Of course, the elderly can be benefited the most. They can stay connected with their children and grandchildren all the time.

First of all, parents should themselves set an example by surfing the net in positive way and not opening vulgar content on their computers.

Libraries have their own importance and will never disappear completely.

They then devise their own innovative methods to teach in even better ways.
