Yet, most people agree that having a mentor is a great asset in your career in this (and other) fields. In this video I cover the basics of mentoring, along with some advice on how you can have a mentoring relationship to jump-start your data science career / learning.

    Very relevant and thought provoking JuanBee! We do not have ALL THE TIME in the world, to explore the WORLD OF INFO and knowledge and distraction now at our fingertips thanks to smartphony and the ubiquitous Internet. So it is of utmost importance that we teach our children to prioritize, be selective, considerate, cautious and focused (in activities and relationships online), and lend greater importance (or at least equal importance) to physical activity, time management and connecting with peers and family, and of course, not ignore newspaper and book reading (the hard-copy versions) ;)

    Excellent tips @Juan Imaz! I remember when my daughter was a teen and using ICQ back then. I worried about some of the dangers you mentioned above and told her she could only use if KNOWING we have the password for the PC. She was also warned we would check her convo's on occasion. She didn't like it but I did fear she might have been naive and met a stranger online, it's too easy for kids to get duped. I love the positive aspects you wrote about too!!

    A wider issue is the extent of exposure to screens at the exclusion of the real world especially in the first 100 days. Some parents are extending "social" to mean using devices as a distraction, baby sitter, or pacifier for very young children. There is some research that warns that this is potentially causing long term damage.
    see: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/behind-online-behavior/201604/what-screen-time-can-really-do-kids-brains
    for example. The tips have to include alerting parents of young children (under 3) of this risk.

    Great article with excellent points. My sons are 12 years old and I am very wary of them becoming social. While there are great benefits there are still many dangers and cause for concern. Thus, the need for supervision, which a teenager does not want. The best option is to teach them right from wrong and how to assess situations to make the morally right and ethical decsions.

    An addition to your article though are the parents who create profiles for their children and chronicle their lives on social media. I think this is wrong and is a violation of the child's rights. What if later in life the child is embarrassed by some of these posts? Parents who do this must consider what and how they are posting about their child.

    26/03/2017 #18 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman
    This is a post every parent should read. The benefits of the internet for children can be amazing in helping them grow, but the dark side can set a young mind back permanently. Also, the internet should not be a child's sole communication with the outside world. Children need face to face contact in order to grow healthy relationships.

I echo the comments of your readers, this is a very important discussion and one that needs to go on on a regular basis throughout the various mediums. My contribution to the discussion would be to say something I just read in an article about this topic; let the children live as long as they can in the real world before they go on to the virtual one. And I would like to see 16 as the age of starting to form a profile on-line.

    @Susan Rooks , @Juan Imaz I suggest you google the following
    I can't walk yet but I know how to work an iPad.
    It's an article from today's Times Magazine.
    It covers many of the issues raised so far and most of the points I wanted to make.
    Particularly around the issues of what constitutes addiction.
    From " Kids have basically been carrying around a portable dopamine pump for 10 years, to an interesting comparison of the effect of screen time to eating time.
    I like the final two sentences.
    "You can only do your best. There's always going to be something."
    As parents don't we know it.

    @Juan Imaz, this is obviously an incredibly important issue. I'm part of that 36% in your graphic that thinks the appropriate age is around 15 (depending on the kid, to some extent). I get that younger kids have peers who may be allowed more freedom, and that's where I also think parents need to be watchful. Parents may be careful in their own home, but what happens when their kids sleep over at a friend's house? Just go over to play? Have the parents had conversations with other parents on this? I sure hope so!

    @Juan Imaz well said. And good suggestion mentioned for "caretakers, guardians and as well as for parents" by @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood. During March 2011, at an event in Scarborough I got an opportunity to interact with Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and spent some time sharing about aspects of merits and demerits of children's online and usage of devices (yeah prior few of us as freelance volunteered during 2005/2006 shared awareness about such in a different global locale). Also at the same time had shared opinion about focusing on LinkedIn as tool for HR. And got to interact for a minute with John Tory (now present mayor of Toronto) was also present at that event. Later thrice got to meet for some reasons. (If by chance some might have seen friendly tweets exchange during 2013/2014).

    Well done !
    At all steps, children need guidelines, and more so in this digital age very competitive. Lowering the stress level digitally will help them focus on more important tasks in their daily life.

    Welcome to beBee Roland. I tend to look at a more broader brushstroke which is "teachers in exile". That includes teachers who have left the system due to teacher abuse, but it also includes teachers who have left their profession because they have lost discretion to manage their teaching and instead must conform to a rigid test culture .

    There are also additional horror stories of what the Chronicle of Education described in 2009 as "mobbing" - where there is the existence of peer-to-peer institutional bullying. http://www.chronicle.com/article/mobbing-can-damage-more-than/47736

    I recommend the writings of @Joyce 🐝 Bowen - Joyce writes more about the story of child abuse but what is interesting about her is that she is focused both on achieving making a living despite being overlooked due to her MS condition and fighting for the rights of those who are most defenseless in our society.

    Emotional resilience is very difficult and for people who have suffered, that resilience only has a chance of coming into being, once we become aware of the different forms of abuse, one can only do one's best to spread awareness, our society can still be a monstrous one regarding what it likes to attend to.
