Online homework and social media pose parental dilemma

Is the use of the Internet by children really any different to any other parenting situation in which parents need to show clear judgement and set –  and enforce – clear rules and limits?

I would suggest that all the potentially very serious implications of inappropriate use of the internet by children (whether that be access to adult material or wasting time and damaging progress at school) are such that this is a situation where parents must establish and enforce clear control over their child’s use of the internet. Ultimately, someone is in overall control – either the parent or the child; better that it is the parent I believe.

I would be interested in your views though 🙂
