comment How to protect my children from cyber-bullying
I agree in most cases, however in the specific instance of bullying online where bullies may be outwith any possible action, you don't have many options. And in my example it was definitely the right option in so many ways.

matthew - I would suggest deleting everything except your last two sentences. The rest is background that isn't necessary for the question.

comment When should kids get a cellphone?
You can live quite happily now without a mobile phone. It may be a desirable item, but it isn't essential. It's almost a luxury item.

comment What are the factors for deciding at what age to give a child cell phone?
I think this question is sufficiently covered by the answers on the question Erica linked to.

comment What should I consider when choosing a bicycle for a 5-6 year old child?
I really like the completeness of dave's answer, but my personal take on it is that for that age child, I just want a free hand-me-down bike. While they are growing, there is no point paying for a high quality bike, or one customised to their size - just get whatever you can, and when they grow out of it, pass it on to another child.

Also, there are a lot of extra factors, eg: 2 kids is less than twice as expensive as 1, but a third one is much more expensive - due to most services and facilities assuming a 2+2 family.
