Effective use

print   ·   T  T  

Internet is a boon to children. It is easy to operate since it gives step-by-step instructions. It takes lesser time to access information than going to a library and hunting for the books. It educates children through pictorial information and holds their interest through colours. A few games on the net stimulate the development of the brain. But kids also face the risk of exposure to inappropriate material. Teenagers are particularly at risk because they often use the computer unsupervised. It would be better to instruct children about both the benefits and dangers of cyberspace and to safeguard them. Children need parental supervision and guidance to make their cyberspace exercises useful, healthy and productive. Parents should encourage kids to visit websites that add to their knowledge. It helps to bridge information and communication gaps. So, use it effectively.
