Letter: Limit computer time for elementary students?

Computers, or no computers?

Carol Meyers and her fourth-grade class at Fullerton IV Elementary School believe that fourth-graders should not be allowed on computers whenever they want.

Instead of sitting at a computer all day, fourth-graders need to be playing and being active. In the U.S.A., there is a higher percentage of obese children than ever before. One possible cause is lack of exercise.

The Internet can be dangerous for children. Parents teach children about “stranger-danger,” yet children often communicate with strangers on Facebook and other sites. Personal information can be shared and used by evil people to prey on children.

In conclusion, parents should restrict the amount of time fourth-graders spend on the computer and carefully monitor their use of the computer.
