The music was very loud so I couldn’t talk with my friends. Janet went to buy drinks but she fell over in her stilettos. We tried to help her but she was so embarrassed that she just sat on the floor and cried.

Oooops…. more homework for my tween….Teens

6 Μαρτίου 2016

 

 

 

Facebook and cell phones have so much engulfed our lives. These generational gadgets are most prevalent among teens. The most usual way of teen communication is texting messages or having access  to social media sites. A 17-year-old girl admits that she would rather give up a kidney than have her phone taken away. This alarming statement must concern all of us as it proves the extent of the addiction. But why are Facebook and cell phones so appealing especially among teens?

Firstly, the developmental needs of teenagers are met through facebook use. We all know that adolescence is a period during which teens mould themselves into what they want to be, and at the same time establish themselves as independent entities looking cool and impressing members of the opposite sex. Because they suffer from excruciating shyness and aching self-consciousness , social networking sites facilitate communication. For instance, if a teenager with a humongous spot is confessing his love to a beautiful girl, she isn’t aware of that. However, parents and teachers are concerned about online predators and say that online communication is so detached. Also teenagers are enslaved to their screens for endless hours instead of hanging out with their friends doing their homework or even enjoying their favourite hobbies.

There are solutions to this problem though. First of all parents should monitor their teens use of internet and give them a specific amount of time to surf the net. Moreover, if their teen is reducing the amount of time on the net , it  would be an effective idea if parents rewarded them with a present eg an mp3, trip to the museum etc.

Some parents prefer to install software to monitor their child’s internet usage. There are a number of programs on the market that can provide a detailed account of the sites that a  child has visited and the interactions they have been involved in online.

All in all, social networking sites and cell phones are just another generational thing. We must therefore accept it. Remember even with the advent of the television there were radical changes in people’s lives and the society itself. In the end, if you can keep your own life centered in reality and use social networking as a small part of it, you should be just fine.

1 According to the above text why is it that teenagers especially are so preoccupied with smartphones and social media sites like facebook?

2 Can you imagine what the life of a teenager was like before the advent of cells and facebook? Write down a short account of their pastime activities and interactions with the other people esp. their peers.

3 What can parents do to monitor their child’s use of the Net and social media sites?

4 Think of the radical changes television brought in people’s lives in the past. Write down a few concerns people may have held at that time as regards the “invasion” of the one-eyed-monster in all homes.

5 “if you can keep your own life centered in reality” what exactly does this  phrase mean?

6 Form meaningful sentences with the words in bold type (red in color) in the text.

Powerpoint Presentation : The Tell Tale Heart Edgar Allan Poe

8 Ιουνίου 2015

    

TRUE! –nervous –very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses –not destroyed –not dulled them. Above all was the sense of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How, then, am I mad? Hearken! and observe how healthily –how calmly I can tell you the whole story.

The Tell Tale Heart,  has always been one of my favorite stories by Edgar Allan Poe. Poe has managed to capture wonderfully the whole concept of madness in a macabre way that I find very fascinating. In the story a lodger goes mad and haunted by his evil eye, kills his landlord, burying the body under the floorboards. When the police come to investigate, the narrator killer is horrified to hear his victim’s heartbeat still beating in its burial place.

Clever Joke: Buying Time

19 Νοεμβρίου 2014

 

Joke

SON: «Daddy, may I ask you a question?»
DAD: «Yeah sure, what is it?»
SON: «Daddy, how much do you make an hour?»
DAD: «That’s none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?»
SON: «I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?»
DAD: «If you must know, I make $100 an hour.»
SON: «Oh! (With his head down).
SON: «Daddy, may I please borrow $50?»
The father was furious.
DAD: «If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I work hard everyday for such this childish behavior.»

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.
The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy’s questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?
After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think:
Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $ 50 and he really didn’t ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy’s room and opened the door.

DAD: «Are you asleep, son?»

SON: «No daddy, I’m awake».
DAD: «I’ve been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier. It’s been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here’s the $50 you asked for.»

The little boy sat straight up, smiling.
SON: «Oh, thank you daddy!»
Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills. The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father.

DAD: «Why do you want more money if you already have some?»

SON: «Because I didn’t have enough, but now I do.

«Daddy, I have $100 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.»
The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his forgiveness. It’s just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts. Do remember to share that $100 worth of your time with someone you love? If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days. But the family and friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives. And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our family.

Some things are more important.
