The adorable almost 14-year-old Modern Family actress Ariel Winter just walked the red carpet at the 69th annual Golden Globes. She looked age-appropriate and youthful in a fun, flirty and frilly purple dress by Dolce & Gabbana and stopped to talk to E!’s Giuliana Rancic about her home life.
Not only did Winter admit that she likes to hang out with her “normal” non-celeb friends, she said the only thing she wants more than a puppy for her 14th birthday is a cell phone. That’s right, this young Hollywood star has a job and no cell phone. How does she get by with a career in TV and no phone?
She sees her co-workers in person, she says. Turns out, Winter doesn’t really need to be reached by producers and cast members when she’s not at work, she just shows up to the set on time and does her job! How novel. Riddle yourself this: if a teen with a career in television doesn’t need or have a cell phone, does your kid really need one? What if instead of obsessively calling your teen to check on their whereabouts, you just trusted and expected your child to be where he or she is supposed to be and told them to be ready for pickup at a pre-planned time and place? You know, the way things were when we were kids? Just a thought!
