Hey, he is completely consistent in his inconsistency.

No, he's always consistent. Does it inconvenience him? Then it's awful. Does it not impact his life in any way, except for possibly inconveniencing people he dislikes? Then it's completely acceptable and should be lauded.

Yep. He is 100% completely self-centered. Probably a symptom of the same psychological disorder that makes him think he's an infallible prophet.

On the one hand apps like Screentime are your friend. The allow total control over who has apps are accessible, when and for how long.

On the other hand, I know parents who force tablets and phones on their kids because they are not interested in being parents. A ban probably wouldn't work, but I wish there was something that could be done. The kids I know like this lag behind their contemporaries in key indicators: social, emotional, and academic.

Yeah, it's called State Sanctioned Reproduction. I'm all for it.

Best post on this thread. When you can't limit your kids use, that is not parenting it is flat out ignorance.

Thanks. That's exactly what my pop would have done. Set parental controls for time limits on when and how much I could use, while leaving the actual phone part of it free for emergencies. But that cuts into today's paremts time they can flake out in front of the tube or watch pr0n on the net, right?

The point isn't whether or not I condone underage drinking. The point is that drinking can be a pretty serious thing. Studies show it does have a negative impact on developing minds (up to about 25 years old in fact). And then of course drinking irresponsibly can be dangerous to yourself and others (especially with vehicles). And yet underage drinking is still legally left to parental discretion (in Texas; not sure other states). I feel like smart phone usage is much less serious yet under scrutiny for more government control. It makes no sense.

I don't have kids so this is just me reacting to the debate. Parents should do the parenting that's common sense, but you can't assume that all parents understand this simple concept. We just need to look at our own youth. We all got to experience something that we technically shouldn't because some kid we knew pretty much raised him or herself.

Does this mean that the gov. should step in and put in place these types of rules? (up to voters to decide & get involved).

I do not and have never lived in the US, but I seem to hear many Americans say that society is going down hill and fast (comments shared by people in most countries). Does this mean the gov. needs to step in or are modern human societies capable of policing themselves when it comes to raising future generations.

It's one thing to let say banks regulate themselves and have the people pay to clean up the mess if it goes bad. When its the society thats broken, are we willing to assume the consequences and pay the bill?

My extreme example, political correctness: countries that generate terror don't apply the concept so death to whomever was being said openly for decades and now we have people blowing themselves up on a monthly basis. Would gov. involvement with laws against hate speach helped? I have absolutely no clue and that's natural extension of the gov involvement debate in this day and age IMHO.

My 2 cents, translating on the fly so sorry if its all over the place.

Would you call having a beer with your 20 year old son, who joined the military and is going to Afghanistan, crazy.

And why not limit tablet and pc access along with "smart" phones, who is going to enforce this.

The only crazy thing here is legislating it. Whats next, mandatory licensing and registration for perspective parents?

Socialist control freaks use good intentions rhetoric.

You ever met a socialist? Like a real life socialist?

Don't waste your time, he probably never even heard of Noam Chomsky, much less grasp the notion that what the USSR did wasn't socialism, that Bernie wasn't a socialist, neither was Hitler nor is North Korea or China and that real socialism implies decentralized decisional powers as much as possible, small cooperatives democracy style. That for there to be socialism, totalitarianism is a big no no, etc.

How can this be enforced? It's not even illegal for my child to drink alcohol so long as I, the parent, am there and the one providing it. But the government is going to tell me I can't decide to let my child use a smartphone?

I'm in Texas so this isn't applicable to me yet. But still. It's my job to parent, not yours Government nanny.

Not sure if trolling or not. There is a lot of "crazy" in this post...
He paraphrased TABC rules on underage drinking, the only thing crazy is your response.

Socialist control freaks use good intentions rhetoric. They live in a problem-filled world. Here is the rhetoric:

"They go from being outgoing, energetic, interested in the world and happy, to reclusive. They want to spend all their time in their room. They lose interest in outside activities."

How about trying another solution besides government prohibition? Truth is he has no solution so he uses the government catch-all non solution.
