There is no doubt that the internet has been a boon to the human civilization. It has literally put information right at our fingertips. Whatever information you want, you can get it without much trouble. All you need to have is a PC, laptop, smart phone, iPad or tablet with an internet connection.
However, there are concerns that the same facilities things that have made life easier are harming us in other ways. Many people feel that by making information available so easily, the internet making our children lazy. Since they do not need to work hard to get the information they need, they are not making enough use of brain and as a result they are becoming dull.
There is, however, no concrete evidence to prove that today’s kids are actually becoming dull. In fact, they seem to be a lot more knowledgeable than the children of the same age a few decades ago. Because of exposure to so much knowledge, they also seem to be smarter. So the idea that the internet is making our kids dull seems to be nothing more than pure hypothesis.
However, there is something that the internet is turning today’s into – internet addicts. This is harmful to their health and sanity. Therefore, parents should encourage them to participate more in outdoor activities while not dissuading them using the internet.
