Now a days, you can see people of all ages tapping away at their electronics. They are always using social media or other things, but most importantly, social media. According to “Teenage Social Media Butterflies May Not Be Such a Bad Idea” by Melissa Healy and “Antisocial Media” by Hilary Stout, They both talked about social media taking over the lives of children. They also describe how children cannot develop empathy for others or understand different emotions. How I feel about social media is that it is not good for children to use because it can affect them in the future.
Lingering Harm Posting a video online of a school fight may make students feel “cool”, but people are unaware of the lingering harm they truly do. Schools all around the country try to reprimand the student that is the attacker, but just recently they have begun to come aware of another threat, the person filming, and posting the video online. These actions must be watched carefully, and be brought to an end, as they only have consequences that harm students to a greater level. Having over 1 million views may make posting a video of a school fight online seem like a perfectly fine thing to do, but these same videos bring unwanted attention and escalate the issue. An example of this issue is when two boys at Calvert
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.
With plenty of ethos support, Smith stated, “There are indirect changes in how children think and feel about things.” This article also strongly addressed opposing views. There is a lack in positive studies about physical punishment but hundreds of studies with negative outcomes. There are other effective ways to discipline children without being physical. Parents should talk with their children about appropriate means of resolving conflicts, Gershoff says. Building a trusting relationship can help children believe that discipline isn’t arbitrary or done out of anger.

Some people, parents for instance, value the use of internet and book censorship to shelter children from information that may influence them negatively; others see censorship as an obstacle in obtaining information for research purposes. In addition, the article, “Book Banning in U.S. Classrooms and Libraries” by Michael Winerip, states that banning has created a barrier around sources of information, often due to complaints by those that believe the content is inappropriate or obscene. Furthermore, the article “Sex, Politics and the Banned Books of 2016” by Christine Hauser reveals books that have been banned for deemed inappropriate content, much of which can affect the lives of teens negatively. Henceforth, censorship should only be justified to protect people from violent, harmful, and otherwise confidential content that puts them in danger.
Ken Kesey’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, which contains multiple issues that are unsuitable for adolescent readers, should remain available. In order to understand the hypocrisy of the situation, one must identify and acknowledge other aspects of the modern American society. Children entertain themselves with inappropriate television shows and video games. Social media and the News supply direct visuals of graphic content to the public, yet, concerned parents insist the true danger lies within literary classics which supply the readers with valuable insight. Also, fictional masterpieces such as One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest offer mental benefits through reading.
I love the fact that they are doing analyses because this proves that they are harming children but taking parents.

When bullying occurs in all the schools. People are so cold hearted that bulling, a student for not having his parents is most likely to
However, it is still a widely used disciplinary strategy by parents. A parent may question this meta-analysis based on his or her own reasoning that if spanking is as detrimental as the research claims, then why is used commonly across cultures. Parents associate spanking with more immediate compliance from their children and therefore continue to use it without knowing the long-term effects it will have on children. In addition to research that proves spanking is detrimental to children, there is research that claims physical punishment is effective under certain circumstances. This research leads parents to believe that spanking does not have negative effects which is not accurate.
