I. INTRODUCTION
We all know that most of the teenagers were aware with cellphone addiction. Maybe all of them are victims of it. They are getting too much addicted to it because it is enjoying, relaxing, and you can search more friends by texting them without the knowledge of their number. Cellphone addiction is one of the problems of parents among their children because they got failing grades in school. They cannot study because they always holding their cellphones just to text with their friends. Another problem is you will be stress because you will stay up late at night just because you are too addicted to it and you cannot help it. This can cause of having a cancer because of its radiation. It will not help them in building their dreams but a nightmare. Researchers are hoping that they will not be a victim of it so that it will not take them to something that they did not expect. It is entitled “The Implication of cellphone on the Study Habit of Students” and was conducted to know the reasons why they are addicted on using their cellphones. Their parents are affected on their behavior because they are having a problem with regards to their grades at school that will start their arguments. Most of them got failing grades because they are not studying. They cannot do their household chores because they are busy in texting their friends. They are fond of chatting and texting and sometimes they forgot their real tasks at home and in school. Even though they did not intend to forget them, some says that they are really doing not want to do their jobs and then it will cause the arguments between them. The teenagers knows that they’re doings was wrong and they should correct their misbehavior. According to [1]John Dewey, his main theory of education is often summed up in the phrase “learning by doing.” Until his time, most educators believed in the strict, traditional theories of education practiced in Europe. Many lessons were learned by heart. Students were often taught subjects that they would never use and in which they had little interest. Dewey sought to replace these old methods. “Education,” he said, “is a process of living.” The student must learn to grow and change in a changing world. He believed that education should prepare children to take part in a democratic society. This research may help us to understand what will be the consequences of rapid development in our society especially for those teenagers that will get addicted to it. Cellphone addiction is the most undeniably situation that affects the study habit among the teenagers. It is one of the problems of the parents with their children’s behavior.
