Subject:  Learn basic manners
The main issue I have is with people who have not bothered to learn any manners. Sometimes, when I chat with people, I am so fed up with their spelling mistakes and bad language. As far as possible I try to avoid such chat rooms. Nowadays, I chat only with known people. It is good not to chat with unknown people. I also keep track of whom my younger brothers and sisters are chatting with. Chatting with unknown people can prove to be dangerous at times. I have started avoiding such things and also ask my younger siblings to avoid chatting with strangers.

Subject:  People don´ t listen
I have the same problem. My friends who are housewives often send me several forwards a day. I do not have time to check my mail everyday. When I do check my mail, seeing so many forwards overwhelms me. I have to keep deleting all of them. I even told my friends not to forward me anything but they just don' t seem to listen. It is good to inform children about such things. Especially teenagers, it is necessary to alert them about such emails and forwards. I always tell my friends also to inform their children about basic net etiquettes.

Subject:  No forwards
I agree about the forwards. I work in an office and have to keep checking my mail every time. I don' t understand how people can have no work and keep forwarding things all the time. I don' t have the time to read each one of them and decide what to keep. It irritates me so much. So I tell my daughter also to avoid such things. I tell her that do not forward attachments unnecessary through emails because people might get angry at you. It is very essential to make children aware about such thing to avoid problem in future. I also get scared to let her use internet.

RE:Teen Aggression
I agree. Children in their teens are indeed stubborn and disrespect their parents. However, I feel that the best way to deal with this is to equip them with the understanding of what is right and what is wrong and leave them to decide what to do. Usually if you trust them, they will do the right thing. But if you try to force them, they will revolt and do the wrong thing.... - Ana [View Message]
