Some people suppose that a computer is a useless thing because it distracts children from their study. Others think that it is necessary to have this electronic device at home. It is a disputable question.
In my opinion, pupils spend much of their time using a computer. They do not do their homework and get bad marks at school. It can lead to negative consequences. Secondly, children play videogames a lot.
It is harmful for their eyesight. Now many pupils have health problems because of spending too much time on games. Thirdly, children can communicate online with strangers who may deceive and hurt them that is why social networks are unsafe for pupils.
On the contrary, other people believe that a computer is useful because a child can find any information for his or her study on the Internet. There are many different sources. Moreover, parents may take control of how much time their son or daughter uses a computer. They can check his or her homework and permit to play a bit.
However, I completely disagree with this statement. There are various things on the Internet that are not allowed for children. Parents always should scan all the information. Furthermore, pupils cannot listen to their mother or father. They may waste much of their time on games or social networks on their own.
To sum up, I would like to say that children should use a computer as little as possible. There are different ways to spend their spare time.
