    Chrisland School Video: Don’t Buy Phones for Your Kids Until They Get to University, Pastor Ibiyeomie Says in Video

    The founder and head pastor of Salvation Ministries, Pastor David Ibiyeomie, has waded into the recent Chrisland issue involving minors and how bad parenting could be blamed.

    In a sermon reshared by Goldmyne, the clergyman said that no parent should buy their children a phone until the wards get to the university.

    I never gave my son a phone

    He said that it may be hard, but parents have got to stand their ground. Giving a personal example, he revealed that he stopped his son from using a phone until he got to a higher institution and he values that lesson today.

    Phone is a distraction to kids

    Pastor Ibiyeomie said that when a child is using a phone, it could be quite a distraction as many things pop up.

    He added that parents could install land phones in their homes for communication, arguing that the children could always use their parents’ mobile devices.
