I agree with the article “ Don’t, Don’t, Don’t vs. Do, Do, Do” by Will Richardson because I like looking at “dos” and not “do nots.” If we were taught earlier what not to do on the computer then we would already know those restrict when we use computers more regularly. Rules that make you do something instead of restricting you from doing something seem to work better I think. “Do your homework first,” versus “You cant hang out with friends until your homework is finished.” If I heard the second example I wouldn’t do my homework and live with not being able to hang out with friends that day. On the other hand if I heard the first example I would get my homework done as quick as possible and go play. ‘Do nots” also make it seem like you can’t do anything on the computer while “dos” make you look forward to having a computer. “Dos” are much more fun to look at then “do nots” because they show the positives of having a computer.
