This is why I believe parents should not be able to check their teen’s social media accounts. I understand that parents are also concerned with their teens safety. We hear a lot about the dangers of the internet and sharing too much information through social media. But as teenagers, we are expected to be more responsible and deserve some privacy. Parents rummaging through their teens’ social media accounts may do more harm than good as it shows no trust.
This can lead into severe and even life threatening situations as the child begins to build a relationship with the person. Some predators will work their way into gaining trust before slowly introducing sexually explicit content in the conversations while others maybe faster and upfront with sexually explicit content. Many times, predators may record or make use of conversations to blackmail or harass a child. The most common stereotype of the online predator is a middle-aged man with no job who lives alone and whose day only consists of luring young children and teenagers through the Internet. Though this may be partly true, the real statistics are interesting.
For example Laurent B said that life online wasn’t always friendly, there were a lot of gossip. So using social networking and keeping in touch with friend online is the good thing, but they still have some trouble when the teenagers spend too much time. Response: According to Jan Farrington in “Online Friendship” research about the socials networking and connecting friends online. She explains more about the positive sides, but I think that they still have some negative sides. For example: In my country have a lot of place for rent computer to go online.
Exposure to media violence also may distort our understanding of the meaning of others behavior, predisposing us to view even no aggressive acts by others aggressive. According to some, you are what you watch when it comes to violence in the media and its influence on violent behavior in young people. A new paper provides additional evidence that violent media does indeed impact adolescent behavior. The research to be, published in February 2009 in the Journal of Youth and Adolescence, shows that even when other factors are considered, such as academic skills, encounters with community violence, or emotional problems, childhood and adolescent violent media preferences contributed significantly to the prediction of violence and general aggression. Paul Boxer, an assistant professor of psychology at Rutgers University in Newark, has been involved since 2004 in research funded by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) into media violence and its relation to serious youth violence and criminal behavior.
Are your Facebook friends more interesting than those you have in real life? Has high-speed Internet made you impatient with slow-speed children? Do you sometimes think about reaching for the fast-forward button, only to realize that life does not come with a remote control? If you answered yes to any of those questions, exposure to technology may be slowly reshaping your personality. Some experts believe excessive use of the Internet, cellphones and other technologies can cause us to become more impatient, impulsive, forgetful and even more narcissistic.
There are many famous people including Bauerlein himself were having an argument with another group of people on whether digital culture is an advantage or not. He backs up his opinion by saying “Together they form an imposing countervailing force, an alliance to slow the headlong rush to technologies learning, reading, writing, and intellectual life.” Bauerlein believes digital culture had cut of young adults’ understanding on literature and history because at this time, young adults would prefer to find answers on the Internet; therefore, reading also becomes a problem. Even though teenagers are willing to adapt the new learning style is an advantage for them; however, they should not abandon the old way of studying. Bauerlein said “If it doesn't happen in high school, in college and in home at this time, it probably never will.” Young adults should be aware of how to study when there aren’t any digital culture provided, on the other
Researchers have given that answer in their survey’s and facts that they have found. It is up to the parents to take the problem serious and listen to facts that are given. Many disagree with the idea that video games are harmful but cannot back their opinion up with actual evidence that they have found. The more children are exposed to violent video games, the higher the chance that they will have an increase in aggressive behavior. Violent video games give off the message that killing and violence is fun instead of bad.
However, in my own opinion, I believe that conformities exist amongst sex and password sharing but I cannot accredit them as good comparisons. Although, I agree that password sharing is not an acceptable action to be condoned, I find the illustration of sex to be on a different rank of importance. Through the use of perceptions accepted during teenage years, the author makes it apparent that in current time’s password sharing is a widely known phenomenon. Teenagers have always been exposed to peer-pressure and conformities so that they can “fit in,” but do not think in depth of the consequences that follow. Through the use of interviews with young students on the topic, Richtel verifies this occurrence to be true.
