The Affect Cell Phones Have On Teens
For America teens , cells phone have become a vital social tool and texting their preferred mode of communications, according to the Pew Research Center’s Internet an American Life Project. The report shows that 75percent of teens between 12 and 17 now have cell phones. Some teens send over 50texts a day and/or calls. They think this is a social norm.

Texting and short , spontaneous conversation, have an affect on teens. It limits their development of the ability to converse in complete thoughts and form a complete sentence. Cell phone uses in school could loose a whole point , because they could use their cell point to text or be texted answers to a test.

There are many ways that teen are affected by cell phones. Texting while driving can cause their death and others. It can also affect their health., When teens sit for hours talking and texting and playing games, they don’t get proper exercise. Most of all, I believe it limits their social life.

  2. You made alot of great points. Not just teens thogh are relying on the cell phone and other forms of technology these days. Older people are just as gulity. I myself have adapted to the bad habit of texting everything and everyone. It does actually take away from many social advantages with friends and family. we were born with the ability to speak! We should use our voices more often.
