Summer class about computers

The niece took the examination to avail of the summer class about computers two months ago.  Luckily, she passed the examination and she can avail of the summer class.  However, it is not for free but because she passed the exam she will get a discount.  I read the program and it is nice because it will really help the niece to be more knowledgeable in computers.  If ever she will take computer related course in college, it would be easier for her because of the background she will get is she grabbed the summer class offered.  If this class offered when I am still studying I will surely grab it.

The class has nice sessions.  The niece showed to us the amount we are going to pay upon registration and the amount we have to pay every session.  The discount is already deducted.  Even though it has discount, still the amount is a bit high and the SIL do not like it.  To her, instead of spending money for the said summer class, it is best to save the money for the next school year.  She has a point, anyways the niece is only 11 years old.  The offer is good but the timing is not.  I am pretty sure that more opportunities will come her way.  The niece is sad because she really wanted to take the summer class for computers.  I guess this is not the right time.

Cleaning her Facebook Friends

My niece is new to Facebook world.  Her classmate made her an account because I do not want to make one for her.  She got mad when I told her that she is too young to engage in social media life.  I told her that she has to wait when she turns 18 because this is the age required to make an account on Facebook.  And because her friends are into Facebook, she asked her friend to make her an account.  The niece now has Facebook account.  There is no use of arguing.  I just told her to be careful.  I warned her to be careful in adding friends because there are bad people on Facebook.  And there are rape cases happens because of the people they meet on Facebook (online).

Because I am worried of my niece I keep on checking his activities on social media.  I check her friends and post from time to time to make sure she is okay.  I also checked her friends especially her guy friends to make sure she is safe.  I am surprised because in just two months she has lots of friends compared to me.  I asked her if she knows all the friends she added on her list and she said no.  She has lots of guy friends she added and she did not know most of them.  They do not have mutual friends either.  I want to protect her from those bad people in Facebook (social media) so I told her to clean her Facebook friends.  She has to unfriend those she did not know.  I told her that it is best to stay connected with people she knows and do not just accept friend request from the people she did not know.

Setting-up Twitter Account for Her

My niece has Facebook account.  She told me that it was her classmate who made an account for her since I refused to make her a Facebook account.  I refused because I do not want her to for she is young.  And her age is not qualified yet.  I told her that she has to wait till she reach the age of 18.  I do not want her to involve in this kind of social media account.  In short, I just want to protect her from those bad stuffs on social media.  But, she has an account now and there is nothing I can do.  I just have to watch her and supervise her.

Right now, she is very active in Facebook.  Chatting to her friends and classmates and updating pictures.  She is enjoying it.  I always reminded her of avoid opening links/video for her own good.  After Facebook, she now wants to have a Twitter account.  OMG!  She is bugging me for days.  So now, I am setting-up Twitter account for her.  She wants to be updated on the latest of her favorite love team ALDUB.  Yes, she is a fan.  A big fan to be exact.  My niece is very much active of these social media thing.  And I cannot stop her.  I guess I just have to double my supervision and being alert for her safety.

It stops working

My old laptop is four years old.  I hand it over to my sister for two years already and she has been using it since then.  But because it is a bit heavy, the sister decided to buy netbook.  She is still using the old laptop though because some of her files at school is saved in the old laptop.  Just recently, she thought of handing over the old laptop to the niece because niece needs laptop at school.  The sister started transferring her old files to finally hand over the laptop to the niece.  However, the laptop suddenly stops working.

OMG!  I guess the old laptop is hurts that is why it stops working.  The sister is sad because she just bought new battery for the old laptop and the laptop is stopped working.  How can she give it to my niece?  Another expenses is about to happen I must say but the sister is on a tight budget.  The handing over of the old laptop might take longer because it needs to be repaired and the sister has no money for that now.  Just be patient my niece, you will have this laptop next year, we hope.
