Hi Curtis,

I love playing Minecraft! It's one of my all-time favorites with my cousins and brothers. There are lots of reasons why people play Minecraft. For me, it's a chance for me to get creative and build various forms of houses or buildings. I appreciate you sharing that watching how children or teenagers respond to games is important, especially when a child or teenager responds in a very negative way and the long-lasting implications of those emotions. I agree with your tip that monitor a child's usage is important, but also giving them some sort of autonomy in their game choices and how they respond to situations. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Cindy,

It's very important we take notes of the negative implications of gaming and how to combat those negative implications. While gaming can be addiciting and harmful in some ways, I agree with your point that video games can help us to grow our mindset to be creative thinkers. The tips that you shared are very insightful and important! Maybe I can take some time this holiday to play The Room, I love puzzles! Thanks for sharing, Cindy!

Hi Yizheng,

I appreciate you bringing up the idea about both free speech and accountability. I think sometimes it may be hard to balance security and privacy rights, especially when it involves something major or significant. But I believe that safety should always comes before all else, because without safety, there would no growth and learning that can take place. I like how you gave the example of Medium! I also appreciate you sharing the experience of online harassment involving a stranger asking for money. I think it is so crucial that we teach and model our future generation leaders the appropriate and safe way to handle situations like this and to prevent it from occuring to others. Thanks for sharing!
