From my own personal experience, I think adolescents, as they grow older, eventually start to find their own identity, relationships, and groups goes hand in hand with their ability to separate from their parents. They want to be independent and start doing their own thing. What better place to start doing it than the internet, considering that a lot of parents seem to be computer illiterate. The fascinating thing about the internet is that, it’s a place where adolescents feel like they can fulfill their needs of a pioneering, adventurous spirit. One of the many reasons why the internet is so enticing is because; they can meet new people, explore the world, and do exciting things on it.
Difficulty with reading and writing If a child is having problems with reading and writing this could cause concern.

Children are meeting sexual predators on the internet and forming relationships with them and unknowingly allowing them into their lives. Parents must talk to their children about the dangers of the internet. Technology is a great learning tool for them and they will be far more advanced than we were as children, but it also opens the door for unwanted predators who will take advantage of children.

You can often look on the internet and find video after video of the abuse and neglect that goes on in daycares.
Rachel Reine English 101 Section 4 February 19, 2012 Internet Use in Teenagers In response to the new generation’s use of internet and lack of reading classic books, Amy Goldwasser defends the teenage reputation in her article “What’s the Matter with Kids Today?” Goldwasser speaks of how the internet has expanded kids’ minds when it comes to school and themselves, also how this generation has more access than older generations due to the internet. Goldwasser claims that teenagers spending time online is overall good for them because they do read and write. The content, however, is not strong enough for educational purposes. A blog post about how to curl hair or how to pass the perfect spiral is not giving them any educational value. Whereas reading the local newspaper or reading a classic novel like “The Great Gatsby” by F Scott Fitzgerald would provide a more intellectual purpose.
Tevin Hutchinson 11/10/2012 English 102 Technology plays a huge role in our everyday life. I do believe that technology has made our lives easier, but it also has made us more dependent on the technology itself. When using the internet for a dictionary you could easily get distracted.

During the last decade, the Internet enriched our social lives and our civic connections. People use e-mail, on-line chat rooms and instant messages to communicate with each other. Even adolescents can use the Internet as the same as the older people. But, heavy use of the Net can bring some bad consequences to the adolescents more than what they do on adults. Brent Staples, in “What Adolescents Miss When We Let Them Grow Up in Cyberspace” (2004) pointed out the consequences of adolescents cruising the Net.
In essence, Cyberbullying is the inappropriate use of a technological device to harass, degrade or defame another. Students and adults today, feel pressure from their peers to resolve issues without direct contact with their nemesis. Victimized persons exhibited emotional instability, low self-esteem and high levels of anxiety. Cyberbullying can be prevented by teaching netiquette, educational training in schools and educating teachers of symptoms that students might exhibit as a result of bullying. What is Sexting?
We do not call this behavior challenging because it summons you to a duel or battle but because it is threatening, provocative, and stimulating, all at the same time. Another website was csefel.vanderbuilt.edu/documents/reading_cues.org, and it was just more less the understanding of why challenging behaviors happens with young children. And the last website that I went to was csefel.vanderbilt.edu/resources/family.htm. This website was more for the families to read and get more of a understand and it gave some resources. If I was to have a challenging child in my class then I would was to involve the parents or caregivers and let them be on the same page as I am.
