Growing up I didn't have my own phone or tablet til I could pay for it with my own money. I got a job as a dishwasher when I was 14 and paid for my first phone and it felt great. Now I take a look around me and take a look at my family and see that a lot of children have their own devices. My younger sister recently got my mom's old phone and my younger brothers use my dad's iPad constantly. I understand times are changing and a new generation is growing but I still don't think kids should be allowed to have their own devices til they can responsibly pay for it or take care of it. The devices they use are constantly needing to be cleaned and in bad condition. Personally when I have kids of my own, they won't be on mobile devices til they are at least 10.
Social media can ruin the idea of growing up in a split second. YouTube, Instagram, Facebook etc can all have a positive impact on young minds teaching them things and all that, but it will mostly be negative if they use it. They will get addicted and want to watch YouTube all day and one wrong search can lead to uncomfortable conversations and things they shouldn't know until they are older. My younger brothers and cousins are watching YouTube constantly and the stuff they watch is extremely weird and in some cases scary. I worry that it's taking away from their child hood and just mind numbing them. Thanks for reading if you got this far.
Edit: I have seen a lot of people who got a device at a younger age around ages nine through eleven for communication with their parents I do not have an issue with this. However it is when a parent just gives their child a device wether it be a mobile phone or tablet that is fully paid for is when I start to disagree with the parents decision.
For context I’m a bank teller at one of the biggest banks in the U.S. This is also by far the highest paying job I’ve ever had as I only just graduated high school.
This dude who looked to be on the older side came in and he wanted to know why his debit card kept declining. So I pulled up his account history and there was literally pages upon pages of online purchases. The gag? Every single one of the purchases was OnlyFans. I guess that he subscribed to many many pages......and the craziest part was that they were over the last few days directly after he got paid so he got a bunch of money then blew it all on OnlyFans subscriptions!
When I saw the account history I pretended to cough because I had the biggest urge to laugh but I managed to hold it in. I asked him if he had online banking or if he’d managed to look at his account history recently & he said no. I offered to print it out for him and he said yes please. When I handed the printouts to him, he just said ahhhh. And I came so close to laughing again but I managed to hold it in and be professional. Then I asked if he made those purchases and he just dejectedly said yes. And. I. Giggled. I couldn’t help it. He gave me this weird look & left. Afterwards I had to excuse myself to the bathroom and laughed it all out of my system.
I guess he called in to complain because after I came from my lunch break my manager called me into his office and now we’ve scheduled a call for HR tomorrow. I’m probably pretty fucked..
TL;DR - laughed at a guy when I saw his bank account history was full of OnlyFans subscriptions and I’m prolly gonna lose my job for it
