Some parents forbid young children from owning smart phones (cell phones with Internet access), while others disagree and believe that they are important tools for keeping in touch. Which point of view do you think is better, and why?

Parents feel smart phones make children inactive and drive their concentration away from academics. Hence they forbid their children from owning smart phones at a young age. I agree to their point of view for 2 reasons, which I will explore in the following essay. First of all, the young age where an individual trys to learn new things is said to be the most volatile phase of an individual. Hence proper guidance and care must be acknowledged to him. This is the phase where the individual is too curious, he/she may not know whether they are going at the right track or not. Moreover, this is the phase where the individual must work very hard to have a bright future. Smart phones distracts their concentration and hinders their progress. Hence it is essential to forbid young children from smart phones. Secondly, the content which an individual encounters in smart phones mostly are not sensored and it influces him in the worst way possible. This makes him to develop a habit of visiting and viewing that content repeatedly. In conclusion I feel that, young age of an individual is meant only for growing and working hard to attain his goals. At this stage, unnecesary influences derails the individual's concentration from working hard.
