 Here is one that has gotten a lot of attention lately - Facebook.  Is this good or bad?  Should parents limit time on it?  Why?

Kids today have access to more digital media than any other generation in history. Programs such as Facebook give children access to friends, school, celebrities and groups. The social networking site also encourages users to stay and play games, pitting users against each other in games of logic and skill. These can all be good things. However, too much of any good thing can be bad. It is vital that parents keep a close eye on a child's use of Facebook and limit the time and scope of the child’s online social life.


Social media purports to connect people. Yet, most people use Facebook when they are alone. Children are no exception. A Princeton study by Kaveri Subrahmanyam, Ph.D., et al. found a direct correlation between the increase in computer use and increased feelings of isolation and loneliness. When parents limit the use of social boards, it forces young people to contact friends in other ways such as by phone and in person. These more personal contacts keep the child’s real social network strong, reducing feelings of isolation.
