Cell phones have taken over the lives of our children. No longer do they know how to communicate as we used to do. Human interaction has been reduced to the pitiful level of texting where even correct grammar and spelling has been dispensed with.  Our children walk through the streets like zombies, staring trancelike into the tiny electronic gods we bought for them, oblivious to the danger of traffic all around. Their phones are gateways to the more unpleasant aspects of the internet and they use their cell phones to engage in liaisons with potentially unsavory people that otherwise they would have no access to.  All we want are schools to start installing electronic devices called 'cell phone detectors' such as Starport or Cellbusters within their buildings to control the use of cell phones within schools, and therefore pass over to our children the valuable educative message that either they, our children can dominate technology, or technology will ultimately dominate them! 

We the undersigned respectfully request that you begin to take all due responsibility for the proliferation of unrestricted cellphone usage by our children.  At home we are doing our bit.  At school, please act to reduce and control the use of cellphones by our children and at least educate them to understand that at certain times and places, the use of cellphones is socially unacceptable.
