Week 4 Task 3: Ask Teens’ Parents …

Dear students,

After sharing the survey and collecting teens’ responses, the results showed that 60% of the 304 teens who completed it prefer “Facebook” as a way of communication. See the image below:

Favorite way 2

Teens use Facebook for many reasons, for example, it’s more fun, the easiest, the most common among them, and it gives them more time to think how to reply deeply. They also use it for many purposes, for example, to chat and study with their friends, find new friends, share opinions, photos, and videos, share their political opinions and many other things.

Although it is a useful tool for teens, their parents don’t allow them to use it in the school days. Parents think that it wastes time and badly affects their studies. See the image below:

Parents in school days

Your task now is to interview some parents and ask them the following questions:

  • Why do you refuse to allow your teens to use Facebook? 
  • What other tools do you suggest for teens to communicate with each other?
  • Don’t forget to take a photo for you with the parents you are going to interview.

Once you finish this task:

  • Write a comment below about why parents refuse to allow their teens to use Facebook and what other tools they have suggested to communicate.
  • You can also tell me how you feel when you interviewed parents and talked with them.
  • Upload the photos you have taken below with your comment.
  • I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
