Children becoming 'addicted' to computers
Barnaby Lenon, chairman of the Independent Schools Council, said young people’s reading and conversational skills were being put at risk by overexposure to modern technology.

He said parents should resist buying sons and daughters a smartphone until they are at least 15 and limit computer use to an hour or two a day.

Mr Lenon, the former headmaster of Harrow School, also called for the greater use of multiple choice questions in exams, saying they were an effective method of covering more of the syllabus and less susceptible to marking errors. ...

not-your-Pope, I think smart phones are being overdone – probably more by adults than by children. It is interesting to see the advertisement by Apple for their iPhone4s. it shows a child playing with the iPhone.

Well to paraphrase the saying, "guns don't kill people, people kill people." It can be said, "computers don't make ignorant kids, ignorant parents make ignorant kids."

Admittedly, talking to my computer to make this message, really doesn't help my spelling ability, but it does keep my grammar a little better than when I'm typing. (Yeah, it is also more entertaining. )

This is a little ironic, coming from a nation which once enthusiastically embraced the vision of keeping ankle-biters out of trouble by buying them a home computer – remember the BBC Micro & its companion, tax-funded TV show? Promoters of personal computing (even those w/o business motives) were messianic back then; they were going to take mankind to a whole new level. Now we're there, but still with problems, only different & more intractable. If you have anything like an office job, you can't escape computers anyway.

Another irony: computing at major companies today is just as overcontrolled as in the old mainframe era – you can't do anything w/o permission from the Operator.

Smart phone fees are too costly anyway; consider pay-as-you-go services instead, which can limit hours easily.

When you have 5-6 children because you're being fruitful and multiplying, who has so much excess cash flow that their children are carrying around smart phones?

This "addiction" may be a problem for the world who has 1.2 children, but for the blessed Christian, unlikely.
