  • Hi Sbooth, this shows confirms my belief that during my teenage years our world was much better. Today there is so much at hand that our teenagers are lost for choice and as the quote says: The strongest principle of growth lies in human choice. If we could raise one generation with unconditional love, there would be no Hitlers. We need to teach the next generation of children from Day One that they are responsible for their lives. Mankind's greatest gift, also its greatest curse, is that we have free choice. We can make our choices built from love or from fear.
    Good Presentation Sbooth.

    • Social Internet
      • A place to build and nurture relationships
      • A place to express oneself
      • A whole world to participate in
      • A whole world of people to meet, the living web
      • MSN, MySpace, facebook, YouTube

  • 14.
    • Online world not perceived as being public: a world of peers without adults
    • Anonymity overestimated (they can’t find me; 'privacy by obscurity')
    • No educated adults in this new media to provide education (teenagers left to themselves)
    • Parents often have no idea about their children's online activities
    • Some of these issues are even tough for internet-savvy adults!
