I agree when Coben says “Trust is one thing, but surrendering parental responsibility to a machine that allows the entire world access to your home borders on negligence” (1). Because when you, as a parent, allow your child to do whatever he/she pleases to do, you begin to put your child in harm's way. Although allowing your child to do certain things without having to get parental permission, there are things that can be harmful to a child without the child thinking about it. Although spyware is a GREAT idea, don’t completely invade their privacy because they will get antsy and may resort to extreme measures to get around their parents' surveillance. Most teenagers find their time of seclusion when they are on their phones.
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.
For example, children do things because they know the consequences but they don't fully understand. According to the essay “Child soldiers: victims or perpetrators” the author states “At a young age it is often easy to become intimidated and children often don’t think of the bigger picture, in other words the consequences of their actions.” This means that child soldiers do things and don't think
The Undercover Parent, Argumentative Essay In Harlan Cobens article “The Undercover Parent”(2008) he gives many examples that can help you decide if parents should use spyware on their child or not. I agree with coben, because I feel if you know what your child's doing you can keep them from making the wrong choices. One of my examples to support my position is the article when coben says “you shouldn't monitor to find if your daughter's friend has a crush on kevin next door.
The foster care system is something that very few people have experience with. People believe that it 's the best possible option for children who are in abusive homes, but that 's not always the case. Various researchers have found that abuse and neglect still occurs in foster care. As the amount of research done on this topic increases, more and more people are trying to figure out ways to stop it such as better training for foster parents, focusing more on the child 's needs and outcries of abuse and conducting more research on the topic. Some abuse that occurs in foster homes happens because the parents are ill equipped to take care of a child with special needs or with more aggressive behavior.
Many people think that these games will not have a major impact in a student or teens life that teens will be more prepared to face the real world an all its dangerous. But I say that yes these games might teach kids that the real world isn 't always that safe but I believe that these games show kids to be violent and reckless. To conclude this is why many parents and government officials believe that kids should not be allowed to play violent role playing games. By not letting kids play these games we can prevent more horrible and tragic shooting involving
The fact that he was protecting Jasper, a teenage boy he only met nights before the mentioned quote, makes me wonder, was it right for Charlie to withhold this information? Charlie’s uneasiness to holding in the secret about Laura Wishart proves that secrets can slowly change a person from inside out. I have also felt the damaging nature of keeping a secret. Charlie may have had the right intentions to see Jasper’s side of the truth, before seeing where the case would lead to personally, however, I would have mentioned it to someone as I believe it is the right thing to do, unlike Charlie as at the end of the book no one found out and the cause of Laura’s death, as it was kept from the rest of the town.
The use of technology however is not the only thing similar to the brave new world. Well it’s not just the control that the apps allow us but what we do with the control in a social sense, and how continuing to use these services is leading to a trend of exclusion and shunning. When Huxley created the world within his novel he intentionally made the society seem ludicrous.
"I think as a parent I would feel uncomfortable if my daughter came home and said, 'My school is changing my personality, ' " Crede says this is berating Duckworth. By this Crede is denigrates grit is being over exaggerated and its being repetitive with things we already figured out.¨But, psychologists say conscientiousness isn 't a skill. It 's a trait — driven by some unknowable combination of genetics and environment. It can change, typically improving as children grow up, but it 's not necessarily amenable to direct instruction.¨This is evidence for the fact of it talks about the psychology behind grit and that it is no guaranteewe can precipitate. Also you can’t guarantee that they will be able to teach others and that’s how you’re
Reverse psychology can harm children if used incorrectly. Parents are known for the idea of reverse psychology with children. Reverse psychology is a form of discipline technique that is used often with other methods of disciplining children. However, not all parents are aware that they are using it incorrectly and implications that might affect their children while using reverse psychology. Some people do not realize that using reverse psychology is a technique of challenging a child and their ability to do a task.
I agree with Harlan Coben that parents should put Spyware on their child computer. Most won 't consider it because they say that they trust 100% their child. But? it won 't also hurt to put Spyware on their computer. A parent worries about their child at all time.
The audience is the parents and older people because their the one who take care of them. Well i agree that parents should get spyware for their child, but parents won 't even consider it. I agree that parents should get spyware and use it. Because if you haven 't gotten it you
Is privacy really important?Do kids have a choice?According to Harlan Coben teens and kids who have access to the internet should be monitored by parents or by spyware. I agree with Mr.Coben because we should know what teens or kids of today go on while not being monitored. Parents should monitor their kids use of the internet even with spyware. I think spyware is a good thing to be used on kids. According to Harlan Coben ignoring your kid is negligence cause then that shows your kid that they could do or go on anything without being caught.
Another Suggestion by them to relieve some of a parents concern is to “ask where medicines and cleaning products are stored and if they are locked.” These are a few of the suggestions they have to help parents to determine if a facility is safe enough for their child. (Step 3) There are a couple points that can lead someone to not view safety as such a big concern though. Some may think if you take safety too far then it will hinder the child from taking developmentally appropriate risks.
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.
