By referring to the Internet as a tool, I don't mean using blog sites, etc. where you are interacting with people. I meant simply using search engines such as Google or Bing, where there is no interaction. But I will definitely take into consideration the difference of terms.
i just saw your other thread where you said you are on the road to be a ped.
as i tell my dd sometimes they are worse than physical violence. so beware of what you say.
so its even more important that you in your role are even more aware of your speech.
one of the biggest complaints i hear is talking down to others. not saying you are doing that but its very easy thing to do - even in ignorance - it still is what it is. talking down. now some people may be able to ignore it and move on, but for many they have been talked down to so often that they cannot handle it.
unfortunately we are not really taught how to communicate with people, especially when we are older and still need to. most people enjoy talking about how they do things, their culture but only if someone is genuinely interested to learn about them, not compare them with their culture and just focus on their differences. its a hard, hard thing to do. to break out of your own mode of perspective and look at someone with whom you differ a 180 degrees. which is the reason why racism is still so strong even today inspite of civil rights. i feel civil rights only gave legal rights, but society hasnt changed much since then.
but i do want to add - since you are talking and thinking about this - you will make a wonderful kind and sympathetic ped in future
