Absolutely! There are many dangers on the internet. Having unlimited access is only inviting those dangers in. Many times children think they can handle it, but soon find themselves in some sort of trouble. Parents should definetly limit internet access.
Yes they should. Besides the danger, mentioned by Emiley, I have seen children become antisocial and withdraw. They seem to loose (or never gain) good interpersonal skills. Be it with other kids, or adults.
I firmly believe they should not be denied the internet altogether, but neither should they rule on the freedom to be on it as they want to.
A parents job is not easy, but if done correctly, can bring results in well balanced, healthy individuals. Discipline is nat a BAD word, nor is it a negative action. It simply seeks to establish good habits, not to punish.
Set internet times, routines, and guidelines, and the STICK to them. The worst ting is to disregard the rules you set up. If you need to disregard your own rules, then why set them in the first place?
Children constantly test the rules to see what they can get away with. A parents job is to take whatever steps are necessary to ensure a child's safety and welfare. Unlimited Internet access can be very dangerous.
Web sites like facebook claim to restrict child access but the really do a very poor jub. This leaves the task to parents to know what their children do on the Internet and curb access to unsafe sites.
