As an adult many people use computers every day. Kids are the future of our world so why would we keep them away from computers? The earlier a kid learns to use a computer the better. They will be more prepared for the real world. Computers can also be very educational.
It is obvious that we can find lots of good information from Internet.
But, We must remember what Albert Einstein says about Knowledge and Information.
“Information is not knowledge."
"Knowledge Comes From Experience.“
So, If kids started to search for information they may get addicted to it and fail to have experience.
Most of society today runs on the computer, and we are only improving more and more. Children in almost all schools in the us are using computers for homework, and research, because that's what they are assigned to do now a days. I do believe that there should be restrictions on what websites are appropriate or not, because there are some bad things out there, and with strong parental monitoring, the problem will be taken care of.
Kids can get out of their virtual world and talk to other people and be social, instead. They shouldn't just coop up all day with their computer. Plus, kids can be troublemakers, too, as some of them look up inappropriate stuff and illegal content. I wish they don't allow computers for kids so they will have more friends and will not be exposed to all kinds of online innuendo at such a young age.
Computers are a quick way to obtain info, but children have to learn to use books to instead as a computer may not always be on hand.
Computers also have games which can distract children from work or study, therefore reducing their grades.
Computers can give children health issues like eyestrain that isn't good for young children.
