u said it all kanchidost..............
internet has its pros and cons.......
But internet has made life much more simpler and easier as it is a galore of information. Preparation of projects and assignments has now become easy for me as i no longer have to spend time searching for books in the school library.And i know for one thing that my mom and dad do a major chunk of their work on the net. So........yes, it has made the world into a global village..........
The internet has extended its accessibility to a mind-boggling array of information that has helped various business, commercial, industrial and governmental agencies perform variety of functions.
but i would'nt agree that it has robbed kids of their innocence.........self-control is a quality that has to be excercised everywhere..be it viewing the television, talking on the phone, hanging out with friends and so on and so forth.
till the kids attain maturity i think the parents have a very commendable role to play, they must keep tap on what their kids to on the net...like till few years back my mum used to limit my time to one hour during which she would keep a check on what i did.
just as sugar is sweet and is liked by all, too much of it causes harm. In the same way, internet is a boon if used properly and a bane if not.

Internet a boon r curse. As everyone had rightly pointed out that there are 2 sides of a coin. It no use turning a blind eye to the bad things. Just bcs the cat closes the eyes while drinking the milk, does not mean that no one is watching. We got to accept the things that are there, the good and the bad. Unless u knw whats bad, u cant keep away.

I think for a child and a teenager, internet is a curse.
Homework and research: In my childhood, I had to go through hundreds of books just to write one page and now my little bro just logs in and get the info without any hassle. I am not against net surfing at all, but when you go through books, you learn more than you need for that homework. And now in college, my english professor doesn't allow any info printed from the net.
Chatting: Chatting is addictive and sometimes more than any other drug. Specially when your hormones are changing, you really feel comfortable chatting for long hours and once you are hooked, you begin to believe the P.C. Screen more than the real life.
Controling the net: It's impossible to control a teen. You may keep track when he's at home, but what about libraries and cyber-cafes? Even when your Internet settings are set on safe mode, you end up getting adult pictures in some popular web-sites.

Though it can be quite a boon when it comes to gathering information etc, the internet has become more of a curse particularly for younger teenagers. Its not like there weren't enough distractions in the form of technology without there being the internet where a child can spend hours and hours doing anything and nothing. The old ways of having fun are dying where friends were made face-to-face and playing meant being with other people. Also, too much information is not always a good thing. When the internet isn't monitored kids have access to so much information that really isn't meant for them and well, it ends in the early loss of innocence doesn't it.?
That is not to say that kids shouldn't be allowed to use the internet. They should but within limits, both in terms of time and also in terms of what they actually do on the internet.
