It will then explain some of the advantages and why it should not be banned by parents. It has been argued that the freedom of children and teenagers to use the internet may lead them to experience serious problems by accessing inappropriate content (Raising Children Network 2012, p4). There will be a possibility for children to unintentionally click harmful sites that contain violence, videos of naked people and vulgar materials that can affect their mental development. However, parents can control children’s online activity to address this problem. 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.
Video games are not the source of violence but they are consistently blamed; parents need to make sure that their own children are not exposed to media hype that would be considered as violent or damaging to their own kids. The media truly believes they are the scapegoat for anything that goes wrong with today’s society. Today’s parents are naïve and ignorant to the fact that they do not know how to regulate the things their children watch and they cannot control their own kids behavior so they immediately point the blame on someone else. They need to teach their children good morals and show them how playing with guns can change their lives forever. People who own guns need to keep them put away and out of the reach of children.
One problem the internet caused stated in the documentary is, it is very hard for parents and authorities to regulate what kids do on the computer. Since the internet is so easy to access via new technologies, authoritative figures just cannot be present with the kids all the time. Another issue the internet has caused reported by the documentary is by it being so addictive, it has taken time away from studying, school work and activities such as reading. This is a problem because education is almost a must in today’s society. However, the documentary fails to acknowledge how the internet has helped kids by providing ways to find answers and acquire research and knowledge.
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.
Teens can be often tricky by telling the parents that they can trust them and they can be responsible in the result of getting their privacy. [Citation needed] Once that privilege is given, the child you knew before is not the same and once the privilege of privacy is given, it’s hard to take back because they’veRef?already lost control of their kids. [Citation needed] Teens should not have the right to privacy because of the danger of internet, drugs, alcohol, and also teenage pregnancy. To start with, the internet can play a dangerous role in teens’ lives. When a teen is given too much privacy, they tend to make plenty of mistakes involving the internet.
* Parents need to be role models for their children. If you, as a parent show responsibility about texting and driving, you will show our child that it is not ok. * Laws have been implemented in most states to ban cell phone use while driving. We have very serious laws against drinking and driving, and the consequence are very costly if caught behind the wheel while intoxicated. So we need to come up with better solutions to stop people from texting and driving. The information that I have in this report comes from my research that I have conducted through Keiser University Library.
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. Cyber-bullying is another problem that could occur.If the amount of time students are allowed to be on their phone increases, then students would be more likely to bully other students.During the school day, a victim of bullying would be less likely to report a situation,putting teens lives in danger.It could could cause a adversity for a family.Cyber-bullying is dangerous , and extra time given to students to be on their phones could just increase the amount of bullying that goes on.

The generation gap is the basis for the video “Growing up Online.” In this video children and adults were asked to give their opinions about the internet. Most adults specifically parents feared for the safety of their children from internet predators and cyberbullies. The children weren’t as concerned about that kind of stuff though, in fact they felt as if the internet was a wonderful use for school and socializing. The producers noticed something, that maybe the parents and the children felt but, didn’t realize. They noticed something called a generation gap.
Parents should regulate the amount of video games their children play because if your child regularly plays games with plots based on violence and aggression, research shows children at risk for increased aggressive behavior, it inhibits social interaction, and it is not always intellectually stimulating. First, parents, not government, need to monitor video games. Laws don't go far enough to help parents, argues Craig Anderson, a professor at Iowa State University: "The results are really quite clear; regardless of gender... regardless of culture... we know that playing violent videogames increases the likelihood of aggressive behavior and aggressive thinking, decreases the likelihood of pro-social behavior, and increases what you might think of as desensitization... Probably the best solution is to educate parents... but we also need to give parents better tools and the current rating systems don't do that." "One study reveals that young men who are habitually aggressive may be especially vulnerable to the aggression-enhancing effects of repeated exposure to violent games," said psychologists Craig A. Anderson, Ph.D., and Karen E. Dill, Ph.D. "The other study reveals that even a brief exposure to violent video games can
Jena Saucier 3/5/2013 Negatives of Love Online In today’s society, more people are choosing to find love over the internet, whether it be a dating website or Facebook. There are many negative consequences to looking for love online. Such as no visual communication, false identities and how much time it takes up from one’s personal life. One reason why people shouldn’t find love online is because you never really know is on the other side of the screen. There have been cases where teens meet people over the internet and have an online relationship, but when they end up meeting it isn’t exactly who they thought it would be.
