Hopefully this will clear the thought of online bullying from victims minds....

Should 12 year olds have a Cell Phone?

I think 12 year olds should have a cell phone. Because most kids, like me, walk home or ride the bus home/to school and pretty much need a phone.

The Internet should be helpful


The Internet shouldn't be that easy to get to, it shouldn't be that open to the public, but neither should it be open to some secret government project, we should limit research and remove what's unnecessary like games and social media.
