Forget STDs and Violence; OMFG teh Internet!!!

Talk about off-loading the blame for incompetence on the part of parents onto others' shoulders.

The National Poll on Children's Health has found that parents rate the Internet as the most serious threat to the health of their children, greater than the threats posed by STDs, violence and neglect.

The hysteria mainly results from the negative press surrounding Myspace, Youtube and other "Web 2.0" companies.

Since this will almost undoubtedly result in new legislation against Internet start-ups, as Techcrunch points out, new innovative businesses are going to be hindered due in no small part to the utter incompetence of today's parents and their complete unwillingness to take responsibility for their children.

Note to Parents: Watch your kids! If you are worried about your child's online activities, monitor them! Teach your kids about safe Internet use. Quit expecting others to shoulder your burdens! Essentially, GROW UP!
