Even if your child stops you and tells you they already know how to be safe online, don’t stop. Be sure to restate your point and establish any internet rules you would like your child to follow. It is important to remember that many teenagers think they know everything, but many don’t. For example, your child may know that there are internet predators out there, but do they also know that pictures of them smoking or drinking underage could get them suspended from school or even arrested, no matter how “cool,” they look on a MySpace
Harlan Coben’s editorial article “The Undercover Parent” (March 16,2008) suggests that putting spyware on your child’s computer is a good idea. Throughout the article Coben supports his thesis by first telling a short story, then listing different counterarguments throughout his paragraphs. Coben says that “Most parents won’t even consider it.” I agree with most of his points, but also disagree with a few. Here is my response.
But rather, the show should be viewed as a typical silly and harmless internet cartoon. The parents should discuss with their children about the entertainment they view on a daily basis should not influence their conduct or actions. Furthermore, if parents are truly concerned about their children discovering this type of content, they can take further action to censor these websites by setting a restriction and blocking them. There are many solutions to combat this alleged issue, and Ellison was very narrow minded throughout her argument. She did not defend her claim
Generation Amy Goldwasser’s article “What’s the Matter with Kids Today?” has argues that the internet has a positive effect on today’s youth in response to the older generation’s blame that the internet irresponsible for the decline in kids actually reading literature. Goldwasser gives examples on how the internet’s impact has greatly affected today’s youth as opposed to the older generation’s views: Kids today read and write on their own free will via social networks, blogs, etc. They have instant access to information on any historical event or literature in their possession, and how the youth influence our everyday life thru the internet. I agree with Goldwasser in saying that the internet has a more positive influence on today’s youth
While we have discussed the pros and positive effect that technology has had on education, now we will discuss a few cons as well. As technology – based information has had a profound effect on the way people can now educate themselves, the latter also had its demerits. Like most great advancements in modern technology, the internet’s purposes have been altered and are being used for nefarious acts such as plagiarism, invasion of privacy and content theft leading to academic dishonesty in the realm of education. Plagiarism is nothing new to the academic society, as nowadays students tend to ‘copy and paste’ from the internet in order to either please the teacher or to get rid of the assigned work. Furthermore, technology such as the internet has now created opportunities for students to become better cheaters and to digitally copy information from web based sources resulting in new challenges for the educators.
Technology! You don 't have the foggiest idea about what 's behind it. In The Veldt, Bradbury demonstrates the perusers how innovation can be unsafe that can prompt contempt and frailty among the relatives which will prompt not believe each other. He likewise talked about in his book that the youngsters are ruined and the guardians are simply complying with their kids ' requests and the guardians need to change how their kids are acting, however, the kids detested them for what they are attempting to do.
Anthony B. Shumate ENG-112 January 22, 2018 Jon Thomas God’s Eye Parents: all you have ever done is raise your children; however, you may say we cannot control what our children see or hear, which may be true. Harlan Coben’s “The Undercover Parent,” targets the battle between parenthood and childhood, trust, privacy, protection, and overprotection. The world can be a scary place, but the Internet can be scarier. On the Internet, anyone can put anything they want; for example, criminals are online and doing bad things for anyone to see including your children.
The fact that social media platforms allow teenagers to communicate indirectly only makes it easier to be cruel to others. Psychologist Dr. Donna Wick mentioned that teenagers text all sorts of things that many people would never contemplate saying to anyone’s face. They judge other people’s looks and lives. They post hurtful and mean comments; moreover, they also spread false rumors. This will mentally hurt the bullying victim.
In my opinion, forcing people to use their real name on social networking sites would be a good start because cyberbullies very seldom use their real name as it is usually a false identity making it harder for the victim to identify who the bully is. Also, I believe that teachers should be able to do everything they can to help prevent this issue. I think that teachers should hold a lesson about understanding how cyberbullying can affect a person, and the difference between cyberbullying and making jokes. This can help because then kids and teenagers will learn how to act online leading to less people being cyberbullied. Also, they should teach how the children should act online.

Pathos or emotion, when he is trying to get his audience to realize that with all the shortcuts that can so easily be taken with online education America will eventually become ignorant in the long run if it continues. By expressing this Spring is trying to scare people into changing their ways for the better future. For ethos or appealing to the ethics of people, he uses the example of cheating as a moral. This is a rule of society that many people break, none of which would ever willingly admit to it but everyone knows it is wrong. Spring points out how cheating is so effortless with online learning and how the temptation is always there.
Carr’s argument that the internet is making us stupid is very easy to argue when thinking about all the resources we have today. For example like wikipedia, online schooling and even online college courses all things allowed by the web. Many people use wikipedia to help them learn about an unknown subject that will help them gain more information. The internet allows us to learn more about particular subjects, giving us more knowledge and making us feel less stupid. What people fail to realize is that although the internet has an endless amount of information, we the users don 't try to access all of it.
Parents Vs. Internet In the article “ The Undercover Parent,” Coben talks about how parents should monitor their kids. He goes on about the benefits and disadvantages of using spyware by using anecdotes and counterclaims. Coben seems to argue that parents should definitely monitor their kids but he never seems to agree with parents using spyware on an everyday basis.
Helping children and youth to consume age appropriate information will make them more mature adults, emotionally and intellectually. Children today are exposed to inappropriate information on the internet. This information is too mature for their age, and youths are often exposed to sexual content before leaving middle school. This can have negative effects on their emotional maturity. Children have access to internet all the time with phones, computers and tablets.
Another example is when George finally completely turns off the house, the children and even the parents refer to it as “dead” and “been killed”. So, these are some horrible effects that the children and the parents experience from being surrounded by too much technology. They have let it control their lives. A possible counter claim to this idea is that the theme of Ray Bradbury’s “The Veldt” is actually about family.
