Theenagers should not be allowed to use Mobile phone

  • The issues that arise with mobile phones outweigh the benefits

    Mobile phones create a lot of issues that make life harder such as bullying, Competition, Discrimination, And purposeful isolation. I do believe that teens should have the ability to communicate with friends, Just through less demanding and intrusive methods such as email or google hangouts as oppose to texting and calling. A more basic cell phone would even be sufficient as it holds no competition with models and no extras such as social media.

  • It Honestly Depends

    Whether I'd agree on this statement or not would greatly depend on what authority would enforce this rule. If it were simply a household rule right along side "love one another" and "no elbows on the dinner table", Or a school-wide policy, Then I'd be just fine with it. I see the need for a rule in those institutions, And I'd have no issue with an amish household, Or a school district with too many covert texters enforcing this. However, If you're thinking a nation-wide ban on cell-phones for minors, Then I'd go to say that it's borderline in justice. To take away a huge part of kids' lives would not only affect the kids themselves, But also the companies trying to market to them.

    In the event of an emergency: medical, Crime, Etc. Teenagers would have the access to call emergency services on their mobile phones, This can save the lives of him/her and people around him/her.
