#4 And where are the parents in all this?
Why do they allow their kids to surf or intercact with Instagram without supervision or time limits?

These body issues wouldn't be a problem with parents, ya know raised their kids instead of factbook and bitchslapped Zuckerberg and his minions for pushing this nonesense

#5 The problem with that is that FacistBook and the others often don't give the parents tools to filter their children's access outside of banning the entire site (I know... not bad...). The only thing a parent can do is ban Instagram entirely.
I typically don't allow my young kids access to YouTube or Facebook or any of the other social media sites. I would *love* to have them able to converse with their friends via social media or share videos but I would have to open it up entirely - and I do not like what the perverts at FacistBook, Goole/Youtube/etc consider 'acceptable for young viewers'. Not at all.
And they somewhat suffer for it :(.

#6 So a good parent would say "This is as bad for you as crack. I don't care if you hate me for not letting you have it."

#7 Every stage of a successful life involves controlled deprivation from stuff everyone wants. Attention when you are young. Who loves that kid who always needs to be the center of attention? Too many distractions when you are a young adult transitioning to hopefully self-sufficient adulthood. Neither too dominant or submissive in your adult relationships. Not too much food or booze and please no ciggies or drugs. Hopefully well enough set in your later years to take care of yourself or be cared for. All involve not being completely addicted to a screen that sucks your time and attention and gives nothing back.

#8 Good thing we didn't just lock our kids in their rooms for 18 months with nothing to do but computerize.

Yes, a parenting issue. A side effect of an adult wanting to be their kid's best friend, or more likely, single mom issues.

#9 Agreed. Parenting is *NOT* to be your kids best friend.

#10 I was born in 1961. When I was seven, our television broke. When I was seventeen, my baby brother bought a 13” black and white tv with his bar mitzvah money, and shared it with the family. I went straight from Lassie, Gentle Ben, and that animal thing to Soap and Saturday Night Live. As a result, I have never been quite connected to the culture of my age mates, or of Americans in general. It’s not just cussing that Mr, Wife has to translate for me — there are lots of cultural touchstones I’m unaware of, even yet. We did read voraciously, that thing everyone claims to want, and had time for all sorts of hobbies and activities, but not being connected matters.

There are seriously good reasons to deny this generation of kids time on Facebook, etc, but doing so will result in disconnecting those kids from their peers in important ways.

#11 Same, same you sweet young thing.
Telly went out and encyclopedia book reports came in. Also a mobile library would come about weekly.
Both assigned and reading of choice.

#12 As a kid I did not like what most of the other kids were doing. My senior year I was not in the senior play that all seniors traditionally were in. After it ewas over that ight the teacher over the play walked into the convenience store and said next year I would be in the play. I informed I am a senior. She could not believe I was so "independent".

I relished my independence from the social norms.
