Nowadays videogames and social network are the pros and cons of our life. Some parents think that if there is a computer at home their children will waste much of their time on videogames and social networking. Let us discuss this issue.
In my opinion, the problem is not is in the computer it is in a child. Firstly, if a child is smart he is not going to waste his time on videogames or surfing the Internet. Secondly, the computer and Internet are the biggest innovations of our century, children need just to use them in the right way, not only to look for new videogames or chat with friends. Finally, the Internet is very useful for everyday life and any person can find any information he wants.
Opponents of this view may argue that the Internet effects badly on children in the sense that it corrupts them and makes them angrier. Moreover, they say that a computer has a bad influence on the child's psyche and it is harmful for their health.
To some extent it is true. However, this position cannot go further than being an immature claim. Firstly, it is all depends on children whether to use the Internet in the right way on not. Secondly, a computer does not influence so harmful on the health of children if they use it as it said in the rules.
To sum up, I want to say that the computer and the Internet have become an integral part of our lives and it up to us to use them in a right way and not to waste time using them.
