REGISTRY: Paon – 2nd Generation
ENTRY NUMBER: 010
REPORTER: Antonia Paon
SUMMARY: Antonia Paon, Sofia Paon and Tomas Paon travel to Shang Simla. While Tomas visits long-time acquaintances and acts as a hopeless sugar daddy, Antonia tries to convince Sofia to get an interest in martial arts.
Sofia spends on average 6 hours per day in front of a notebook. The abuse of internet surfing disturbs her sleeping hours and causes her to fall asleep during classes quite often. Teachers have called either her father, Zaky Paon, or myself, Antonia Paon, to inform on the situation and recommend a course of action to deal with her obsession about computers.
Restrictions upon her use of technology devices have been unsuccessful so far. She refuses to comply to Zaky’s or my requests and argues that since her grades haven’t been affected by her unusual sleeping habits, we shouldn’t try to forbid her from using the internet. Her lower score has been a B. The idea that her school performance is being enhanced rather than impaired by her late night use of technology devices is seductive; nonetheless I tried to interest Sofia in something else than computers by dragging her in a trip to Shang Simla.
