That’s it young lady, your grounded!No TV!No Computer!No Ipod!No Mobile Phone!”“But mum I can’t live without those things”If this conversation sounds familiar to you then you’ll know how it feels to thinkthat you are left with ‘nothing’.Well I believe that this is not entirely true.Good morning/afternoon Mrs Low and fellow classmates.The topic I have chosen to talk about is today’s youth ‘has it made’.I will be talking about 3 main points.#1- Today’s youth spends too much time with technology.#2- Choices.#3- They should consider themselves lucky.Point #1: Today’s youth spends too much time with technology.When you get home from school what do you do?Go over to your friend’s house and ride bikes until the sun goes down?Or come home, go straight to the TV or computer and stay on until your eyesstart to water.In the last 20 years technology has come very far and has become even morepopular to the youth of today.Instead of riding bikes, going for walks, getting fresh air or spending time withthe family they would rather waste the day on the computer, in front of the TVor having a phone stuck to their ear. Approx. 90% of youth use computers,59% of them are online.Some might call this an addiction. As technology grows, so does the addictionto use every new available piece.

acquired the diary on Friday, June 12, her thirteenth birthday. Anne wakes up at six in the morning and waits until seven to open her presents. One of the presents is the new diary.
