Good morning class, Miss Wannacott, and Miss Toni. Today I will be discussing whether teenagers should be able to own their own phone

I personally believe that there are two sides to this argument. So let me show you the positives first.

I would like you to look at this statistic, 98% of 8A does have a mobile phone but only 2% don’t, which proves to us that mobiles phones are popular and a way of life for most teenagers. According to the survey that was conducted on the 5th of the 9th mobile phones are mostly used for texting and social networks. I personally believe that having this statistic in front of us it is obvious that teens should be allowed to own a mobile phone, because it is important to fit in with others and popular groups.

Phones are not only used for calling and texting it is also possible to get other apps.  Some of the apps you can get are music, games, calculator, clocks, calendars and social networks. With these apps you will never be late thanks to your clock, you will never fail a maths exam because of your calculator, and you will never be bored thanks to social networks, games and music.

Furthermore cell phones are a way of keeping in contact with family and friends thus keeping them safe. If your child was in trouble they could ring you so you could help them. Image that your CHILD was about to be attacked and they wouldn’t be able to contact you because they don’t have a phone. Would you like that on your mind?

So now that we talked about the positives and we will discuss the negatives.

Cyber bullying is one of the most common forms of bullying. Teen can get bullied by texting every day. Facebook is another way of getting bullied this has everything to do with mobile phones because these day most phones you can access Facebook on them. Bulling is one of the most reasons why teens commit youth suicide. Allowing your child to have mobile phone is a bad idea.

Another bad feature about mobile phones is that the battery doesn’t last for ever. So when you need an alarm or calculator your phone might be flat or low on battery. Especially when you’re bored and you want to play the new apps you just brought or the new songs well think again coz you can’t!!!

To end the negatives I will be talking about how cell phones are unsafe. They are especially dangerous for teenagers because they give out their number to everyone. They can put their number up on Facebook and complete strangers could get hold of their number and call them and pretend to be someone there not.

In conclusion mobile phones are good for their apps, music, games and the fact that you know you can contact your child when you need to talk to him/her. Mobile phones are bad in way because the battery doesn’t last for ever, you can get bullied. 

Thank you for listening….
