In my opinion, i think mobile-phones is not necessary for the children.It is actually one of the most important factor that lead the children to involve in social cases.This is because with mobile-phone,some of the children maybe misuse with it.They are influence by their friends to use the mobile-phone for other purpose such as to access unpleasant website in the internet without their parents knowing and others.(Afdhal)

I agree with you. Mobile phone is also a distraction for the children. They should not bring mobile-phones when going to school. They would neglect their studies and spend most of their precious time messaging their friends. They should know that mobile-phones sometimes are not helpful when we in critical situation. It is necessary for them to always stay alert and not easily believe in strangers. (Sarah)

I really think that children should not have cell phones at school. There is nothing wrong with children having a cell phone to use when needing to contact parents, but it should be turned off when in classes. A cell phone is really disruptive when it goes off in class and the student feels like he or she has to answer it. Text messages on the phone are as bad or worse than a call. (khalisah)

in my opinion,i totally disagree.Student are not allowed to brings their mobile-phones to school.The students will be careless to their study.They most prefer to play games in their phones or text message.This condition will disturb their concentration while teacher is teaching which it is not good for them.On the other hand, the students also exposed with high risk when their walk lonely.They maybe will robbed by robber who looking for their expensive mobile-phones.(sharifah muznah)

I agreed with you all, afdhalina, sarah, khalisah, and sharifah. It is ok if the parents want to buy one for their children since nowadays hand phone is one of the important gadgets for most of us. But for them to bring to school, I totally don’t really agree.

There are a lot of precautions that can we take to prevent social-ills and cases involving innocent children outside home, other than bringing hand phone to school.

Like what most of you had mentioned, hand phones are usually had been misused by children. There are a lot of such a weird videos uploaded by students through certain website. I don’t know whether they are just showing off or they just do it for fun, but seriously it is not ok to let them to bring hand phone to school.

Besides, children are easily distracted with something that is interesting in their phone rather than listening to their teachers.

Sharifah said, “students also exposed with high risk when their walk lonely. They maybe will be robbed by robber who looking for their expensive mobile-phones”. This is the other reason why certain parents are afraid of letting their children to bring phone to school, because the risk to be robbed is higher. So you better advice your kids not to do so if you want your children to be safe.

All in all, no matter what people say, STUDENTS ARE STRICTLY NOT ALLOWED TO BRING HAND PHONE TO SCHOOL as there is no black and white from the government to let the children to do so.

With that, I thank you

p/s: sorry madam for being late :-)

From my point of view,i would say that it would be better if the students do not bring their mobile-phones to school as their attention on studies would be distracted and at the same time there are high chances that the students would be up to something negative without their parent's acknowledgements.As this will lead to something bad,i would suggest that the students shall be equipped with self-defense such as martial arts and be taught to be more aware of the strangers instead of being equipped with mobile-phones.

Teacher said...

Khalisah, I think you agree that children should be equipped with handphones when going to school as they can use it only to contact parents, right? About the 'pollution of language' using sms, what can be said about that? The screens of handphones are too small for us to be typing in full sentences and spelling.

Muznah, don't you think if children are taught not to misuse the phones at early age they will be able to control themselves from abusing the use of handphones?

Sarah, Afdhal, Fitriah and Sally, don't you think if the children who were rapped, kidnapped or molested had their handphones in hand at the time of incident, they could have contacted their parents immediately?

Teacher said...

And... one more question: Where are the others?

section17black said...

I think my opinion would be distinguished from other opinion. Parents should teach their children how to use cell phone. Just look what happened as the case noreen. Just keep the phone in the pocket, only use when necessary. Bad or good of using cell phone due to the way the child is formed. We also can detect the children using their phone number. I highly recommended that children should bring cell phone everywhere they go. (firdaus)

I totally disagree because the children is the children and the children should not be treated as if they are adults.Some adults need to carry cell phones all the times because of business or in case of emergency. Furthermore, if children in an emergency situation, they can refer to school office for help. It is disruptive to the classroom teachers to have students using cell phones during class. (M.Syahmie)

I mean to bring cell phone all the time, not like a businessman, but we cannot predict what will happen especially to those children. Because I used to go through when I was child. I was missing from my parents when my parent are busy shopping for Hari Raya. Luckily I got an idea to wait at my parent's car. Many things can happen. Whatever it is, cell phone is very important to children, especially when it is in emergency.(firdaus)

Riza said...

I agree with you, Firdaus. From my point of view, children should be equipped with handphones. Even though prevention is better than cure, we could not predict the future. Sometimes children are kidnapped by the people whom they know such as their relatives or friends. So, even if we tell them not to talk to strangers, they still have the possibilities to be kidnapped. However, we must teach our children to use the handphones when necessary only. They would not concentrate in class if their handphones are not in the silent mode or off.

Dangers are everywhere. One can't predict on when the danger is coming. Those cases involving innocent children doesn't have any relation with having a cellphone or not. Let say if a girl is walking alone to the school in the morning and she has a cellphone with her, when someone is trying to kidnap her, that girl won't have much time to get her cellphone and dial up her mother or father's numbers to seek help. The parents should be blamed because their children are their responsibilities!!! They shouldn't let their children expose to the environment that leads to danger. Let me give another example, if the parents give cellphones to their children, the children won't be focusing much on their studies as they would be busy texting or calling their friends or even someone they never knew which leads to dangers. In a nut shell, parents shouldn't put the blame on others when their children are in dangers. Indeed, neither the children are with nor without cellphones, dangers can come to you not only to the children. Thank you. (hani khairul azman)

I agree with those who say that students should bring their handphone to the school. This is because they and also their parents can get much benefit from that, for example when they are really in need such as when the students have an emergency case or want to tell their parents that they are come back late from the school. I really think that it is necessary for the students to have their phones to school, so the government should let it goes well. The government should allow the students to bring their phone to the school. My parents also allow me to bring along my handphones when I was fifteen. (fazlina tahir)

I agree that children should bring their mobile phones with them.nowadays, there are a lot of dangers waiting outside without realizing it. so, as a precaution, bringing handphones can at least provide a good protection to them. for example, let say a girl is walking alone on her way to go home in a lonely on a street, she might need the cellphones to inform her parents where she is. on the other hand, handphones are actually not good to the children as it creates distractions to them.there are a lot of things that they can do with their handphones. thus, parents should be aware on how their children use their handphones.

Salam.
First and foremost, sorry madam as I just noticed this latest post.

I have read all the comments posted and seems like most of my classmates of the section 17 seems to pro not to allow the children to bring along their mobile phones to school. well, as for me, I am totally agree with firdaus, riza, fazlina and nabilah.

well. the topic is actually subjected to child who confirmed to be a person between the stages of birth and puberty, differ from us who are most probably are 18 or going to 18 or easily can be said that we have registered to the matriculation centre; not the primary school.

thus I disagree with afdhal who worries children might access the unpleasant websites in the internet.i knew children nowadays are really updated with all the western culture that are mushrooming to our country but in this scope, parents play a big role to mould them not to be easily influenced by all the wrongdoings and of course by providing islamic education/ way of life. so afdhal, don't you think it's much easier by simply hand them the 3310 Nokia to diminish your worry on this bad elements? I'm sure all of us have seen the 3310 series as it does not has the applications of accessing the internet.

sarah, you afraid they might get distracted in class right? I'll have my points on that later but don't you think they should own one mobile phone to avoid their parents or the bus/ van driver from picking them up late after the school hour's are over? well, if the parents or the bus/ van driver pick up late, this will most probably invites any unexpected incidents to happen such as robbery or kidnapping. we must be aware from any possibilities might happen today in this freaking world.

i agree with you, khalisah when u mentioned that they need to turn off their mobile phones in the class. but i have a suggestion that it would be better if the teachers collect the phones early in the morning before the class starts as it will look more practical to avoid some of the naughty students who might not obey to off their phones. at this point too, parents play a role as they need to acknowledge the teachers that their kids bring a phone to school.

as for sharifah, i guess we don't need to worry they might be robbed because of their mobile phones. as i mentioned before, why do we need to give them an iPhone or a Blackberry? isn't a 3310 Nokia will be enough as they just need to use it when it is necessity not for other intentions.

yes miss salinah. martial arts are really beneficial but I'm not sure whether children will remember all the skills taught in the martial arts taken because when something unexpected came, we will most probably shout or run away from the dangers.

well, a question came up to my mind. how come you can immediately seek the school officer which is most probably happen to be far away from the school compound? so in this case, mr. syahmie, I totally disagree with you.

last but not least, hani's spoke out that the girl wouldn't has much time to use the mobile phone but I guess in the 3310 Nokia, there's the speed dial application which may helped the girl.

I'd like to add one thing. we have to think it in a positive anyway as children can develop some kind of independence at an early age with the mobile phones. Thank you.

Yes, i agree that handphones can be a bit distracting, however its for the children's safety i suppose! For example, if something were to happen (godforbid) at least parents would be the first person the child would call, or if a stranger tried to pick them up at the bus stop then they can call 911 immediately. Futhermore,now a days you need your phone to communicate. If you child doesn't have a phone how would you know where they are..that's one reason! Sometimes the office or teacher wont let the students use the phone not only that but what if its before or after school..like your child is on the street alone..you need to know if he/she is good?

Yes, i agree but phone can also be use for other emergences such as, students can contact their parents when they have forgotten something at home or have forgotten to tell them something. Students can also reach their friends to ask them a question about the homework if they missed an assignment or if they need notes. Student could also, inform the teacher why they were absent, if they did not come for class. (diyana)

sorry madam because I just read your blog.
In my opinion, children should not bring mobile-phones to school. The best reason is that, their study will be intrupt and their concentration in studying surely will decerease. The other reason is that, the mobile-phones cannot help them if something bad happen to them. They will have not enough time to call their parents if they are in dangers. For sure the bad people will take their mobile-phones. Other effects of bring mobile-phones in scool is that, the problem faces by the school if the mobile-phones of the students is missing. The parents will blame the teachers and this will cause a big problem between teachers and students parents. This will also interfere the process of teaching when the teacher have to do spotcheck.

salina@sally said...

Salam,Madam Zubaidah,
Based on the comments,i think that not only children but even adults could not get a chance to seek for any help with their mobile-phones when they are being attacked.The particular victim will definitely find a way to run and the most common way of seeking help is by screming for help.
Other than that,the best way to prevent the children from being a victim of social-ills are the parents should be extra concern on their children's safety especially when they go to school.For example,parents may arrange a trustworthy transportation for their kids to go to school by fetching them on time as well as getting them back home on time.
Thus,it will be better if the parents themselves take the responsibility to fetch their kids to school and vice versa.
I also think that children who are having mobile-phones while their off to school will be facing more danger as strangers out there may attack them for their mobile-phones.Thank You.

Rai~Nad~Emma~Syu said...

salam. i concur to all who agreed on children bringing phones to school. i personally feel that children should bring handphones to school, because it is easier for them to communicate with parents and vice versa. in this case, emergency numbers are easier and faster for them to dial using their phones. emergency cases such as rape, gansterism, or even a fire could be halted.

for instance, if there is a fire somewhere in the school compound, and not many people are around. so, u just shout and shout for help? with a phone in hand, the child could call the fire department there and then. he/she doesnt have to shout and run and hope to find a teacher or an adult with a phone.

other than that , if a child needs to tell a parent that he/she may run late or vice versa,it would be handy to have a personal phone. children cannot depend on their school's public phone mainly because there is a high chance it is out of order. this happened to me a few years back. just imagine if the parents cannot pick them up at the usual time and they cant tell their children, the children would wait and wait and wait at the school wondering where their parents are. this would expose children to other mishaps as the number of people at the school compund decrease every minute.

for the usual worry that the children will not concentrate in classes is entirely on their hands. if they want the knowledge, they will take steps to gain them. they will learn by themselves if they do not concentrate, their results will drop.

thus, i totally agree with the idea of children bringing phones to school. thank you. - raihan

salam..i agree with salina@ sally..when someone being attacked,they have no time to use their handphones..if they try to do so,maybe the criminals will seized their handphones..so theres no point to use handphones..in addition,childrens dont know how to use the handphones correctly and in emergency case..maybe they know but time not waiting for them..the most important that should be realised by everyone is the parents responsibility towards their childrens..parents must make sure that their childrens go to school and vice versa in safety way..it will be better if the parents can send their childrens by their own..this will show their concern and the childrens will feel safe to go out..many of my points seem similar with salina@sally because what she think same with me..sorry madam because i'm late to responds with this hot issue..thank you(kucai)

salam..i totally disagree with raihan..there are numerous reasons why the children should not be equipped with mobile-phone when going to school..
first and foremost,the children will not pay attention during the classes.they will spend that time by chatting and playing games with their mobile-phone.thus,it will affects their studies.
next,by bringing the mobile-phone,the social issues with increase from time to time.for instance,the children are free to do anything that they did not know it is a sin.nowadays,as we can seen,the numbers of social problems among the children are increasing from year to year.if we think deeply,this problems are the causes of giving the children a mobile-phone.
so,it is better for the parents to take the responsibilities to avoid the children of bring the mobile-phone to school.it is OK to buy the children a mobile-phone,but the parents must be aware how their children make use of the mobile-phones.by the way, it is better by them a story book than a mobile-phone..tq ( ain )

~DibA~LinA~aIn~izzaTi~WahiDa~ said...

salam... i agree with ain.. children should not be equipped with mobile phone when going to school because they will always listening to music and playing games..so, they cannot focus on what they study in class.. besides that, mobile phone can be theft if they do not take care of it well..if the children have lost their mobile phone, their parents will angry to them.. sometimes, their parents will blame the teachers because do not take any action for this incident.. i think it will be better if children do not bring their mobile phone to school or during school hours.. thank you.(wahida)

~DibA~LinA~aIn~izzaTi~WahiDa~ said...

salam..i totally agree with both wahida and ain.Children should not be equipped with mobile phone as they can easily influenced by the device.Children intend to use the phone during the class session and do not give full attention during the lesson.This will affect their learning process and also give impact to their examination result...i'm so sorry madam because i was late to respond to this discussion..(izzati)

hafisasha said...

I reckon that mobile phone is an important and necessary need for children nowadays. Plus it is very helpful but if it is used in wrong way, it will give impact to the children.So, I agree with Izzati and others that children should not be equipped with mobile phone unless they are guided by their parents.They should not bring mobile phone to school because they will absolutely cannot give full attention during school hours if they are busy with their hand phones.(syafiqah)
