In Parents Fret That Dialing Up Interferes With Growing Up – New York Times, parents are worried that their kids spend too much time on the computer:

In interviews and surveys many parents say that their children spend
too much time in front of computers and on cellphones. Some parents
worry that long, sedentary hours spent at a computer may lead to weight
gain, or that an excess of instant and text messaging comes at the
expense of learning face-to-face social skills. Some complain of having
to compete for their childrens’ attention more than ever.

Anything in excess is mostly bad for you, so parents should not be afraid to limit their children’s online activities. Internet addiction is real.

Children need to learn how to do things in moderation, hedonism is alive and well in today’s society. It reminds me of the 1980’s, where the motto was me, me, me, and if it feels good, you should do it.
