        Yes, the goal of childhood is to prepare them for adulthood. All manner of things in the world should be shown to kids as soon as they are able to understand your explanation and trust in your judgement.
        Kids growth and maturity scales directly with how much they know about the world and how much responsibility they are given, but the capacity to develop fades to nearly nothing as they get older. That's why when you shield them until they are 18 you end up with permanent manchildren - a fate worse than death.

        Bro, the internet is about grooming children in 2024. It's not about freedom or responsibility, it's that their undeveloped brains are very vulnerable to grooming. That includes social media algorithms, "SFW" sexual content luring them to pornography, actual morons spewing bullshit authoritatively, etc.
        If you want to see how your approach works, look at tail-end zoomers and older Gen A kids. Addicted to porn since childhood, cannot sit quietly without a phone, ADHD/depression/etc, cannot maintain eye contact, acts out things from tiktok in real life.
        That's by design, their aim was to mindbreak the kid before he is even capable of reason. That way he cannot reason, at all, ever, and will always consoom and trust the Science.

          You're arguing off of buzzwords you heard from other trad marble statue morons and soccer moms you follow on the internet.

          Shielding them forever does not work. It produces stunted morons. You know what you do? You don't give them a fricking ipad at 3 years old and leave them from there. I am a zoomer. When I was 3 or 4 I was taught how to use the internet by my mother and by my older brother. When I was 5-6ish I was monitored carefully and eventually I didn't need such close moderation anymore. I was given a laptip around 8-9. I ran into some gore and porn at those ages but you know what I did? I stayed away from gorey stuff because I didn't like it.

          You don't have a porn addiction. You're a fat loser with a shit lifestyle and you cant take any reaponsibility for your choices.

            I'm a pre-9/11 zoomer
            The difference between the internet (You) and I grew up with and the internet gen a is growing up with is that the former wasn't the product of tens of billions of $$ worth of carefully crafted cutting-edge R&D israelite archon tech designed to hook you by the hypothalamus and keep you glued to the screen in order to pump the advertising-industrial complex churning at full RPM. If you seriously think OG runescape and idiots of garry's mod was comparable to UHD mobile phone roblox and literally infinite brainrot content served by israelitekok you're smoking frickin dog hair. Today's parents need to be 1000x more careful with the way they let their kids use the internet than ours did especially with state-sponsored mutilation propaganda running rampant

The internet, especially post-iphone, is just an obvious example.

We hate working and we build towards that where we fail in specific parts of humanity we find solutions that solve the problems. Its not about sticking to be some frickhead homosexual moron inwoods morons. Its about solving things forever. Eventually we will become ubermensch. What will this be? Who knows but to think just because we've solved slavery, hunger, death, or work that we've become weaker? moronic!

I swear its like zoomers just don't even THINK that anything came before them it is the strangest shit ever. Even when I was fricking 13 in 2000 I knew people were on the internet before then I actually looked into shit myself and didn't think literally everything I did was "new" or whatever the frick you are thinking.

            I was 12yrs old talking to girls on yahoo chat and I had a fat black women watch me jerk off on webcam randomly. I saw loads of 12+ selling even there own nudes to people for gift cards and random shit.

            Online predators certainly existed in the early days of the web. But the web wasn't fully saturated yet. Now every single kid has a phone or tablet with access to social media and online games, not to mention adult content - though that last one is starting to change with age verification.

            i agree with this sort of because most kids my age had a computer and unfettered access to AOL chatrooms yahoo chatrooms and so on. It was extremely common. The only thing that I think is different is now you have regular people say for instance some OF bot/women trying to get kids to view their content. You can see it all over twitter in unrelated circles. If someone wants to view 18+ content they will no matter how many hoops you put into place. Problem is frickheads FORCING it and not getting repercussions for it.

            I don't really think it's necessarily a zoomer thing. I think that perhaps more than anything the zoomers are the first generation to have the opportunity to go all-in on 'just before my time' culture. I grew up in the 90s and I thought stuff from right before my time was super cool, but I had limited ways of engaging with said stuff. Everything wasn't documented online, the only people hyping it up were older forum users who grew up with those things (and that's probably how I became interested) and I could only engage with such things in limited ways (e.g. there was no arcade anywhere near me, the only ways I could play older games were through ROMs on the internet, etc). Zoomers have everything at their fingertips, so they can (to some degree) actually check out the things we're hyping up.

I think that perhaps more than anything the zoomers are the first generation to have the opportunity to go all-in on 'just before my time' culture. I grew up in the 90s and I thought stuff from right before my time was super cool, but I had limited ways of engaging with said stuff. Everything wasn't documented online, the only people hyping it up were older forum users who grew up with those things (and that's probably how I became interested) and I could only engage with such things in limited ways (e.g. there was no arcade anywhere near me, the only ways I could play older games were through ROMs on the internet, etc). Zoomers have everything at their fingertips, so they can (to some degree) actually check out the things we're hyping up.

            the issue isn’t the fact they have access to it, it’s that they commandeer all the old shit, warp it, and mutate it until it becomes something it was never intended to be, bastardising the original meaning, all because they want the superficial “recognition” that comes from zoomers who don’t understand why the old stuff was cool in the first place. It’s low-key cultural marxism infinitely perpetuated & compounded by idiots. And why? FOMO.
            >bro i dont want to miss out!!!!!
            These kids are like israelites: they don’t create, only corrupt. Then oy vey when they’re ridiculed for it, like that regard zoomer who demanded c**ts stop engaging with him on a public forum. Zero accountability. Zero self-awareness.

            >i can; they’re terminally online
            i've been terminally online since I was 10 and im 38. There is something that is strictly zoomer to what you are saying and I don't think it has much to do with the internet (maybe a little).

            It’s a cultural problem. Unfortunately only the constituents of that culture can change it, or even hope to change it. But again, like this anon [...] said, they’re perfect little bolshevik conformists that would snitch on their neighbours if it meant getting an extra follower or two. They’re just not right in the head, man, and they’ve all got that brocolli-haircut perm shit going on. I’m 33, and i’ve been online most of my life, too, but these younger c**ts literally do not have any ability to think critically, about anything. Yet, they’ve all been given platforms to spout their inane moronic shit non-stop, kind of like the 24/7 news cycle but for complete windowlicking morons. Self-fulfilling prophecy, only the rest of us now have to fricking deal with it, too.

            Imagine going this long of a way to cope with getting old and having nothing to show for it.
            Your generation is not any better, no generation after the Industrial Revolution has been human at the core, it's all a skinner box and an insult to nature.
            But honestly, you are worse than a zoomer. You are a old, worthless, lead poisoned moron who desperately tries to claim any sense of superiority over a generation you fricked over. Zoomers have not yet done anything particularly horrid.
            >Why do you think we have so many remakes of all the good shit from our childhoods?? Why do you think they ALL fricking suck dick?
            Because your generation buys them, not zoomers

            this is such a massive zoomer cope its fricking hilarious. Its also hard to tell if this post was maybe baby boomer or zoomer. hard to tell.

            Additionally my evidence to support my claim is that mid-00's internet didn't have late boomers/early gen X'ers glued to a screen all day. Go to your local waffle house and check out how many paint-stained high vis-clad balding gray haired morons are just as deep into doomscrolling bullshit as their grandkids are. This shit today is completely different.

            Baby boomers having access have been the worst shit ever.

            The eunuchs cut their own dicks off because it was considered unfair for them to reproduce, since family titles were so important in Chinese politics. Being brainwashed into cutting your own dick off LOOOONNNGG predates zoomers. And who the hell is being "convinced" to kill themself? Usually it takes relentless bullying to convince someone to suicide, and again that long predates zoomers. You are fricking moronic Anon.

Before you know it, people will demand the government to actually do anything about the problems rather than passing laws to control our access to information and freedom of communication while pretending to solve minor problems they draw all the attention to (diverting the attention away from actual problems).

          Shut your b***h ass up, melodramatic homosexualron. You have no clue what the internet was like prior to facebook and twitter because you're a b***h ass zoomer with elevated estrogen levels and a panic response to the most minor of tribulations.

          How do we determine if this is a real phenomenon or just the older generation "back in my day" banter? I do believe it's true, based on my observations, but I'm wondering if there's actual societal clues.

          It's just millenials and older zoomers copying what boomers did when the 60s and 70s ended, they grew old enough to get into power, and decided that sex, drugs, and rock and roll should be restricted from all future generations because only they are special enough to deserve nice things.

      Yes, the goal of childhood is to prepare them for adulthood. All manner of things in the world should be shown to kids as soon as they are able to understand your explanation and trust in your judgement.
      Kids growth and maturity scales directly with how much they know about the world and how much responsibility they are given, but the capacity to develop fades to nearly nothing as they get older. That's why when you shield them until they are 18 you end up with permanent manchildren - a fate worse than death.

        You are so close to getting it. Children play with toys and games instead of doing the real thing because the real thing is too dangerous or inconvinient. Like maybe instead of making them play Adopt Me Trading give em a real pet. Maybe instead of dolls let the girl help out with a younger relative. Maybe instead of a shooting game take them hunting. Maybe instead of minecraft let them help you build a shed in your backyard or some furniture. Kids love doing the real thing. They love feeling grown up. They love contributing and being seen as valuable.

Zoomers catch flak for skibidi toilet YouTube kids brainrot bullshit that's more on Gen Alpha and the 2010-2012 Zalpha crossovers as an example.

      My parents gave me video games when I was a child though and found my way into the degeneracy around middle school but the exposure is just so much worse now.

    Keeping your kids off the Internet until they're older isn't really about keeping them away from messed up cartoons. It's about keeping them from turning into mindless zombies with no attention span and basically no morals. A lot of gen alpha kids are total morons that get raised on iPads and struggle with some of the most basic shit in school. They also engage in a lot of developmentally inappropriate behavior.

    Here's a reddit thread you might want to read that will be enlightening on the subject:

      >Here's a reddit thread you might want to read that will be enlightening on the subject
      Have you actually read the comments? Many are clearly identifying the problem as just shitty parenting. It's mainly learned helplessness because parents and other adults around them don't have the patience anymore to properly help them with things, so they just get whatever they want if they say they can't do something on their own.
      >I think #2 is intentional, because if they just play helpless they know adults will do everything before them. I’ve had students who actually could troubleshoot through a problem on their device, for example, when I talked them through (without leading, just narrating the process and asking what they’d do next) the troubleshooting process.
      >They won’t bother to try, instead just saying “it doesn’t work” because they know that adults will just give them a totally free pass. But I think if you push them, most could do things like this. It’s weaponized intentional incompetence, not outright lack of ability.
      and
      >I think there's an element of anxiety as well. They don't believe they are capable because they have no experience overcoming obstacles.
      and
      >But also, the ones who can't just have a conversation as they haven't been taught how to talk to a person as mom and dad probably put them in front of an iPad as they were too busy and they're too burned out after work to talk, so again, an iPad. On buses, they won't talk to or play with their kid, they'll give them an iPad. At restaurants if they go out as a family, they're again put on the iPad. I try and talk to my kids, it's like they're panicking at what to say, but they can probably communicate well enough in emails (without any email etiquette). Face to face conversations are so hard for them.
      Stay-at-home moms are sexism, everybody must work full-time. All energy must go to enriching the shareholders. If you've got time to raise your kids, you aren't working hard enough.

    The perception of melodrama among younger generations on the internet can be attributed to several factors. The internet provides a platform for self-expression and sharing experiences, which can sometimes amplify emotional responses. Additionally, the developmental stage of adolescents and young adults often involves heightened sensitivity to social feedback and a search for identity, which can lead to more dramatic expressions online. It’s also important to consider the impact of the internet on mental health, as excessive use has been associated with various psychosocial issues1.

    Here are some key points regarding the behavior of younger generations on the internet:

    Developmental Sensitivity: Adolescents are particularly sensitive to social rewards and approval from peers, which can influence their online behavior2.

    Mental Health Impact: Excessive internet usage has been linked to challenges such as poor academic progress, avoidance of interpersonal relationships, and reduced sleep duration1.

    Social Media Influence: Social media platforms can affect self-view and interpersonal relationships through social comparison and negative interactions, including cyberbullying3.

    Understanding these factors can provide insight into the behaviors observed online and highlight the importance of promoting healthy internet usage habits.

    i plan on heavily restricting my kids' access to the open internet.

    free access has been almost a complete negative for me. social media exposes you to the best and worst of humanity. for some people this causes them depression as they feel like they're missing out (that's how i feel).

    i'm not letting my kids have a smartphone or browse the internet until they're 14 minimum. maybe 16. it's funny because growing up i desperately wanted a computer and internet and resented my parents for not letting me have them. their reasons weren't noble - they were just lazy and didn't want to figure out how shit worked. but it turned out to be a good thing for me.

      Shield your children from everything. No harm should ever come to your darling. There is no reason for them to ever face any adversity or take any risks, because daddy is always there to protect you.

      And then she goes out into the world and, easily manipulated and curious about all that was hidden from her, she becomes a drug-addicted bawd, drops out and ruins her life. Good job.

          People learn from mistakes. There's definitely a balance to be struck here; the kid who gets into a major accident is crippled for life, but the kid who burns his fingers on the stove learns to be careful around heat sources. Facing such consequences may be painful, but never allowing a kid to frick up leaves them inexperienced and afraid of the consequences of fricking up.

          That's definitely far too restrictive. If they never get any freedom, they won't know how to deal with freedom when they do get it. Freedom comes with responsibility, and to handle the latter the former needs to be built up gradually.

      Weebs with internet addictions usually have not-well thought out contrarian opinions they hold really close to them for no justified reason.

      just don't give internet access to kids. it's that easy.

      And have them get filtered by jobs when they're 20 when they need tech skills? Your child needs to learn how to the basics of operating a PC by 8 or 9 including simple internet literacy, at least if you want to give them a good chance in any technical field. Plus, plenty of studies have shown the massive positive impact of internet educational videos -- it's essentially a free stream of highly stimulating but positive influences.

      In my opinion it's not as simple as "no internet until you're 13". To give them the optimum chance to grow, you gotta monitor their internet habits until 13 or so and preferably not shame them when they're first starting to get horny and search up "big tiddies tiktok". When you establish that even thinking about sex is bad, you're setting them up for a whole host of repressive sexual issues.

            No, but it's possible to severely reduce the chance for frickups by forcing people to think about where the objects end up being stored. It also provides nice performance boosts due to unified lifetimes:

    I'm a zoomer and I'm pretty sure it wasn't the internet on its own. Rather that many parents don't seem to care how much time we spend there and never taught or prepared us for anything.
    So your underdeveloped brain with a horrible and I mean horrible public education has to navigate grromers from all corners, fringe political groups, self harm trans discords, anorexic group chats, forums about people fetishising their mental illness, lookism obsessives and so on. And that's just random people. Now mix that in with hyper propaganda (from multiple countries mind you), bots, aliens, demons and cia agents everywhere.

    I can't bring myself to put blame onto zoomers and gen A considering all these tools could have been regulated on an individual level by better parenting. We failed an entire generation of humans and now we are witnessing the results of laziness. But blaming kids who don't know better is a cardinal sin, even if some luckily got out of the bucket. Survivorship bias is not a good enough argument to let kids be on their own. It's not too late to try and correct the course but boomers, millenials and gen x ers will need to take responsibility for it.
