Should teenagers' access to the internet be limited?

  • Rampant Addiction in Teens

    We have five children. Of those five, one cannot control his own internet use. He spends hours and hours gaming, Chinese social media, whatever. He uses it as an avoidance tactic and to avoid personal relationships with real people. For our other children, we establish normal controls, such as sleeping hours, etc. For him, stricter controls are necessary or he would literally be on from the moment he wakes up to the time he falls asleep. It's important that restrictions are there in any case, but should be geared to each child's maturity and responsibility level. However, caution should be taken when establishing rules for fostered and adopted children. If their trust system is already damaged, any rule setting will damage it further and possibly irreparably.

  • Addiction is rampant, restrictions are needed, but should be based on individual child

  • Addiction is rampant, but each child is different

    I have an adopted teen boy from China. He came almost four years ago with the expectation we would trust him in all things 100%, but most especially the internet. As time has gone on, his constant and addicted internet use (Chinese social media, gaming) has taken the place of all relationships in his life, other than a couple of friends, also from China, who are just as addicted. The internet IS their life basically. That is where their friends are, their gaming life, the "invisible" people they talk to. We have established internet times in our house (very, very generous) but it is still not enough for our son. He refuses to speak to us or have any relationship with us, even when we "give in" (we've tried this route too). We are about to cut his hours down to very minimal as summer is here, and he will literally spend every waking moment on the computer or his phone, not interacting with people. For us, it seems the only way to "force" him to be part of the real world. I believe there are teens who can handle themselves responsibly on the internet (and we have some who do), so limits should be geared according
    to each child's maturity and repsonsbility level, not necessarily across the board.

  • The internet needs to be limited to teenagers especially.

    I know they care about taking selfies and posting them on social media or watching videos of inappropriate videos or pictures, but since around 2007 when the first iPhone was made, there has been nearly 90/100 teenagers spend there spare time on the Internet. Instead of this I think they should spend their free time doing something sporty, talking to those around you, hanging out with family and friends, or simply just doing something for the community. Don't be one of those teenagers who spend their whole day on the Internet, be one of those who are sporty, social (not on Internet just talking), and energetic.

  • Limited internet access.

    Teens tend to do the wrong things on the internet like blackmail, cyber bully, watch things they shouldn't and they will even hack. The internet can be a dangerous place if used incorrectly. Teens tend to put 'stuff' out there. Once it's out, it's out there forever, no take backs.

  • Help with homework

    Technology is far more advanced than it has ever been. It can help struggling kids go from a F in class to a A+. Sites like Khan-Academy, Crash Course, and so many more are helping teens understand what is going on in school. And for kids with mental disabilities, it can give them a different way of learning something.

  • Not adults yet

    Even though they're teenagers and they're getting to be almost adults, there are some bad sites out there that they shouldn't see. They aren't adults yet so they could still do things they shouldnt and get in trouble for it. All though most are mature enough to handle it some aren't yet.

  • Trust in them

    If you put restrictions the teenager can get the feeling that they are not trusted enough by you to go on the Internet. (word filler)h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h h

  • Limits Have a Worse Effect

    Limiting a teen's Internet will only encourage them to over-use it when unsupervised, or multi-task with many different screens. Multi-tasking like this has been proven to lead to attention problems late in life. Teens are very likely to want to use the Internet often because their parents limited their usage but they are at age where they begin to become more independent, and spend more time seeking out other teens. Social media platforms allow adolescents to find people like them, which can help when going through tough times. There are also plenty of ways for teens to write out ideas and share them with people who aren't involved in their personal lives to receive unbiased feedback. Often times, teens who don't have limits on Internet usage are healthy, intellectual, and social, opposed to those who have limits and spend virtually all free time bingeing on blue-screens.

  • Creative mind ,demonstrate the ideas

    Without the use of technology,children could not explore their brain in time as we can assume that the development in the education has been change than the decades.However, the teenager should have the capacity to maintain the time because if they could not maintain the time properly then it crates a issue such as they would lose their thinking ability.

  • Teens can handle themselves

    Although some may think that teenagers have "an innocent mind" teens these days are exposed to much more graphic content than adults know about. Teenagers have the capacity to decide what is okay for them to view because at some point they need to take on some responsibility. Moreover teens should not have limited access to the internet

  • Teenagers should know how to manage

    Teenagers should already know how to manage themselves and do not need an adult hovering above them to limit how much time they have on the internet. It might expand the kids mind's as well. They can learn about anything they want within minutes and that's important. . . .
