David, I think the larger issue is not the Internet as much as it is "screen time." This is a generation that routinely has three screens going at once and has an tough time transitioning in the moment to human interaction (i.e. "clean up your freaking room!") I manage it manually (sometimes) by pulling the Comcast line. But that works only briefly until the kids jump on to a neighbor's un-protected wifi.
