Even as mobile phones have come to make our communication very easy, we have really allowed them to transform us. One thing is for sure that most people sleep with their phones under their pillows. You will even hear people saying that they cannot imagine a life without a phone.

In our day to day activities, we have come across warning messages especially in churches as a reminder of keeping our mobile phones off as respect for being in a sacred place. But most people tend to maybe ignore this or not taking it with the seriousness it deserves.

So you will find a high pitched ringing of a phone in the middle of a sermon and you can be sure what kind of a disruption follows. But this person is to blame for having the phone on in church. I remember an instance when a woman who had her mobile phone ring in church actually received the call and told the caller to wait for her call after the prayers are over.

But the there are instances when it appears that having a mobile phone may after all not be very necessary  or is a waste of time. Take for the case of a lady who is in a salon for the monthly treatment of her hair. In such situations, you will find that she takes regular breaks to respond maybe to the house help back at home and so something that could have taken a few minutes may in the end take hours.

Its true mobile phones may be very important to anyone maybe businesswise but it’s always good to do what you feel is right. This means you can put the phone aside may be even when in a meeting since it is not always about your phone but other things also matter. Remember your friend can invite you for dinner to have a good to have a good time together but your too much concentration on the phone can ruin everything.

Why Gag Media Law Is Not a Solution To Children’s Behaviors

Parents interviewed after the law putting limitations on what the radios and T.Vs are to put across or air for their audience really supported the move. This may be for the good of the children but it’s not yet enough for parents to rest.

As parents we have mobile phones which are readily available to our children. But its true most parents are ignorant what their children do with their phones. In my mobile repair shop, I’ve experienced a number of parents complaining that a son or a daughter subscribed to a certain code that is consuming all airtime that they put on their phones. Funny enough, most parents have limited knowledge as to what a phone can do since most of them think it’s okay for them to only know how to call or text anyone of their choice. So at this instance, children are out to discover more and they get it with no control.

Then peer pressure is also partly to blame for what the children are doing. This means by word of mouth, children are able to get information of anything new that the society has to offer like a new joint in town that plays latest upcoming music. So as parents, do you take time to know who your child’s friends are? As a parent, getting to know the friends of your child makes it easy to know what kind of a company your son or daughter has.

Then as a parent, do you give your child too much freedom such that he or she can do anything that he or she wishes to? As a parent, you ought to show your child so long as he is under your roof he or she is entitled to your rules.

But then I think the government has done its part so let the parents not relax since there is more to be done where the behavior of our children is concerned.
