I just don't think teens should be aloud to have computers or phones of their own. I think they are nothin but trouble.

They have programs for computers and phones that only allow them on certain sites. It's not a big deal.

Mine didnt. We had 1 computer in our familyroom. Their phones didn't have internet or texting until they were 18.

Naw, I just think parents need to be hyper-vigilant about it. I was expecting to be able to come into teaching and the kids would know more about computers than I do. Phones, yes. Computers, no. We struggle with technical assignments because kids don't even know how to type or save a file, much less create a powerpoint presentation. When I ask, it's always, "We have a computer at home but mom/dad's always working on it."

It's a way fo life now.  I'm not a fan of it either, but you can't get away from it.  I have a 13 years old dd.  She has an iphone.  She can access the internet on it.  I trust her.  I also do random checks.  So far, we've only had a couple of issues.  Nothing too serious though.

My almost 16yo has his own lap top with Internet access. He doesn't look at things he's not suppose to. Mostly war games and ww1 and ww2 stuff.
