Children, Facebook, and the Internet at Large…..

February 11, 2011

After reading a thread on facebook I developed a few questions regarding children’s use of the internet and mobile technology.

Did the telephone cause this type of parental resistance? When did it become okay for children to use the telephone?

It is my position that if a child is aware of the internet he or she should be taught how to behave appropriately. There may be some mistakes or mischief, but correcting poor behavior and encouraging  good behavior is part of parenting. I don’t think that age should be a factor, but rather the awareness and maturity level of the child should be brought into consideration. Rather than making something taboo it should be explained and addressed in a way that children can understand and learn how to behave appropriately.

Good luck to all parents in raising your kids. I’ll let you all know how this works if I ever get to test my opinions and theories with my future children.
