You attended a workshop by Ukub books on how to manage time spent on the internet. You were more impressed on how youngsters tend to overdo using the internet and become addicted to it. Your teacher has asked you to give a talk at school, on why it is necessary to limit time spent on the internet.
 
I recently attended a workshop by Ukub books on how to manage time spent on the use of the internet. I am here to share my experience with all of you. Much of what I heard at the workshop really altered my impression of the internet. I hope that you will agree with me by the time I finish my talk. First of all, let me draw your attention to a basic fact. Nearly all of us have a mobile phone. Gone are the days when you needed a computer to log onto the internet. Today, all mobile phones are internet enabled. When a computer was needed to get on the internet, there was the safety of parental supervision. The story is different with mobile phones. Nobody observes us when we use the mobile phone. Hence it is up to us to ensure that we do not create hazards for others when we use our mobile phones. At the same time we must also be alert to our own safety, too. If you check youtube, you will be shocked to find that so many people have been knocked down by all sorts of vehicles when they walked into the path of traffic while busy looking at their mobiles.

Another big drawback of constantly communicating via whatsapp, twitter and other such social media is that we meet face to face less and less. In the long run, we lose all sense of decent social behaviour. The importance of meeting each people is a totally different subject, so I shall leave it at just this mention.

Hardly any of us switch off our mobile phones at night. Many of us receive whatsapp messages and tweets even in the middle of the night. Disturbed sleep has been proven to have a direct impact on worsening grades in school. Worsening grades directly means worsening prospects for the future. Nobody dreams of becoming a menial worker. But without proper education, that could be the only option in the future.

After drugs and alcohol, the internet has been discovered to the third most addictive thing on earth. If you don't believe me, just leave your mobile phones away for 2 days. Even the thought of it is traumatic. That is how closely we have become to the mobile phone which in other words means the internet.

The most important lesson that I got from the workshop was that with mobile phones, we have to regulate ourselves. As I said earlier, we are not supervised when we use a mobile phone. So, it is up to us to make rules for ourselves. We should vow never to look at the phone or its messages when we are walking anywhere. We must always sit down somewhere before we read our messages. We must turn off our devices before we go to sleep. If possible, we must communicate via social media on at pre-determined intervals. Once a day is okay, but the time must be limited.

What I have mentioned is all in passing. I truly hope you will check out the facts that I mentioned, the next time you surf the net. Then, you will agree that mobile phones and the internet can be hazards in more ways than we know. The best thing is to treat them with respect and use them in moderation.
