Akane: Mobile phones? Well, I mean, I think they be a good thing, I mean for safety reasons.
Akane: Yes if I was a parent I think I would feel knowing that my child had a mobile phone and I could get touch with them whenever I need to, and if something happens, like an , then they will be able to use the mobile phone.
Ruth: You see I would argue that they're quite actually, because children don't really have the best attention anyway, and often they could, for example, walk into the road they were talking on their mobile phone and generally not pay attention, so I don't think they're very .

Ruth: If I was a though I would not want my child to be phoning people left, right and because it would cost so much money.
Akane: Well you could be right about that. They do a lot of money.
Ruth: Oh, I'm glad you agree. Well, yeah, like at least we agree about now.
