Write an essay (150 - 300 words) about this topic:
It’s common nowadays for each member of the family to have their own piece of modern technology. Some people think that this will lead to a breakdown in family relationships and communication. To what extent do you agree?
Without a doubt, the development of technology has significantly ameliorated the human’s life. However, it is sometimes argued that the appearance of these modern means of communication will affect families’ happiness. I partly agree with the opinion.
One the one hand, I agree that family life will be disordered by on modern facilities. First and foremost, people always desire going back home to enjoy cozy moments together after strenuous working days, but every member wholeheartedly devotes our attention to laptop or smartphone screens for many personal reasons instead of the present moment in dinners or meetings. With the help of the Internet, modern technology today (smartphones, tablets), moreover, every person can easily search for fully fascinating entertaining resources (game online, new songs, films), which brings amenities of world entertainment for him other than talking with their parents or siblings.
Nevertheless, I believe that thanks to modern tools, members’ affection in the family is unceasingly tightened together. First, especially for those working far away from home, due to geographical distance hinder them from conversing with their family, smartphones today help them be able to talk, share with close relatives. Secondly, for those who are too busy working, the kinds of a special means of communication become a prosperous tool to enable them to ask after, encourage their children or parents. As a result, the love among people under the same roof becomes increasingly affluent.
In conclusion, although modern technology has a significant impact to lifestyle in families, I do not believe that love among members will be disintegrated.
