Good luck enforcing that.
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.
