More the merrier IMO - keeps them away from the adult stuff that is rife on the internet. Plenty of time for that later.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Or maybe too much of a good thing:

I had a nintendo and a PC but my kid was limited to 30 min's a day on his choice of either one.....after his homework and chores were done.....and 1 hour on weekends/holidays. He got his first cell phone after moving out of the house as is true with any other electronics he presently owns.

I wouldn't, and didn't, supply my children with electronics. The PC and Nintendo were mine and if the kids didn't piss me off, then I'd share with them. If they wanted a cell phone or anything I didn't consider a necessity, then they earned their own money to pay for it because I wouldn't. I figured earning things would teach them how to value things appropriately while helping them learn a good work ethic.

If I had kids under 18 at home today (thank God I don't......LOL) they would not get any pads, phones or anything else electronic from me. They would earn it for themselves if they wanted it badly enough. As for keeping track of what my kids did online, I did that by putting my PC in a place that it was easy to keep an eye on. Also, I know a whole lot more than them about computers and they knew it. They knew they couldn't hide anything from me. So, the one time my then 14 year old son was looking at porn when I wasn't home, I busted him on it within a couple hours and grounded him off the PC for two months. He never did it again.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
