Only if the parent ALLOWS IT TO...we are the parents, they are the children. We need to provide them with structure, boundaries and rules. It all comes down to expectations and standards.

Social networking is the thief of time. They should do it when they are older and out of school.

Yes it does! Kids these days are spending more time on facebook and IM's and it's taking away from their study/homework time.

Absolutely it does. But social networking (&texting) teach many helpful skills: communications, media, judgment, social. Kids must use these things to thrive.

Since I won't allow a Facebook/MySpace/Twitter page, the response would be no. Texting, well, that's another story (lol)

Of course -- moderation in everything seems to be the way to go. Just gotta keep on top of them to make sure the homework is priority after school.

I'd rather have my kids spending their lives on a computer, than out smoking crack with twenty, thirty year olds who only want to cause them harm.
