Is The Internet Bad For Young People?

One advantage of the internet is that young people can do research on their school work and homework. This often helps teenagers to widen their knowledge and improve their grades. Another positive aspect of the Internet is that people can learn foreign languages by chatting to friends in other countries. This is also a good way of keeping in touch with friends and family around the world.

On the other hand, there are also negative consequences. Some young people become addicted to online gaming and this can mean that they waste too much time playing games. This can have a negative effect on their school work, the amount of exercise they get and their social lives. Addiction, and excessive internet use can mean that some young people hardly talk to their family members because they are always on the computer.

To sum up, spending time on the internet can have a negative impact on young people but it also has many advantages. Personally, I think the Internet is an incredible tool and the benefits of internet access overweigh the danger. However, we should be careful not to use the internet excessively.
