This problem has been ragging on my brain for awhile. I see so many children with iphones and its taking away from the child experience. Children should not be trusted with phones younger than ten to twelve years old. This is spoiling them and I know from experience most spoiled children don't grow up to be productive adults. It's different if the child has health or mental issues but no normal children should get phones until their well into their pre-teen stage and can learn to value the technology.
Relatively new here (actually completely new), so I suppose I should begin by determining if you have any particular structure in mind for the debate.
Also (although this can be taken care of during the back-and-forth of later rounds), I think you may want to expound on what it is about the phones, specifically, that you find issue with. In all likelihood I suspect we're actually (primarily) talking about what sort of social content children of X age ought to have potential for exposure to, at which point the topic is framed as it has been because the modern-day phone simply makes it easier for anyone to access it.
Anyhow, I'll presume that your next round will be devoted to a more delineated set of bullet points against youth ownership of phones and I'll either offer separate pro-points (if you wish rebuttals to remain for later round) or I will counter the points you've offered.
Thanks for the pointers. The thing that annoys me most about children having phones is that it takes away from their childhood. They aren't experiencing the normal things that kids their age should be experiencing. While other children are outside playing they are sitting inside playing on their phones. The fact they can access innapropiate material doesn't bother me because I know there is nothing anyone can do about that. It would be better for them to get a phone when they are out of the younger stage of their childhood.
