Is it fair not to give your kids a smartphone? What if you use one?
Here is some information you may not have considered.
Is it Hypocrisy?
I hear all the time, “why can’t my kid have a smartphone if I do? Isn’t that hypocritical?” Nope. Junior is a dependent minor whose frontal lobe isn’t fully developed, and in some cases, for nearly a decade. You however are grown. If you have a teen it means that you do have a fully developed frontal lobe.
The frontal lobe controls the cause and effect part of the brain. In other words, it helps a person make wise decisions. You wouldn’t allow your child to drink, smoke, chew, or run with those who do, would you?
Being an adult even our government recognizes that you have rights by virtue of your age that your children are still yet to enjoy. Why? Because some double standards are just wise.
