I say no because the children aren't necessarily doing anything wrong online.

Parents should limit the time their children spend on technology because:
- Spending too much time on tech will make them lose their eyesight
- They can be spend their time doing things that are worth their time!
- They won't live life to the fullest

They can learn online, no proof of losing eyesight, and they can enjoy themselves playing video games.

apappas2018, you might not know this, but computer addiction is a REAL problem in todays society. For some reason people dont accept it , but just because it isnt as addictive as say, tobacco, doesnt mean it isnt addictive.

I think the people debating this are not doing the best job. My stand point on this topic is that kids should have all the time they want on the computer as long as they are doing something productive. This generation of kids will all be growing up into a technologically advanced world where they will need to learn how to work with computers at a young age to be successful with some of the most high demanding jobs in the near future. I understand completely that it can have a negative effect on eye sight but the majority of the jobs in the future will be involving computers and knowing how to work with them; especially computer programming. If kids are learning how to do this and are becoming familiar with computers at a young age, it will set them up to be successful in the future. This is why it is very important to learn the basics of computers as a kid.
