How long do you let your teen on the computer? My daughter is on her computer many hours of the day. It is school holidays here in Australia and I can say she is easily on her computer for 8-10 hrs a day. She loves photography and spends hours photo shopping her pics, she also loves to draw and has one of those drawing board things and puts her drawings onto a art site she belongs to and she writes stories with her friends. When she is not doing this she is watching Youtube. Her computer is in our dining area so we can hear and see at anytime what she is watching, drawing or who she might be MSNing so I am not worried about her doing the wrong thing. I also think many kids today watch YOUTUBE like we watched TV. School starts next week and we have to cut back her computer time to a "normal" level, I just don't know what that is having only one kid. How long are your kids on the computer?
