A United Nations study shows that of the world’s estimated 7 billion people, 6 billion have access to mobile phones but only 4.5 billion have access to working toilets. That’s how popular this ubiquitous modern device has become. You can travel all over the world and observe the same scene: people using cell phones anywhere they are.
In fact, many kids in every major town or city in different parts of the world like Melbourne, the second most populous city in Australia, have their own mobile phones. The parents of these children have discovered the benefits of the latter using cell phones, as highlighted in an article by A. Elizabeth Freeman for Modern Mom. To wit:
Your child can call or text you on his cell phone when he needs to and you are able to
call or text him when needed, according to Anita Gurian, Ph.D. of the New York Univer-
sity Child Study Center. With a cell phone, your child will also have access to dialing
911 or another emergency number. When you give your child a phone, you can gain
peace of mind, according to Gurian. A few phones designed for children feature pre-
programmed text messages that your child can instantly send you to let you know of
his whereabouts or schedule, according to Herb Weisbaum of MSNBC.
Certainly, the ability to have constant contact with their children is among a number of reasons why parents provide mobile phones for their kids. This is why parents should seek immediate mobile phone repairs in Melbourne when something goes wrong with their children’s cell phones. It can be especially critical if they can’t provide a replacement unit right away.
Fortunately, there are many mobile phone specialists in Melbourne such as TelcoWorld Pty. Ltd. that can handle all brands and almost any kind of damage. These include water damage, screen repair or replacement, speaker and microphone replacment and many more. Kids can sometimes be careless with cell phone handling and damage to cell phones can be more frequent.
Truly, it may be worth the expense to provide cell phones for children. You’ll have no worries either for there are also many companies that can handle any kind of mobile phone repair in Melbourne.
