with the Internet will benefit the child while rowing up.

This is a great article about how social media benefits children while they are growing
up. The author talks about how social media allows children to communicate with their
peers more easily. Social media also allows for Students can benefit from reciprocal
sharing with bloggers from other ethnic groups or nations. This is a point that I did not
think of, but it makes sense and it is some thing that without social media would make it
very difficult if not impossible for children without social media. It also says that parents
do not monitor children online very much until they get to certain ages where they can
start getting in trouble online. The author also mentions that not everything about social
media is good and there are still many questions about it that have not been answered,
such as cyber bullying. This source is relevant to my research topic because, I too feel
that there are many benefits to social media for children while growing up, but there are
also many things we still do not know about it, some of which can be bad.

Age: Latent Growth Curve Analysis Of Proactive Media Monitoring." Journal Of

This was a good article, which talked about how parents who monitor their children
online, how it affects them. According to the article there are two typed of monitoring for
parents of their children. One where the parents just outright ban certain things, and limit
the time they are allowed to spend on approved things. The other is parents who talk to
their children about the things they see online and offline, so their children can see why
certain things are good and others are bad. This article makes very good points, because I
believe that while people have different sides about weather social media is good or bad,
either way the parents should be involved with their childrens lives.

This article discussed the similarities and differences between younger people aged 25
and under, who have grown up using the internet, and older people aged over 40 who
were introduced to the internet and social media as adults. She chose to be very
restrictive about whom she accepted as friends in order to be able to share family pictures
and information with close family members living apart. On the other hand, the three
youngsters described a somewhat different way to use Facebook. They used it to
communicate and coordinate everyday activities with friends they also met regularly.
The first person is one of the people over 40 who stated that they are more selective who
they are friends with, while the younger people are not as selective and use social media
to organize meet ups. I agree with that, that younger people use it more as a tool to
actually meet up in real life than older people. This article makes good points, and I will
use some of them in my paper about how younger people use the internet more as a tool
to help them meet up, while older people use it more as a tool to help them stay
connected to friends and family they do not get to see very often.

This is a good article; it talks more about the negative affects of social media on children
growing up rather than the benefits. It talks about cyber bullying, and how going online
increases the chances for sexual predators. It also talks about how things you post on the
Internet stay online forever, and how people growing up might not fully realize that they
stupid things they post online will always be there. It also mentions cyber predators, it is
believed that more than half a million pedophiles are online every day. I agree with the
article that online predators are a issue, and that children need to be warned about them
and taught on how to avoid them. I will use this in my paper to show that not every thing
about social media is good, while there is a lot of good things about it there are also some
bad things that go along with them.

McBride, DL. "Risks and Benefits of Social Media for Children and
Adolescents." Journal of Pediatric Nursing. 26.5 (2011): 498-9. Print.
This is a trust worthy, peer review article that focuses more about the negative
affects on social media with children growing up. It states that the negative affects of
social media on children include cyber bullying, and will put children at risk of feeling
isolated which will result in far worse things. Sufferers are at risk for social isolation and
may be unduly influenced by Web sites promoting drugs or sex. I agree that with social
media there will be cyber bullying, and it might make some people growing up feel
isolated, but I do not think it will make them have sex with each other or try drugs. I
think either way there will be people who experiment with drugs and sex whether there is
social media or not.
