For instance, do not let them get online in a private room, such as their bedroom, so it will be easier to keep an eye on their activity. Furthermore, it is important to build trust with children and teenagers regarding being responsible for using the internet safely (Raising Children Network 2012, p2). Thus, parents should draw a strict line between what children can do and cannot do, and there can be a reward for them if they are obey the rule. It is believed that the internet may bring many unexpected risks. Children and teenagers could meet strangers online and may even experience abuse, such as bullying and paedophiles, in chat rooms (Raising Children Network 2012, p4).

(7.2) Describe the ways of reducing risk to children and young people from: * Social networking * Internet * Buying online * Using a mobile Ways of reducing the risk to children and young people from using, social networking sites, we need to have more heightened public, awareness also private, advice given via the CEOP organisation, of the dangers. Children can sometimes be unaware of this controversial area. They need to be taught not to give out personal info such as telephone numbers as well as their emails addresses, as their information can be pieced together to make a fuller profile of themselves, which can be used against them, to gain their trust and confidence to be possibly be groomed or even worse taken (snatched) .
However, the documentary fails to acknowledge how the internet has helped kids by providing ways to find answers and acquire research and knowledge. Instead of exploring all the negatives found from the internet and kids growing up with the internet, the positives should also be discovered. The Frontline documentary also revealed that the internet has allowed kids to escape reality by having a “life” online. The internet helps kids express themselves through websites like MySpace, Facebook and blogs. The documentary goes on about how by letting the students have a life outside of reality can cause kids to have insecurity issues and have negative images for themselves.

To prevent these parents should be more vigilant and monitor their children’s access to the web. I would suggest children under the age of 14 shouldn’t be allowed to have internet facilities in their bedroom. More significantly there are parental controls on their computer that should be enabled. In my opinion Schools also have a vital part to play for example assemblies could be used to demonstrate and explain the potential dangers that some students could experience while browsing the web and safety in general. Statistics show that 60% of teenagers are exposed to some sort of cyber bulling.
Amy Goldwasser’s, “What’s the Matter with Kids Today?” uses out of context statistics to create a cynical attack on some of the finest educational organizations today. She scoffs at accusations of the Internet, almost ignoring the fact that most teenagers do not use the Internet for academic or intellectual uses. After begging parents not to worry about their kids online (even though worrying is what protects our kids to begin with), she groups Common Core with the other contributors “of what has become a fashionable segment of the population to bash: the American teenager,” when unlike the uninformed, Common Core is fighting for our school systems to improve the educational system for our teenagers (Goldwasser, 236). If one of our most influential associations was not enough, the National Endowment for the Arts is beaten down with more out of context quotes used to side the reader with the Internet and against our helpful companion in the fight for ingenuity and innovative improvement. RWS 200 students will find Goldwasser’s article much less persuasive after understanding how the sources she uses, like Common Core and the NEA, are taken out of context in her whirl-winding assault against educational learning, and supporting the Internet.
If the law is changed, eighteen year olds will substitute the first year driving statistics for sixteen year olds. The same amount of accidents will still occur, only the age will change. All first year drivers need time to practice driving skills or there will never be time to learn. It’s better to have a sixteen year old getting this practice while closer to home, then an eighteen year old getting the practice while they are away at college. Hang It Up Assignment: Write an essay in which you argue for or against prohibiting cell phones in school.
Growing up online produced and directed by Rachel Dretzing discuss the disadvantages and the advantages of children’s. Having the open access to internet has caused some problems at home, school, social media as well as bulling.

As a mentioned before this has brought different results on people and I will explain in more detail. Internet at home has help children’s to have a completely different personality while using the internet.

They are anti-social electronics.Students will sit around on their phones and not cominicate with the people around them.If students are always on their phones, they would not be as good at communicating with others.Social skills are an important aspect of life.Being social at school is important for friendships and life skills in general.
