Do You Text at the Dinner Table? By SHANNON DOYNE and HOLLY EPSTEIN OJALVO Give us your take on whether “warm family moments” like the Feilers’ are ruined when someone reaches for a tech device. Do devices ever cause tension in your family? When and why, if at all, do you or other members of your family text or do Web searches during dinner? Is it acceptable or taboo in your family to do so? *

No, i don't text at the dinner table because i don't sit at the dinner table, no one in my house does. When it's a sunday afternoon and we're in the kitchen we fix a plate and either go sit in the living room and watch a movie or we go to our own rooms, so us texting doesn't really matter because n one cares.

What do you think is the greatest problems facing the teenagers of today? My opinion on this type of question will be from experience , i think the greatest problems students face today, is rape, violation, trust, the streets, drugs, and many more. We female teenagers tend to trust these young men, we tend to let them in our head and when we do that, education(school) doesn't even cross our minds anymore, we fall off because we think we're so in love or something like it. We female teenagers trust these boys and they turn around and violate us, they tear us apart inside, it's like murder, it's like your hearts getting ripped straight out of your chest. Teenage boys face the problem of the streets thinking selling drugs and trapping is cool and it's okay and the sad part about it all is that some of these teenage boys know what they're doing could get them locked up but they do it because they can't get out of the business(so they say), they do it because they feel like they can't stop, like it's completely impossible. We need to learn how to ignore these streets, ignore the drugs, we should be able to trust eachother and not have to worry about getting violated nor raped. That's the biggest problem these days, these teenagers aren't being raised right and the ones that are being raised right still tend to mess up in the end. It's pathetic us females shouldn't have to walk around scared worrying about what somebody's gonna do to us, if somebody's gonna hurt us, we should feel safe and protected, not scared and helpless. These male teenagers need to learn how to take their head out the streets & drugs and put it into some books so they can make something out of themselves. We need to be better and learn to grow more from our experiences. I HAVE.

How old do you think someone should be before they are allowed to play violent video games? Should parents buy violent video games for minors? Why? They should be at least 16 when they start playing this violent video games, any child under the age of 16 shouldn't be playing this violent games at all. No these parents shouldn't be buying these minors violent video games because these video games gives these minors some type of idea and they start to think that what goes on in the game is okay then they start to try it.

Should stores sell violent video games to minors? No they really shouldn't sell these violent videos games that they are selling to these minors are giving them ideas, and that's not a good thing because those violent videos sink into their heads and they start to think that a lot of those things that happen in the game is cool.

What will you do to improve your grade? Write a plan that includes at least 3 things that you will do.
i'll try to stay a bit more focused in this class.
i'll try to move my sit away from my distractions.
& i'll try to do all my work on time & make sure it's correct.


No i don't think my tech habits are hurting my grades at all. i spend all day texting, i have unlimited texting so at the end of the month i only pay $40 for unlimited everything. No i don't im way different then all these teenagers out here now, what i do they don't do and what they do i don't do. Yes sometimes i do switch from doing homework to checking my facebook because im never focus, but that's just something i have to work on. Yes i do think my grades are affected by that. No honestly my mom and dad don't limit my use of technology they let make my own decisions and my own mistakes and hope that i learn from it.
