Screen time was once seen as something that people could use to make sure they weren't on their phones too much, but now its something that parents use to restrict kids and teens from using almost anything on their phones. Parents are able to block apps, put time limits on apps, disable the ability to change your own passwords, and many other things along with the fact that they can put a restriction passcode so you cant change anything unless you know the passcode. Yes, many people might think that teens need these restrictions or else they would be on their phones day, but that is not always the case. I am a teen with many screen time limits on my phone, and my parents always tell me that they put them because they don't trust me and they don't want me to be on my phone all day, but what they don't realize is that they never gave me a chance to show that I really am responsible enough to not have so many limits and not be on my phone all day. Many parents do this and they don't realize that they are ruining their relationship with us because they make us feel like we aren't good enough because they don't trust us. Screen time doesn't allow teens to be able to feel like they have freedom and be able to make their own decisions. I know that screen time might seem like a benefit to many adults and parents but imagine if you were a teenager during this time period and you could only talk to your friend for 30 minutes a day, not be able to have access to your phone after 9:00, and feel like you were restricted from so many things and this effected you and your parents relationship. Without screen time, teens would be able to feel like they aren't so controlled by their parents and they would be able to learn how to be responsible with their phone before they leave the house for college.
