That doesn't happen only in Australia, I guess. More and more teens spend more time online than with relatives or friends in real life. I also wonder why their parents don't do something, Sharon. Those kids should spend more time outside, living their lives and not wasting them in front of their computer! How can they be online from morning to night without getting bored eventually? Also, they're gonna have to face some problems, i.e. spelling mistakes (that also happens with cellphones and the way their type their text messages, they are hard for me to understand, you have to have a very good imagination skill to get what they mean. But that's another subject). I think there should be a schedule, for example no more than 1 or 2 hours online a day.
