When will it end...
When will someone step into the spotlight and demand that controls must be set online. They are set in every other aspect of our life: drinking, driving, smoking, to name a few. Last night, in class, we discussed the importance to involve parents in the understanding of what the internet is doing to their child's generation. At what point do we demand social networking sites to have an age limit and if their are age limits at what point do we require verification for ages? It is quite sad that children feel they can change their age online to appear cooler, or be a different person. Why are we teaching our future that it is okay to lie, to cheat, to be deceitful?
