Do u think computers really helping childrens in their studies or they are destroying their careers as most of the children didn't use their computers in right manner they just use it for seeing movies and listening songs,they can see all those things which they should not see.

Well the way the world is today almost everything is done on computers, so teaching them at a young age, the right way to use one, is probably the best thing. My son is three, he plays a blue's clues and a dora the explorer game on the computer, and he likes to play with the paint software. I think they can help, as long as they are taught the right and wrong ways to use it, same with the tv.

I am not worried about the children on here. I am worried about the adults who can't seem to get off the internet.

Not all children use it for only entertainment many use it as a learning instrument. Parental control is advisable as it does offer too many sites that are not good for children.

In some way computers do help children in their studies. Especially with regard to doing their research and term papers as the internet provides easy access to many topics. However, most children do not use the computers and the internet for this purpose, as you have already mentioned. In this regard, it actually becomes the responsibility of the child or individual that makes the use of computers bad or good for them.

If you have a good idea and observation that children do not need computers in their studies yet, then let them stay away from it. We know that kids are using computers mostly for other purposes. Once they are in the high school level though, it becomes important that they have one available to help them in their studies. What with all those assignments and researches to do.
