The chart below shows the percentage of adults in the UK who used the Internet from 2003 to 2006.
The bar chart illustrates the percentage of Internet users in the UK over the 4-year period from 2003 to 2006. The initial impression from the chart is that the rates of people using the Internet in the UK generally enjoyed upswings in most age brackets. It is also clear that a much larger percentage of people aged between 16 and 24 used the Internet compared tothe other age groups.
In 2003, the figure for 16-to-24-year-old Internet users ranked first at 80%, followed by the 45-to-54 year-olds (60%), the 25-to-44-year-olds (50%) and the 55-to-64-year-olds (30%); no data was recorded for the 65+age group this year. In 2004, whilst internet usage of the 25-to-44, the 45-to-54, the 55-to-64 and the 65+ all rose to 60%, 70%, 55% and 15% respectively, the figure for the youngest age bracket plateaued.
In 2005, the figure for Internet users at the age of 16 to 24 reached a remarkable 100% – the highest of any age group, in any year – before undergoing a drop to 90% in 2006. In the meantime, the proportions of Internet users belonging to the remaining age groups saw similar increases to 80% (the 25-to-44 and the 45-to-54), 50% (the 55-to-64), and 20% (the 65+).

Some people say that parents have the most important role in a child’s development. However, others argue that other things like television or friends have the most significant influence. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
Opinions are divided upon whether parents or external factors such as television or friends play the key role in the development of a child. In my opinion, both factors constitute different but equally important parts.
On the one hand, parents form a child’s habits and virtues. Since birth until the age of school, it is no one other than the parents that follow strictly their children’s incipient stages. They teach their children from seemingly trivial daily activities such as brushing teeth before going to bed to defending yourself when being bullied, and it is not an overstatement to claim that a child’s life would go astray without those solid foundations. Even when the kids have reached the age when they can take care of themselves, parents are still instrumental in instructing their children in the process of maturity. With the unconditional love for their flesh and blood and a good source of life experience, parental care is intrinsically pivotal and irreplaceable.
On the other hand, while parents lay the first stable bricks, it is societal aspects such as friends that further develop the edifice of personality. Indeed, virtually no human being can be properly developed without access to the outside world. Interacting with their peers, children are able to learn from one another, adapt themselves to the vast of traits and build their own qualities. One’s spiritual life would not be complete without such an exposure to different personalities. Moreover, with the advent of technological devices such as the Internet and televisions, human race have been granted even greater opportunities to gain access to the world, and it would be a great loss if we do not take advantage of such external sources.
In conclusion, I believe that a child’s development is built by both parents and exterior elements. Therefore, a harmonious combination of both sides is essential.
