Valley Voices – Teen Edition

ST. JOHN VALLEY – The St. John Valley Times and the Fiddlehead Focus recently asked some St. John Valley teens: “Many adults think young people spend too much time on their cell phones. What do you think?”

Jade Cyr, Madawaska / Buckingham, Virginia: “I am mostly on my phone to listen to music.”

Desiree Dumais, Fort Kent: “I think that using it to communicate with people and going on it within reason is fine, but being on it 24/7 is a bit much and you should go out and get some sunshine.”

Isabelle Hodgkin, Madawaska: “Some of us are on too much. But my mom gets me out of the house a lot, and I leave my phone at home.”

Madison Nadeau, Madawaska: “Sometimes kids are on their phone, but only if there is nothing else to do.”

Emily Yankowsky, Frenchville: “It’s true. I’m on mine all the time. I’ll admit it.”
