Your kids and the Internet
« on: January 06, 2013, 12:46:03 PM »
Can someone give me a positive reason why its necessary to let your kids
get on the Internet?

Do any of you parents forbid your kids from getting on
Facebook and/or Twitter?

Grandkids been on internet since they were 8 or 9.  Learn it in school.
No facebook or twitter until 13..

My child does most of her homework on line and submits it via email.  She will not be allowed a twitter or FB page until she's about 17.  She does do research for school but we have a program that lets us know every thing she views.

     Young people today communicate by text on
cell phones and by internet. When I was young,
they "hung out" on the phone for 20 - 60 minutes
at a time. The technology has changed, but the
complaints about the lengthy "chat" sounds the
same.

20-60 was a short conversation....You just reminded me of the days when my daug tied up the phone for hours.
I love the txt option today.  It's not always convenient for someone to answer the phone.  Texting is a good tool to pass along info or ask a question.
