i am a teenager and I have a phone. my parents make me turn in my phone at 10 every night EVEN IN THE SUMMER! they think that I will be up all night destracted by it, but in reality I like to read before I go to bed. my body knows when im tired so that's when I turn off my lamp and shut my eyes. do they not trust me? I get anxiety at night and I feel a lot safer when im alone at night when I know my phone is in the room ( I know I can call someone if I feel endanger ) but I feel my parents think im lieing about that. they even make me turn in my phone when I have a friend sleeping over they still make me turn it in and sometimes they even make my friend turn in their phone too! and my other friends don't have to turn their phone in. feel I need my phone for the time, alarm, and sometimes calendar and since I have a phone I don't get why we should have to spend money on a new alarm clock and watch. shoudnt my parents trust me!?
Assuming you're a minor, that is under 18 years of age, your parents have full rights over you, and by law, you don't have legal possession of anything, (even if you used your money to purchase it) until you turn 18 years old. Considering this, we see that your parents have full legal responsibility of taking your phone off of you whenever they want to. Period.
Now, let us consider the moral side of this argument. Is it morally acceptable to take your phone off of you at 10:00 PM? Certainly. Some children have to go to sleep at a specific time, and a lot of children don't even have phones. It is not abnormal for you parents to care about you, and want to ensure that you get proper sleep every night. 10:00 PM certainly seems like a reasonable time.
my parents don't understand my charger is on the other side of my room (I like my phone fully charged when I wake up) so when that my body is tired and I need to wind now I go plug in my phone and lay back in bed and go to sleep or read,all I want is one week to prove to my parents that I can be responsible at night with my phone so they should let me have my phone for 1 week in my room to see if I can wake up by myself at a decent time and not be tired all day, shouldn't they trust me?
