In my opinion
, computers at home help children get a better education. Computers help them do homework, write compositions, learn interesting things. Attaching a printer, children can also print out their lessons or save them to an external drive. Using the Internet on computer opens up a whole new world of information to them that further helps them immensely to get a better education.

some people think that computers at home don’t help children to get a better education since they waste time playing games on them and books alone should be used for education.

Concluding from the above
, computers are essential aspect of today’s education and just as they are used in classrooms, they should also be used at homes to get a better education for children.
