If only there was some sort of supervisory figure in their lives, an adult who could make sensible decisions like revoking the privilege of owning a cell phone if they did something inappropriate or even not giving a completely unnecessary device like a phone to children.
Think about it. If we were to introduce this system, these adults could do all sorts of things like keep an eye on the internet content these children are viewing and make sure that IM or text messages were age appropriate.
Some might think the cost of placing an adult with every family is prohibitively expensive, but you could make it worthwhile by expanding their responsibilities. You could have adults that do things like teach children how to behave in public or teach them to treat other people with respect. They could take on responsibilities like making sure these children learn a work ethic by doing things like homework and chores. They might even solve the problem of children playing adult video games underage thus taking away the need to prosecute video game store employees.
I know, you're all thinking where on earth could we find adults willing to do these tasks and even if we could, there probably isn't any incentive for them to do the job very well anyway if we can't afford to pay them. At least not if adults are anything like the children we want them to look after, which of course they soon will be.
One thing we can be proud of though, is that we've successfully taught our children they aren't responsible for anything they do, don't have to do anything they don't want to and if there isn't some sort of material reward, no need for them to do anything for anyone else.
Think about a world run by people with that kind of mindset, it's almost the ideal utopia of self absorbed free will. No, it isn't just a dream, we're on the verge of making this a truly awesome reality. Wonderful.
