Imagine your parents watching your every move, whether it’s telling your best friend your deepest secret, or talking to your crush, how would you feel? I wouldn’t like my parents being nosy, If I wanted them to know I’d tell them! In his article, “The Undercover Parent,” Harlan Coben makes the argument that parental monitoring spyware should be used by parents. If you’re a parent, living with children or teenagers in the 21st century, then you need to do your research on monitoring spyware. If your next question is “what is spyware?” Monitoring software, otherwise known as spyware, is a program that can be downloaded to your electronic devices and allows you to monitor all activities on specific cell phones or tablets.
In Eric Schlosser‘s essays, the author shows how the social media are targeting children by their ads and advertisements. He exposes the negative side of advertising especially when children are implicated. The author explores children’s cooperation with these companies whether consciously or unconsciously through their behavior and ways of convincing their parents to get them what they want. He mentions how these same parents by lack of spending enough time with kids pamper them and don’t refuse their desires. Schlosser gives more explanations by introducing several examples of these companies such as Disney, McDonald, clothes, oil, and phone companies, too without openly blaming neither of them.
The optimal column to showcase this strategy is in "Parents: Save A Kid Brain - Get Off Your Phones!" Since the audience for this piece is parents of small children, one of the most effective strategies to persuade them is to logically show how their current actions may have a bad influence on their children. In this piece, Cepeda does just that to convince readers that their technology addiction is more serious than they thought by bringing in scientific and psychological research. By way of illustration, she includes two separate studies and discusses their results that technology negatively impacts child development and how these studies apply to the lives of the readers. Citing two separate studies allows Cepeda to rely more on the facts persuading her readers than her own opinions.
In Harlan Coben’s The Undercover Parent, Coben brings up the topic of parents installing spyware on their children’s computer. Although Coben was a little iffy about this subject at first, he now thinks it is a good idea because it could help make parents more aware of what is going on, protect children from talking to pedophiles, and cyberbullying. Many matters are mentioned by Coben, but in his argument he overlooks several aspects, and fails to elaborate on certain

Olga Khazan recommends an alternative to a typically unmentionable topic, how parents choose to punish their children for problem behavior, with intentions of informing and persuading said parents on how to more successfully achieve desired behavior from their children. Khazan initially highlights the issue he endorses by posing the question “The answer is to punish them, right?” and then introducing Alan Kazdin by stating, “Not so, says Alan Kazdin … Punishment might make you feel better, but it won’t change the kid’s behavior” (Khazan paragraph 1). Khazan obviously strives to solve humanities problem of disobedience. Khazan interviews Alan Kazdin for more insight on the proclamation. Interviewing Kazdin specifically, Director of the Yale Parenting Center, Khazan establishes Kazdin’s qualification for being able to make such acclamations and
Spanking can also be used to stop kids from doing something shouldn’t be doing or stopping them from doing something dangerous that can potentially harm them. A good spank will snap the child back into reality, the child will know why he/she got spanked and will be too afraid to do it again; however spanking should be used as a last resort when all fails. Children are supposed to respect and obey their parents and it is the parents’ duty to take charge and make sure that their doing just that. However we all know that that isn’t always trust. Some time talking or taking away their cell phone might not always be that effective.
As the factors of tantrums among children had been identified, it is easier to find the solution to this problem. However, it should be agreed that the solutions vary for each children.

I truly agree with the author’s perspective on this issue. Take for instance if you have children or young siblings. Let’s say that someone misinterprets something they said about them and will listen and rely on those rumors. Now this kid is enraged at your son or sibling and he is looking forward to beat him up. Now in those cases is where people tend to defend non-violent solutions.
