Due to the contemporary developments in the information technology and convergence, the accesses of adults and children to media including variety of entertainment have increased. The children have impressionable minds and the quality of entertainment would have a bearing on them even when they grow adults. One moderately rich family has two children who have given mobile phones to their children with internet connection so that they can complement their studies with huge amounts of information and aids available on the internet. Father encourage children to ‘grow with the technology of their times’ and rather than ‘forcing discipline’ on them. However, there is also the misuse of information technology. The students are engaging in many undesirable activities outside the school, especially their exposure to many computer games (Blue Whale Challenge, Dead Space 2, Mortal Kombat, Medal of Honour, Call of Duty Black OPS, New Vegas etc.), which are known to be fatal and addictive, impinging on their education and value systems. Answer the following questions: (a) What steps parents can take to stop such new and pervasive kind of menace due to the unrestricted use of the computers and mobile phones? (5 Marks) (b) What is the importance of “forced discipline” in this case? (5 Marks) (c) How can discipline be sustained for a long time without discontent of the subjects? (5 Marks)
