Why? (This direct quote should be different from the one used in question 1,2 or 3!) '...rather than addressing real problems like climate change.' This sentence is important because it shows that maybe in the years to come, social media and its use may turn out to be something even more serious with its addiction and it also shows how people tend to block the important stuff that

How might this article help you when writing your article "for" or "against" the Walls' parenting style? When referring to the glass castle with this article, it shows how the walls parents exposed their children to things children shouldn't have been exposed to and would block out the fact that what they thought was right was not right. This comes in contrast to social media on how people block the fact that it is bad for them and still stick to its addiction.
