We were in our favorite watering hole this afternoon and got into a conversation with a bartender we know who works full time there. Anyway, it started by us asking if they had Directv or cable at the bar. Her reply...I have no clue. She went on about at home they have no cable, no Internet and her kids aged 11 & 13 have no phones. She went on to say that her kids complain they are the only ones in their classes without phones. I don't have a problem with no phones, but I think for safety sake, kids should have one. But my real question is without Internet at home, doesn't this put kids at a disadvantage for homework, research and porn-just kidding. They live in a rural area without easy access to a library. Not judging. Phones are expensive. Cable is expensive and so is Internet access. I have no idea what her financial situation is like. Just wondering if parents of teens have an opinion. Does not having Internet put them at a disadvantage in education?
