Banning: Games!

Okay, as much as I mock the need for this  I think it is a pretty good idea to ban kids from the huge internet games after midnight. For details, go read the Korea Herald article here.

I think it's missing the bigger problem: where the hell are the parents when the kids are getting online at 12pm? Don't they notice the zombie like attitude their children take on from sleep deprivation? It's fairly simple: don't let them have a computer in their room. If their phone has advanced internet capability (a fair chance) have them hand it over before bed time/homework time. If they are sneaking out onto the family computer at night and you are a heavy sleeper---password protect it or put a locking program on it that only enables use during certain hours.

Good initiative government but maybe you should offer some parenting classes too.

Being a parent, I too wonder about parents that don't parent.

Well you were never allowed to have a computer or a tv in your room until you were much older. No tv ever though.
