contact with parents about schedule changes and emergencies.
The struggle to balance the demands of work, family and friendships without outside assistance leads to stress, depression, anxiety or other problems.
Pew Research Center found that 20 percent of kids born to married parents experience divorce, while nearly 50 percent of kids in cohabiting families experience divorce.
Both of these groups of children have a better chance to one day live with a married couple than kids born to single moms.
Committed spouses or partners model a loving, caring, and supportive relationship for their children.
This translates into future success when children learn how to seek positive relationships and interact well with others.
