Ban children using the internet

The internet is a global communications device, unfiltered it allows an Adult to view all forms of weird and wonderful ideas, history, philosphy, points of view and intelligent open realm for questioning the way we live today.

It is an open document of thought.


If we all children on the internet we will someday have to accept the fact that this freedom will dissapear.

yet Child protec More..tors of this world never raise an eyelid.

could it be that they're just to lazy to entertain their own children and allow them free reign in a realm full of dangers.

I'm calling for a petition against children under the age of 14 having access to the net.

  • You've confused several issues here. Stopping children accessing the Internet will not stop the over-zealous government policing of videos like Biggles' video.

    As strange as it may sound - Argos are not trying to protect children from viewing Biggles vid, they're trying to stop adults from seeing it !

    Rather than banning under 14s a better approach is to ensure that chidrens' guardians are aware of the dangers of the net.

  • Be sure to limit what search engines they can use and sites the can visit. Yahoo has one that returns kid safe websites.

    http://kids.yahoo.com/

    The problem is a parenting issue.

    In Biggles case, its just another example of police out of control. They are zealots with the only goal to arrest and punish everyone they possibly can. They are no longer about justice, nor protecting and serving the people. They only serve themselves.

  • I love Harry Potter!


    On a serious note, I have no problem with my son using the internet. Of course that's only when I'm around. Thank you for attempting to raise my child for me, though. Do you work for a Government agency of some sort?

  • So why not ban trees because kids could climb them, fall off, and get hurt?

    If a child is smart enough to understand the dangers of tree-climbing, why is the internet any different? The child still wants to climb that tree despite the dangers, and will have to make up his/her mind.

    In other words: BEWARE OF CENSORSHIP DISGUISED AS HELP FOR THE WEAK

    • Right! There's a big reason NOT to allow internet censorship. Net access means money, money to pay for the net means plastic. Do kids own plastic? (credit card etc.)? Usually not, or if they did, an adult gave it to them. So if a kid has net access it is because an adult gave it to them. The adult should monitor the kids net time. Alot of parents/guardians don't. I say, i dont care, and so what anyway? Is that my problem? Should MY internet be censored to "protect children"? More..

  • for instance the little click here if you are 18 to enter on porn sites, that sure keeps them out. Even Historical value If a President were to address the kids, maybe all he should do is get the children interested in how a bill becomes a law and the processes many here don't fully understand that process.

  • One word sums it all up. FREEDOM.

    • "Freedom" does not apply to children.

      It is a concept for adults.

      Children are allowed far too much "freedom" these days and are really out of control.

  • When I was young, I used to ask my parents questions and they would tell me to go look it up in the dictionary or encyclopedia, and often the answers were no there for me. I think kids are lucky to be growing up in this time, were you can go online and learn about almost anything in the world. We should be spawning a generation of young geniuses with all this information available to them. Sure, there are terrible things on the net, but kids can't be sheltered from every disturbing thing in t More..
