I've talked to so many parents who say that their children are addicted to Facebook. Their children get home from their after school activities, eat dinner with their families, and then go on In-Your-Face-book to catch up with their friends, some of whom they may not have seen for three whole hours.
As a result their homework gets put off till 9 or 10 PM, and if they are assiduous about finishing it, they don't get to bed before midnight. If children don't get their eight or nine hours of sleep, their growth, their health, and their concentration during school will all suffer. They might as well be club kids, hanging out till all hours in the nightclubs.
Congress should pass a law making Facebook illegal on weekday nights. Unlike the health care bill, this one would have the support of the American people -- at least those of voting age.
I've tried to pass such a law in my house but don't seem to have the power to enforce it.
