Can You Get Arrested for Making a Phone Call?

consequences for making annoying calls

Cell phones have made communication very easy since their creation. Before, the only times when people could use phones were when they found one mounted to a wall. Nowadays, everyone walks around with a phone in their pockets. Staying in touch with loved ones has never been easier.

Unfortunately, there is a drawback to this. Not only is it easier for a person to contact whoever they want, it is easier for others to reach that particular person. This is both a blessing and a curse. Just ask anyone who has ever found themselves in the unfortunate position of having their phone number on a telemarketer’s list.

How Can We Get Rid of Bullying?

how to protect your child from a bully

Bullying in schools and online is a very important issue and topic of conversation. Just ask anyone, and they will tell you that bullying needs to be eradicated.

opening door safety

The front door to a home is a portal to safety for many people. Once a person is home, they no longer have to worry about people or the outside world. They are in their own personal kingdom. They make the rules, and get to do whatever they want. A person’s home is their sanctuary, which is why people are often very selective of who they allow through the front door.

Exhausted homeowners may not want to deal with whoever may be knocking on their door. While rare, it could be a pushy salesperson trying to sell some product that the person doesn’t want or need. Dealing with that is not fun. However, maybe the person’s child may want to open the door. At what age should a child be allowed to do that?
