Our families are growing up with us again. They lived in their youth, according to their age. But time brings  development and change. For this reason,while there are bringing up us they should act according to our age we need.Because the world is changing. Our mission is to help our families to adapt to this new era. So we should get on well with them better. Otherwise they obstruct us because they think we are in trouble .We should be good models for them.

They should spend the time with our business. Everything they have learned from us will be a piece of us.  Thus, we will make them ready for our day. For example, they can also listen the kind of music we listen or share the books we read, watch films together. The compliance of each case and time will allow them to close us increasingly . So the important thing is  to do things together not what we do.

Human beings have changed unbelievably with the social media and the improving communication systems. In our standarts, likes and attitudes to people there have been serious differences.

  Of course I mean  firstly “FacelidCwFkZnuwbook” when I say “social media”. This is the most preferred  one today. Because Twitter has a specifical style, people head for Facebook where they can feel more comfortable and active. Other  websites stay in the background because of not being  able to introduce themselves and not having a software as  professional as Facebook has. These are the effects making  people head for Facebook. Now is the time to talk about the social media and world’s changes on Facebook and Twitter. With these websites people have experienced nearly an evolution. Firtsly news media has changed; people witnessed an event anywhere in the World at the same time, the visuals and the contents obtained from the media were commented on and shared. By starting a small activity created on Facebook “Arabian Spring” was begun and all the World got this through the social media.


  Person having  a higher degree education and making sharings about books, movies etc. by remarking names of owners creates awareness on people. Twitter also makes reading habit increase.  Share buttons formed for social media area have become one of the important things inspiriting to culture. We also have the chance to get in contact with somebody we are fan of (writers, singers etc.). One of my friends said “New generation grows up as antisocial because of using internet much more than it is necessary.” Actually I don’t agree on this idea. Because, being antisocial isn’t owing to  the internet, but is because of being unconscious about how to use the internet. If we behave consciously and control ourselves, we won’t be addicted to the internet. So it is better to make little time for the internet than spend our all day on these websites.

Understanding Teenagers (3)

In my opinion parents should be more careful in this respect. “We are not able to spare enough time to our children” it is not possible to solve the problem with this excuse. It just causes the problem to continue and when they blame their children, it shows parents aren’t mindful. It is a big responsibility to bear children. Much as most parents claim that they carry out this responsibility properly, to do this is not as easy as families think. If we consider this generation, in general the young able to set balance in their lives are very rare. For instance; Unfortunately we do not often meet people both having a good useful social enviroment and being successful. These people need someone to direct them and in this situation the most important duty belongs to parents. Kindergarten education has just been obligatory. Children go to kindergarten but it is necessary to education to continue at home as well. I think every family has to have information about child development and in today’s conditions. It is very easy to do this (child care family consultancy, child development boks and so on can be applied). The young are complained about to spend much time on Twitter, Facebook and many social share network sites like these ones, but today it is very normal to spend time on these ones. What is important is how much time they spend. If a person’s social enviroment is enough, she-he does not need to spend time on cyber world.Only thing to do for families whose children spends much time on the internet is asking themselves : “Why does he-she prefer spending time on the internet to spending time with us?” not enlarging problems by complaining about. If parents say “Our parents didn’t spare time to us, either” children are by all means innocent because there are two generations between parent’s parents and parent’s children. As a result “The world is changing and the only thing we should do is keeping pace with it”

Comparing English Teachers

I compare two teachers. A young one with an old one. The young teacher’s name is Kemal EMİRLER, he is teacher for 2 years. The old teacher’s name is Can OKŞAŞOĞLU, he is teacher for 26 years. We asked them to espulate the good and bad sides of being teacher.

Good sides
-To see student’s success gladdens us.
-To be able to assist undergoing family problems.
-To enable students far from their lessons to begin to study through persuasion.
-To gain love and confidence of students making them feel you care and value them.
-To reward students to escand their success, to organise social activities so that they will feel related socially.

Bad sides
-Working seven days of a week may be tiring.
-Unrest of being considered from outside as only a business place.
-Unfair competition as well as economic problems lead sometimes arising to negative effects on us.
-Streets resulting from annual inspection.

And twice Mr. EMİRLER explained:

Good sides
-To find solution to every kind of problems of students easily and manage to assist them.
-To be able to make friends with students not only at work but also social enviroments without exceeding.
-For students to be able to use what they have learned from me.
-Their consulting me on university and branch choise.
-Yo be able to exchange information mutually in the work circle between teachers.

Bad sides
-Not to give enough importance to education in some corparations.
-Being unable to interact with students by teachers.
-Difficulties students face in exams on account of not brushing up on vocabulary they have learnt and sentence patterns in time.
-Not being able to comment on reading passages owing to focusing on words so much: as a result not comprehending passages well enough.
