A lot of pocket money because it distracts  the students from concentrating and start breaking all the rules of the school like escaping from school to go partying and also bragging around those that don’t have as much.

I think students should be given their freedom. However parents should nurture their children in a way that they know how to balance education with luxuries or pleasure. In other words parents should train their children to do the right thing at the right time and in the right place.

Mobile phones and very expensive clothes, this makes those less privileged to yearn for them in a bad way and the end result is the students end up with  sugar mummies  and sugar daddies who give them these items in exchange for sex.

But also phones distract students from classes and might dwell in things like bad deals such as going to night clubs or even plotting worse things.

Students should not be allowed to go to school with radios and mobile phones because they distract them a lot and in turn affect their performances. You find a student paying more attention to the phone or radio than books and also end up indulging in bad behaviour because of external communication and influence that can lead to unwanted pregnancies and dropping out of school.

Too much pocket money is an issue for me; I think there should be a standard amount of money given to students while going back to school because those with a lot of money dodge school meals and also engage in illegal activities. Parents should give their children just enough money to help them buy basics like pens, books but not to just spend lavishly which also tempts those who don’t have to steal or go for sugar daddies and mummies.
