The short answer is it depends on the 11 year old. The ideal young candidate for contacts is clean, neat and responsible. To gauge this, take note of how clean the child's bedroom is. I constantly have to tell my five year old to wash his hands whereas my 12 year old I don't. But when he was 5 I had to. I generally consider 10 years old and older for contacts because it seems to be about the time this transformation and maturity seems to develop.
