Although social media can be the number one activity on the web, the media is designed to be addictive. According to Immprovement Pill, "Social media gives you a false sense of accomplishment." This tells us that social media is an addictive source and can make you experience false things and feelings.

Not only has the internet helped people with connecting to family and friends, it has also made it easier for people to do research ad or look information up.

In the article “Excessive Homework Strains Family Life”, the author starts by writing about what students are missing out on due to homework; one topic she mentioned was exercise: “Kids who don 't have time for play and recreational activities, such as softball teams or dance, just don 't get to move around a lot—and there is evidence that exercise actually helps with academics” (Ponte n.pg.). Homework takes an exponential toll on students, which causes some to forfeit their sports in order to finish their assignments on time. In addition to losing the time for physical activity, being on sports teams allows children to learn social skills and meet new people. Instead, they are spending time by themselves completing their interminable homework assignments. Furthermore, in the article “Parents Should Take Action Against Excessive Homework”, Nancy Kalish continues writing about the inadequate amount of physical activity had by students and states that too much homework causes kids to miss out on playtime which is necessary for preventing childhood obesity (Kalish n.pg.).
In the essay, “Isolated by the Internet”, author Clifford Stoll explains that recent research, conducted by psychologists Robert Kraut and Vicki Lundmark, suggests that frequent use of the Internet has had a generally negative effect on the psychological well being of its users. Using examples from Kraut and Lundmark’s previously mentioned research, Stoll asks, “Will the proliferation of shallow, distant social ties make up for the loss of close local links?” The question Stoll raises here is entirely valid, and just as concerning; as the more time one spends online, the more time one subsequently spends alone, away from people he or she could be potentially interacting with. I believe Stoll’s concerns are completely justified as today, (falsely comforted by shallow, superficial relationships,
This is affecting there education and could possibly impact there SAT scores ,and maybe even not get them into a college they want to go to.

One study done states that 60% of kids between the ages of 7-12 feel tired at school. This is because of the lack of sleep.
Have you ever thought about why your kid is getting horrible grades? It is because your kid does not have enough study time because they are focused on the written homework. By giving too much written homework kids might not have the energy to study. With all the activities that kids participate in they might not have the time because by the time they get home from the activity it will be time to eat dinner and then they will go to bed. Besides kids should be learning not getting stressed.
Disturbing class is also becoming a large issue. As well as new and creative methods of cheating, described in further detail later. With the explosion of social media over the last half of a decade, cyberbullying has emerged and become a prominent issue.

They sit on their laptops way late in to the night playing games or just chatting with their friends. This, when continued for a long time eventually leads to insomnia. As proper sleep is essential for a good health, especially for children this condition becomes very harmful. It would affect the physical growth of the children, not to mention the effect this has on the mental health.

In recent years, the Internet has expanded to people all over the world giving them abilities to gain information on any region in the world. However, issues have arisen on the basis of pornographic exposure to children, censorship of material given to the people in the society by leaders of their country, and terrorist acts through the Internet. As a result, there is controversy as to whether censorship and control is needed to ensure that morals and ethics are still in place for children. Since the Internet can be seen as a portal that generates many complicated problems, parents feel as if the Internet should be controlled for their children. As the Internet increases and expands daily, new technology arrives and the government tries to
unfortunately in today’s world, constant connectivity poses a real risk. Viruses, spam, not to mention the hours wasted procrastinating and looking (stalking) through the photos of those you really shouldn’t.. Personal privacy has been lost. Fraud has a new channel, and many of us live in fear that our children are browsing, chatting or downloading from sites that pose a threat to them and/or our credit cards * Yes sadly, the internet has much darker side to it, a side which as we will see can inevitably opened us up to a tidal wave of danger. Approach We all need to protect ourselves and so the key to this spot is its universality.
