Also, the comment about not allowing youth the use the "mobile device" to access the Scriptures in class was a great thought, one I had never thought of.
Oooh, read his handbook, did he? It happens.
I am familiar with a ward that posts the program online and then leaves a few printed program near the door for those who do not have electronic access. They want the youth to be able to access the program as well, so they spend a small amount of time in youth classes teaching correct principles.
I have found that trying to disallow youth from using mobile devices is a lost cause. We have found success in teaching them what they should be doing with their devices. There will always be the disobedient (a trait not reserved for youth) but, by and large, they respond to the challenge to do what is right and step up to living the correct principles they are being taught.
