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.
What 's the first thing that comes in your mind when your hear spyware ? In Harlan Cobens, article, “ The Undercover Parent”, this article is going to be about how parents are always checking on their kids. Coben, states out that people should get spyware is good for your child. They support thesis by saying that all this equipment is helpful for your child to make sure they 're not doing anything bad. The authors purpose is that to tell parents that spyware is helpful to make sure your child is ok. 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.
Digital Parenting “It is the uninvolved parent who has to resort to strictness.” -Andrea Bocelli. In this digital age, parents, instead of installing invasive software to monitor their children’s online activity, should develop open and trusting relationships with their children, as this is the best way to guard their kids against potential dangers and respect their kids privacy.
In Harlan Cobens news article “The Undercover Parent” (March 16 2008) suggests that parents of teenagers should be putting spyware to use on their computers.It had all began with the useage of spyware was brought up which had reppeled him but after he had done some research on it he had found out that it has many uses that can save your teeneagers life.In order to portray his claim on pro-spyware he had a couple of his friends over who put spyware on their kids computers and he had them tell him what they’ve found about their kids.
The reason behind this is that not all technology is bad because think of your kid using technology and actually learning something from it. In the Veldt the kids were able to learn things from the nursery. Kid in school use technology for work and is able to help them on certain projects an searches to help in their classes. According to this website Business Insider,http://www.businessinsider.com/silicon-valley-parents-raising-their -kids-tech-free “In many schools, children have been allowed to browse the internet for information – it’s incredible how many facts are at their fingertips when they sit down in front of a computer. Of course schools are still stressing the importance of books, but children can access information on the internet that the school might not have in their library,” states lb50.
In the article “Let Kids Run WIld Online” by Danah Boyd She is mainly talking about how parents should let their son or daughter use the internet without any surveillance. I get how the internet can be an easy way to encounter rapist ,terrorist ,sex offenders ,and what young people say “cat fish” in other words someone who pretends to be someone who they aren’t. There is a show on MTV where they find real people who have someone (catfish)who they try to investigate whether they might be legit or not. After the internet came out to a vast majority of people (around 2000’s)
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.
To do that, parents should start monitoring not only their kids technology, but their own as well. One of the most tremendous problems at home is parents are constantly are on technology which is almost like giving the ok for their kids to be on technology as well. Also kids are surrounded with technology everywhere they go, especially at school. Teachers are giving so many assignments on the computer, so students have no choice whether to be on technology or not. Students have to be on technology for their school work and tests.
That being said, the internet could be a very dangerous thing for children to discover. The internet has many uses and can teach us many great things but letting children use it can lead to bad things, such as changes in attitude, thought process and general health conditions. It could corrupt their minds in ways that may not be suitable for the youth. An example of negative access to the internet would have to violence.
Around 72% of parents say that they feel as if they have a good handle on technology and they are a good role model for their child when it comes to using it (Stress in America, 2017). Six in ten of those parent admitted that they were also “glued” to their phones as well, or constantly checking emails (Stress in America, 2017). Most parents, ninety four percent state that they take at least one action to help their children from being addicted to technology (Stress in America, 2017). They say they feel as if they are failing to succeed (Stress in America,
False assumption: A. First false assumption: Claire Perry suggests curtailing online activity late at night by unplugging the internet router; moreover, she says that teenagers have no right to keep their messages private and that parents ought to feel empowered enough to demand access to them. I believe that this is a huge mistake because children would feel dominated by their parents without any sense of freedom. Evidence: According to a parenting editor at Common Sense Media Caroline Knorr, who was mentioned in the article “should parents snoop on their kids online?”
The current study is the effects of exposure to technology on young children. As we become increasingly more reliant and absorbed in technology, it is no surprise that today’s children have become avid users as well (Hatch, 2011). Children at the age of three or four already have tablets, smart phones, and others; they could easily attain technologies and would even demand for one. As it makes easier for us, technology has both positive and negative impacts especially on young children. It comes with great opportunities but these opportunities likewise come with great risk
An article published by BBC News UK states that almost one out of five children have at some point experienced to be bullied online. These dangers are only som of many dangers youths may have to deal with in the world because of the technology. Despite of the dangers to brows the internet, the web can also be a great source for information and pleasure, but it is important to know the risks as well. Just because there are some dangerous things about the web.
