Should Children use the Internet

The internet has changed the world but it has also changed the young beings in it. There is a huge debate on whether the internet is good or bad for children. Of course the benefits cannot be denied but there is a silent danger that is creeping behind the virtual space.

The effects of technology on children are complicated, with both benefits and costs. Whether technology helps or hurts in the development of children’s thinking depends on what specific technology is used and how and with what frequency it is used. A large number of children use the Internet to browse websites, chat, play games, participate in online forums, get information for their homework, post their profiles on social networking sites such as Facebook and twitter and send e-mail.
