Well, that's what I've always done too, but we now have 2 extra laptops, 6 kids, no way to know who did what, when they're all over the house. Plus once it's done, it's done, you can discipline the kids, but what about what's already embedded in their minds?

I think it boils down to lifestyle as well as common sense. For us, we don't watch a lot of television and my son is growing up with other forms of entertainment. We maybe watch a total of two hours a week. As far as the computers - well the family computer will be in a central location where there is no privacy. While I don't plan on supervising every second I will let him know (fair warning) that I will occasionally check the sites he goes to. Also my husband is an IT professional so that helps to keep up to date with how computers work. Some parents know less than their kids do about computers. Cell phones, texting, whatever technology comes along....well we will use common sense. I am a big believer that it is a privilege and not a right so what can be given and earned can also be taken away at anytime. Rules? You bet! Its called safety.
