We are preparing students for adult life; we should, therefore, allow them to use the tools that they will be using in their adult life. If we are preparing our students for life after school, we should allow them to use the tools they will be using when they get there. Today many kids are having back problems and guess where they are getting this from their BACKPACKS! It's a proven fact that cell phones can help solve this epidemic and instead of the crying, suffering and endless pain all your kids need is a phone. There will be no more ' Mommy back hurts or I can't walk it's too heavy or can you carry my backpack for me?" None of that you will hear. Another reason is financial problems every year your kids have these long lists of school supplies now you can throw all that away because all they will need I a phone.Many parents today can't afford everything and they try their best to give their kids education, but how can they do it without books. Don't worry there is another way so drop those school bills and stacks of supplies all you need is a phone. Today there are so many things you can do online. like talking to your teachers or taking a test or doing homework. Soon there will be no need for school supply shops all you need is a phone store and you're good to go. Phones also teach kids a sense of responsibility like there is always a time for everything or how to take care of their belongings all that comes from one simple device and its called (drum roll please) A PHONE!

Okay there is pros and cons but it does better than harm
It's true it is a distraction but as they months pass they will learn that there is a time for everything and they have to be mature enough to handle it. As they grow older they realize that there are consequences for their actions and when they grow up they will need to handle it. That's why, because if they don't know now when there young they will never know in their life so we are preparing them for the future.

It almost seems like, the more teachers fuss about it, the more students want to hide them in class.
