Gates the Younger Not 'Net Addicted

Bill Gates may have the OS, the browser, Web services, games and a whole bunch of sites, but that doesn't mean his kids can spend all day in front of a screen. Gates and his wife strictly limit the amount of time the kids spend online.

Like any other average parent, Gates says the kids can do whatever they want -- once they're 18!

Do you limit your kids? If so, tell us how at [email protected].
