I accept this debate and will argue about why teenagers should have a right to sell phones.

Selling phones is a huge industry in America, and because the laws of child labor do allow teenagers of a certain age to work then those children do have a right to be selling phones because child labor laws say they are old enough to do so. This applies to capitalism in general because America's economy functions through the buying and selling of goods. Teenagers are of old enough age to be able to be employed in the jobs market, which includes selling phones, and if you think that teenagers should not sell phones when teenagers are of old enough age to be employed, when selling phones is perfectly legal in this country and a legitimate industry around the world, then you are terribly misguided. I dont know what kind of a place they are running in that twisted country called "Canada" where you are from but down here in America teenagers are allowed to work by selling phones, because in America we have things called freedom, and if Canada was actually worth anything we would have made it a state..... America is a land of free enterprise and even though we do have laws that restrict how young someone in the workforce can be (among other things too) we dont need to curb these rights and liberties only in specific industries unless there is a good reason why, and you have not given any so far.

Selling phones meanwhile is not a waste of time for a teenager. It is a very viable way to make a living and in this tough economy, any thing goes. That teenager is learning life lessons about what it is like to work in the private sector at an early age and how hard it is to be a full time student and hold down a job. These work experiences he will have as a child will serve him for a long time in the future when he is looking for other jobs o when he has to multitask at many attention-demanding things, but we should not rob these children of a unique experience by saying that teenagers should not sell phones. What about other products that other teenagers sell? Should teenagers also not be allowed to sell other products such as fast food, clothes, coffee, and other items that are central to the functioning of the American economy? If teens arent allowed to sell phones then you by extension would also want teenagers to not be able to sell anything, maybe not even be employed at all! Raising working age limit laws are one debate but this is completely different since the Pro is only advocating that teens shouldnt sell phones but should be allowed to sell anything else, which is contradictory and illogical at the same time.

"every day my teacher has a desk full of phones befor 12 ."

That sounds like a hoarding problem or a bad investment strategy by the teacher. Students selling phones on campus during school hours is illegal but stop blaming the students for selling the phones because if teachers are the ones buying them then they are the ones at fault because they are the ones fueling this black market business, not the students.

"sell phones are a destraction and waist of time to a teenager"

Destraction [di′strak·shən]
(chemical engineering)
A high-pressure technique for separating high-boiling or nonvolatile material by dissolving it with application of supercritical gases.
http://encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com...

Selling phones is not a destraction since destraction is a chemical process for separating high boiling materials by dissolving them with supercritical gases. You might be thinking of the manufacturing of products for phones to be sold but that is a lot different from actually selling phones.

"so i think that teens dont need cell phones."
That is completely irrelevant from the process of separating high boiling materials by dissolving them with supercritical gases though..... It is also irrelevant since this debate is about whether or not teens should be selling phones.....
