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. I agree with Coben on how we have to be wary on what kids do online.
To the Editor: In the essay “The Undercover Parent” by Harlan Coben, the author calls the spyware on a child’s computer as “loving parents...doing the surveillance” and “not faceless bureaucrats” as a way to defend. But speaking as a person, who just quite recently went through those teenage years, I may not understand the perspective of a parent nor do I claim to. However, I do understand the big difference between Dick Cheney and a member of my family reading my messages but it doesn’t make the wound sting less. The government did it as a way of national defence, yet a lot of people felt like they were being violated; now having a parent download a spyware - that in most cases is meant for protection and hopefully the prevention of something
One of the big examples he used was how television has affected not only children but also the school system. Postman does not show both sides to his argument, but instead he goes straight into the burden that “television may bring a gradual end to careers of school teachers” because teacher were the first to invent the printing press (pg.3). Consequently, Postman then goes on to say that teachers are blind to this reality, losers, for not seeing of the negative outcome coming their way and instead seem to be enthusiastic toward this new
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. Therefore,Harlan Coben has found that some will say that it 's better just to use parental blocks.But the truth is parental blocks don 't work,people can easily change the parental
Because of the general public 's generalizations, geeks and nerds are segregated, and teased. We have to have kids who will need to be the following Albert Einstein. We need folks to comprehend their kids, when they would prefer not to play sports. We together as America need to bolster these high insight individuals, so they can help us later on. The main answer for this issue would be the counteractive action of hostile to intellectualism values that are diffusing over our nation, or we don 't stand a possibility of succeeding like
The child might have to face problems at home and they cannot do anything at home their point is not given importance or they cannot anything. They feel like they have no power. For some kids it might be a situation a lot of fighting in home , a close family member facing issue of drug addiction , parents getting divouce log in to their social media accounts to check what is posted today about their fellow friends and then they make fun of each and everything. People are aware that bullying hurt everyone and it is very difficult for the children to come out of the drama. So why shouldn’t parents teachers root cause of such a attitude, what kind of students are bullying other and why they feel the need to bully others.
The point-of-view also helps to convey the theme. While writing, Jackson put in sections where Laurie’s parents reacted to Charles and his actions. The short paragraph, “On Saturday I remarked to my husband, “Do you think kindergarten is too unsettling for Laurie? All this toughness, and bad grammar, and this Charles boy sounds like such a bad influence”, shows how Laurie’s actions are affecting the point-of-view of the story (74). This is because, with Laurie's intentions of not wanting to get in trouble, his mother believes in the untruthful stories about Charles.
Have you ever had an opinion on if child soldiers should have consequences on their actions or have u ever thought that it is not all their fault? Many people say the kids should be prosecuted because they know what they were doing while others think differently. I believe that it is not the kids fault, the first reason i think this is because when kids are kids they can’t tell grown ups what they want to do. The second reason i think that they should not be prosecuted is because while they are being recruited they get drugged. The last reason i think that kids should be set off free is because when the children are fighting they can be in serious danger.
So, they start to be violent because they don’t want to be a victim of violence. As parents, you should not compare your children’s each other because, each of them will have different interest and different talent. Voice had organized the talk by the counselor which will make the children to have a clear view of parent’s part of view on why they are comparing or forcing them to study. This talk will have two session where the counselor will talk about “how to prevent school violence” and “talk from part of parents view”. After than will have the next part of the part will we will have ice breaking and ask the children “how the feel about violence and their parents view”.
" I think schools should be able to continue and keep having tabs on students_Ñé social media to prevent internet bullying. While the student does not feel comfortable enough or safe enough to tell a teacher or someone else of authority they have access to, or comfortable enough to speak to of the problem what are they supposed to do. They can_Ñét just do nothing, action must be taken for these bullied students. I also agree with this because I have personally been in a particular situation where I have been cyber bullied and I really did want to tell my teachers and parents, but I was too nervous to say anything to anyone for quite a while. Then I did end up telling my parents and all they said was, _ÑÒSuck it up._Ñù I wanted to go and
