Many teenagers and pre-teens get mobile phones as early as possible, sometimes younger than the age of 12. It is encouraged socially, especially among teenagers, to have a phone, and many teenagers get phones just because of peer pressure. Mobile phones can be very useful, for communication between kids and parents (especially teenagers that can’t drive), and can be very important in emergencies. But mobile phones can also be used for less important reasons, such as excessive amounts of texting. One big issue concerning mobile phones and teenagers is the use of mobile phones in school.
For example, an elderly lady is having a heart attack in the middle of the street, or you get into some trouble like you’re getting raped or assaulted. In these situations you can really use a phone, but house phones won’t work because you aren’t inside a home, that’s why teens need cell phones. After all, better be safe than
At first glance it seems it would be equally as beneficial for adolescents to have a cell phone to help parents stay in contact and keep track of them, but with a closer look at the negative effects that a cell phone can cause to a teen’s health, behavior, and education, it becomes clear that the possible detriments far outweigh any conveniences that a cell phone may offer. The most obvious threats that come along with cell phone use are the physical risks. Young adults feel they are impervious to danger and take chances with texting and driving. In Amy Novotney’s Dangerous Distraction, she discusses some of the various studies done on the effects of using a cell phone while driving. These studies show how conversing uses different cognitive skills than other activities and takes up a human brain’s “bandwidth” (Novotney).
The use of electronic devises to track young children probably means the parent is allowing too much freedom or unsupervised activities at too young an age. Others may argue that mobile phone provides a level of safety in the event of an emergency. They may contend that despite best efforts children still become separated from their parents in crowded areas, like an amusement park. Realistically, most families vacation one to two times a year; the cost of a cell
They want them to bring along their cell phones at any time, in order to know their whereabouts and enable their children to make contact with them in case of emergencies. Of equal importance, students occasionally must inform their parents or drivers if they have last minute school schedule changes or something has to be done after school hours. Furthermore, there’re only disadvantages to go against parents, and prohibiting cell phones can also lead to inconvenience for students. Most schools only take in the negative effects of allowing cell phones into consideration but never think of the problems it may cause if cell phones are prohibited in school. Likewise the numbers of students that use cell phones to cheat on tests; distract and escape classes are just a few.
We should become more enthusiastic and energetic so that child would be encouraged to play. Children at this age would cry for very simple things. Therefore we are the ones that should calm them down and comfort them. You might find that children at this age may imitate adults. Therefore it is essential that we behave in a very good mannered way, so that we could be good role models for them.
1) What are the parents' perception of early intervention in the early development of their deaf child 2) Are the children's competence and performance enhanced when formal language (either speech or sign) is used in this prime period? Hypothesis It is my hypothesis that when these children are given help at an early stage they will definitely improve and master the only mode of communication that they will have to do with in the future thus avoiding future problems in regards to their development. Methods I conducted my research in an area of the upper mountain region provinces that contains a large number of individuals with hearing impairments and schools with
Some positive statements were written in an article entitled Positive and Negative Impacts of Technology on Children written by a website called Inside Technology. It stated that there are some positive aspects of technology regarding today’s children. The article also said that today’s new technology has caused children to be more creative which has resulted in the creation of better innovations Another positive aspect of current technology according to the article is how technology encourages children to work as a team and solve problems together. Not to mention, developing new technology and ideas can have an empowering effect on today’s youth (Goessl 2011). I think that feeling empowered and intelligent are good qualities everyone should have.
I know I do and have used it more than once to summon help. How much more necessary is for children to have one on their person “just in case?” School policies are not always made to benefit all students. The disallowing of cell phones because of misuse by a minority of students is unfair to the majority who would follow the rule of no phone use in classes. Cell
With the new “smart phones” everyone wants to text, especially while driving, which isn’t smart for all people who can’t multi-task. Also, with the social networking sites, they now have apps you can use on your phones, which can be a distraction for people working, or in school, etc. This society as a whole is dependent, and it seems to only be getting worse. You know technology is being over-used if you and your spouse are in the same room, holding a conversation through text message (Patrick). That is just pitiful.
