Should kids use Facebook?


One big parenting question for many people is, should kids use Facebook?

MIT Psychologists, Sherry Turkle, thinks that kids using Facebook is not a good idea.

It has been said that Facebook is going to change the rules so that kids under 13 can create a page. Mark Zuckerberg has been quoted to have said “my philosophy is that for education you need to start at a really, really young age.”

Sure, this seems true…to an extent.

We want our kids to be smart and learn new things as early as they can, but at the same time young kids just don’t know how dangerous the internet can be. With there already being problems with childhood obesity, cyber bullying, bullying in schools, and the normal teenage rebellion stages; do we really want to add Facebook to the list?

Children need to focus on their own kid activities, like school and sports, etc. They need to interact with kids their own age, and do physical things. Play outside, play a game, read a book even!

Plus, with everything that is so unsafe about the internet, if we did decide to let kids use Facebook, parents would have to monitor them so much that one of two things will happen:

  • The kids get mad that your being “overprotective” and start unnecessary fights with you, OR
  • They are going to find a way around your censorship to do whatever they want

I’m sure most of you have seen or heard about this video by now, but I think it relates to the subject very well. It is a dads reaction to his daughters posts on Facebook, and her lack of respect towards him and her family:

Should kids use FacebookIf you ask me, young kids should NOT be allowed to use Facebook. It ends up causing more trouble than its worth! Let kids be kids, and not get so consumed in the “internet world” that they forget what its like in the real world! When they are old enough to use the internet responsibly and safely, they can then be allowed access to social networking sites IF USED PROPERLY!

There are many other ways you can teach your child how to use a computer, or about internet safety without allowing them to have a Facebook page.

Please respond with any thoughts about this, what do you think?

Royalty7: Scam or Legit?


I must admit, I am new to investing, but it has always been something that I have been interested in. If you put your money in the right place, you most definitely can earn from it. But you can also lose a lot or even everything. Knowing the right place to make an investment is a technique that you have to research and learn. Nothing you invest in is going to make you rich overnight, well I guess I should say that very rarely does this happen.

While doing some research on something that I can invest in, that will have a relatively high profit margin and success rate, I came across Royalty 7. My first thought was, this has got to be too good to be true! A company that advertises that they have 7% daily, and 110% weekly investment strategies. You only have to invest $25 to start (or up to $250,000), you can have up to seven active investments at one time, and they even offer an affiliate program that pays 5%. There is just no way this can be legit!

So of course I went on to research the company. I found some very interesting news!

This seems to be a HYIP, high yield investment program, which most of these are types of Ponzi schemes. They promise a high return without disclosing many details about how the money is actually invested.

But, not all HYIP are scams!


You can see on the Royalty7 about page that the investments are in real-estate, tourism and energy.



There isn’t a whole lot of information about the site just yet, as it is still relatively new, having just been launched in 2011. But if you do any web search on the site, you will get two answers. One will be people saying that it is a scam because it’s a HYIP, but they have never tried it. The other results you will see are several testimonials of people who have actually been paid and claim that it is real.

The question is, is Royalty7 a scam or legit?

Well, you make your decision and I will make mine. The way I see it is that I can go online and meet people that have signed up, invested, and been paid the return that they expected.

Royalty7 Payment Proof

The other people that claim it to be a scam, have done no research and have not signed up or lost any money to the site. Any other program out there that you research, if it is a scam you will find real people giving testimonials of what they lost. I choose to go with the proof rather than the nonbelievers. Soon, I will be sharing my success story with you!

Check it out for yourself, and if you agree with me, sign up! Send me your proof of payment so we can share this with everyone else!

Please leave you opinions, what do you think?

I just read this article and was absolutely blown away!! Some teacher gave her student a “Catastrophe Award”! Can you believe that! So many students have to worry about being bullied by their peers, and now the teachers are in on it too? This just disgusts me.

Cassandra Garcia, 8-Year-Old Student, Upset After Teacher Gave Her ‘Catastrophe Award’ (VIDEO)

The Huffington Post  |  By

Cassandra Garcia, an 8-year-old student from Tuscon, Ariz., became upset after her teacher gave her the “Catastrophe Award” for the “most excuses for not having homework.” Garcia was given the “award” despite having a folder full of completed assignments, KGUN-TV reports.

Garcia’s mother, Christina Valdez, was outraged by the incident, claiming the teacher humiliated her daughter in public for no reason.

“She said the teachers announced the award in front of the whole class and all the children were laughing at her,” Valdez told the station.

When an angry Valdez reported the incident, she says the school’s principal blew her off, saying it was just a joke, according to Fox 4 Kansas City.

But at least one expert told KGUN-TV that this was no joking matter.

“That isn’t an award. It doesn’t fit the criteria,” University of Arizona College of Education psychologist Sheri Bauman told the station, saying a negative award like that is inappropriate — especially at such a young age. “They feel less than, they feel fearful of authority of what might happen if they make a mistake.”

Regardless of whether or not Garcia’s homework portfolio was up to par, a recent Australian study actually suggests that spending less time on homework should be celebrated instead of punished. Researchers found that in countries where spend more time on homework, standardized test scores are actually lower.
