10 Reasons Why Handheld Devices Should Not Be Banned for Children Under the Age of 12

Occupational therapist Cris Rowan thinks that handheld devices should be banned for kids under the age of 12. Here are ten reasons that’s dumb.

1. Really? You want a law enforcement officer to have the right to ask you why your kid is holding your phone for you?

2. Who is going to be able to figure out the glitches for me if my fourth graders are not available?

3. Parents of kids with special needs JUST figured out the app that lets them stand in the grocery line without some old hag glaring at them about their ‘misbehaving’ child.

4. Really? You want a law enforcement officer to have the right to ask you why your kid is holding your phone for you? Yes, I know I already used that one, but I’m still thinking about how dumb this is.

5. My kid is not obese. TV is just as much to blame for obesity. Shall we ban that too?

6. Your claim that technology is not sustainable is moot.

7. My kid is not aggressive. In fact, I often wish she were more aggressive. Should she still be under the ban?

8. Really? You want a law enforcement officer to have the right to ask you why your kid is holding your phone for you?

9. See number 4.

10. See number 8.
