Technology on the children

It seems like our lives have been slowly taken over by technology. Less people communicate face to face. Many things could be done or simplify with the help of technology. Is it a benefit or a harm to the person, especially to the developing children? So, my research topic for this semester is about the technology (e.g. computers, smartphones, television, etc.), and its impact on kids. With the text/media language, proper writing and communication with others may be influenced.

Do you know how different a school from the 19th century and a school today are?  Well maybe the buildings have changed, methods have changed, and technology has changed but the overall structure has not changed.  You place a bunch of kids in one room, teach them the classes that are generally considered the most important and then grade them all the same by one common standard.  The most important aspects of what a school should be like are lacking today.  The things many schools are lacking are promoting a rich social environment where kids are free to develop their creativity and collaboration,  as well as develop individual learning where they can actually figure out what they want to do and who they really are as a person instead of treating them like a robot and expecting them to be as good as everyone else at the general education classes.

My topic for this year is on education, what it is lacking, how it can be fixed and why it is a very important issue.  I feel Like a I really want to write about this because now that I have gotten through my public education I find myself looking back on how things could have been so much better.  At least in my personal experience I think that although the schools I went met the standards on teaching classes like math and English they were severely lacking in really anything else.  I know there are some schools that do focus on providing students with glimpses at what career paths they can take, however I believe they are overwhelmingly in the minority.  So I would like to delve into the facts about the education system and study in what ways it could be better because the world is going to be in the hands of the next generation of students and I believe should be taught in the best way possible.

What is the Best Parenting Style?

When someone becomes a parent they usually always want to do good for their child. Parents wonder, What is the best way to raise my child while also having a healthy relationship with them that will shape them to the best of their ability for the real world? Parents never really understand the full effect that everything they do and teach their child has on the child. The true power of influence a parent has to their child is greatly dependent on their parenting style.

There are many types of parenting styles. The three main types are permissive, assertive, and aggressive. What I will be doing throughout my research is to unfold and argue which parenting style is the best. This is very interesting to me because I plan to one day become a parent and find researching and writing about this topic to be good for me to learn all of the parenting styles so that I know which is best I feel is best for my kid.

Should there be nutritional standards in schools?

My topic for my research essay is the importance of nutritional standards in the school systems. Throughout my 12 years in education, my school only provided one health class which focused only on sex and fitness. Although such subjects were important to teach, as of today I’m still surprised that nutrition wasn’t given much importance. The cafeteria menus consisted on high- processed foods such as pizza, cookies, chips, candy, sodas and other unhealthy meals. No wonder the students lacked energy and concentration. Today, we live in a world where people are becoming more health conscious and making better decisions in regards to what they eat. Restaurants, hospitals, universities, fast food and other organizations are taking the necessary steps to provide the public with healthier food options. However, most schools still haven’t emphasized and implemented nutrition programs in classrooms and cafeterias to better enhance children’s lives. We shouldn’t forget how school meals impact a student and their lives. Our children’s health is critical to our future.
