Don’t buy smartphones for children below 16: study
A review by a group of school experts has revealed that children should not be allowed to have smartphones till they are 16.
Unless parents are comfortable with leaving their children exposed to pornography and other vices that accompany smartphones usage by very young ones, the leader of the research, Tom Bennett, suggests that the kids should not have access to them.
“People ask me, ‘When should I give my child a smartphone?’ and I say, ‘Whenever you’re comfortable with them viewing pornography’, because their curiosity will take them there,” Bennett said.
He added: “My personal belief is that I don’t think a child should have a smartphone until they are 16, unless it is under adult supervision.”
The expert also affirmed that smartphones should be banned in smartphones because they pose an “enormous level of temptation” to their users who should be paying attention to lessons.
