" INTERNET CURSE OR BLESSING FOR TEENAGERS"
Internet has brought immense source of information closer to kids, the world seems like a global information sharing community, but all that information has robbed the kids of simple joys and innocence, not to mention brought about an era of cyber crimes or crimes against kids brought about with the help of internet....what do you think ....has it helped the kids or made them more vunerable to a new dark world.
let the debate begin....
Nice topic PJ04
i agree with Bas02. The internet, is a very useful thing. It can find information for the projects that kids have, and they can play games on the internet. i agree with Bas, when she said If extra caution is taken then one can avoid seeing the bad side of the internet. When kids are on the internet i think a parent should always be there, untill the person using the internet, knows how to avoid the "bad side of internet."
In my opinion, Parents make a big difference when it comes to safety for the kids or teens. Sure teens rebel and are not easy to control but parents who have constantly given time, care, discipline, and have shown love have respect from their teens. Respect enough that they listen just as I did and many of my friends. For us the Internet was safe because our parents took the time out to make it safe for us.
