If you have a young child at the moment, then you will probably have been asked whether they can have a mobile phone or not. If you are worried about the fact that the radiation might be damaging their brains, then you should take into account the fact that not everything means that they will have radiation damage.
Firstly, if your child uses text messaging more than phone calls, then you should rest assured that this is not as dangerous. Because your child is not holding the phone near their head, the radiation is not getting to their brain so this is a much safer way to communicate with them.
Even if they wish to make phone calls, then you can buy them a hands free device which means that they won’t have to hold their phone next to their ear.
In addition to the health issues that are involved with having a mobile phone, then you should also make sure that your child is not spending too much money on their mobile phone. You should be able to set limits on their phones so that they don’t have to spend more money than you’re happy for them to spend on phone calls.
The final issue that you need to be aware of is the fact that you can get internet on most phones these days, so you should make sure that you know who your child is talking to. Encourage them to be open with you about who they’re chatting to, and you should be sure that your child can use their mobile phone healthily and safely.
So, if your child is insisting that they want a mobile phone, you can rest safely in the knowledge that you should be able to allow them to do this and stay healthy at the same time.
