    Default How your kids should be using the Internet

    How your kids should be using the Internet

    Kids are growing up with the expectation of auto-playing streaming videos and having access to our phones when we need them to be quiet.

    Nope, not married and no kids, and you?

    I think video games can be great for kids though, I maintain that I learnt more from video games than I did at school

    Yeah, divorced and single full time parent.

    I was curious, if as the writer (or publisher) of the article in question, if you had any genuine interest in the subject matter.
    But yes, I screen everything my son watches. Thankfully I only have Netflix, which has much better content that the drivel that is on DSTV. I also don't allow him on my phone, though he does have a PS3 in his room which again is controlled by myself as to his time spent on it.
