Internet can mean happiness and make life easier
Now in days, everything one does will always include the usage of an electronic device, and of course, the internet. Technology is continuously growing and eventually everything will become electronically. It has become a huge debate amongst our society on how the internet is affecting our lives, especially how it affects our younger generations. However, the internet can be a huge asset if used properly for anyone. We are in control of how we use the internet and how much time we invest in it. Most importantly, make sure we are surfing the web properly.
I agree with Tara Kelly/London in her article TIME Is the internet the secret to happiness? She gives information of how important it is to have internet access and how much easier life can be, regardless of the negativity our society portrays it to be. The effect of internet access in our home is mostly happiness. Being a parent of three kids, ages eleven, nine and two, is a must to have internet access in our home. I benefit from it as well as all three of my kids. I' am able to use it for school purposes, to pay my bills, and help my kids with homework. I even use it to track our medical records.
My main reason to have internet access at home is so my kids can complete their online courses given to them by their school. They no longer take written papers to school, they now have chrome books where they type essays, complete their math and submit or upload their work. Their school requires them to have access to the internet to allow the teachers easier access to grade their work and monitor where the student might need help. Students are even given access to online games to help them learn more efficiently. This encourages them when learning things that are not in their best interest.
Not only is it essential for my kids to have internet access for school purposes, but they also need it for personal use. For example, my daughter which is the oldest needs it for practice meetings. My son mostly uses it for extra help with his literature classes. My youngest daughter loves to use the internet. She enjoys watching educational videos, games and listen to songs. Despite her age, she benefits from it a lot as well because I usually give her access to educational applications. It is amazing how much she has improved on her speak and knowledge of things because of those applications online. Her vocabulary has expanded much more, she knows her ABC's, she recognizes a majority of the colors, and she is able to count from one to ten. After my children are done with their school work and they have helped around the house, I usually give them some free time on the internet. They love to play online games, watch TV episodes and chat with their friends. My children have good behavior and they seem to be on their best behavior if I mention free time on the internet.
I personally need internet access in my daily routine. I need it for work, school and on the go. I work in a lab and half of the time I am there I am working on my computer. I mostly use it to input patient's information, view labs, and print results. I am currently going to college and need access to the internet for homework, assignments, tests and upcoming events. I also have internet access on my smartphone for when I don’t have time to use the internet at home. It is a must to have my phone with me at all times. I mainly use the phone internet to check my bank status for balances, inquiries, payments and deposits. I also use it a lot for social media, picture messages and even skype to keep in touch with my family about any upcoming events.
I love the fact that I could now access my kids and my medical records online. I can download the medical record and share it with any other clinic or school requesting them. I am able to view the last visit to the doctor, the reason for the visit and what medication he prescribed. I don't have to waste time to visit the doctor for refills anymore. I simply go online and request refills without seeing him. My busy life does not give me time for a visit to the doctor for a simple refill anymore.
Regardless of people's perception of the internet being a bad influence on our society, I honestly think we need to try and catch up with technology for it is advancing too quick. Having access to the internet could be bad if you do not know how to access it properly. As an adult, we need to be responsible when accessing the internet. Parents especially need to have control over their children's access to the internet. It is in our power to show them respectively how to use the internet, as well as how much time is allowed for them to surf the web. It is essential to my understanding to show them at a young age how to use a computer. They will have more opportunities in life and become technology savvy at a young age. Our younger generations can be the growing technology in the future.
