I feel that Apple should take screen time off of the iPhone's. Parents are putting screen time on teens phones to "help with school" or "help with sleep" without the known fact that they figure out passwords or have people to help because they have stuff going on in their life. First of all, if teens find out the pass codes, why even have it, it's no use. They can change the code or their screen times. Also, people struggle day and night, whether it's suicidal thoughts or personal issues. We can't control what other people do but we can be there for them. With having screen time on our phone whats that going to do? One, we can't get our mind off of what could possibly be going on. And two, we can sleep easier, and better, knowing are friend is safe and/or doing better from the situation they are in. And three, what if we are their only friend that they trust and we aren't answering, we don't know what could happen in that.  Also, for the kids doing virtual school and have screen time during school hours, what happens when their laptop randomly breaks, and they can't contact anybody or use their phones for classes? Nothing, they can get a poor attendance grade and will be lost on what happened that day. To include, sometimes when we are upset we go to social media for help. Not specifically everyone on an application, but their closest friends. So when it is the middle of the night and they have nobody to talk to all they're going to do is sit their alone, but yet parents say "If you need to talk to somebody, do it." What are we supposed to do in that situation? In addition, the sleep is the kid's fault. I feel parent's should understand that if a kid is tired because they were up late on their phone, that is the child's fault, if they can't make it through a school day and fail because they were sleeping during their class that's on them. But screen time should be taken just because the child was not smart and stayed up late. To add on, failing grades have nothing to do with them being on their phone, it has to do with their level of focus and the work completion and accuracy for that class. Sometimes parents blame the phone on failing grades, when in reality, it's just hard for them to focus. If they do not complete the work it is not the phone's fault, it's the child's for focussing on things other than the work. Sometimes its family, sometimes friends, sometimes sports, and in some situations phone's. In conclusion, I think apple should take off screentime, downtime, app limits, time limits, content privacy, etc.
