Keep in mind this ban is on kids up to 18 years old. Think back to your youth. Did you ever break a rule? I almost never let the rules of my parents, school, church, or government stop me from being extremely stupid and doing extremely stupid things most of the time. I don’t believe it will work out as the media is making it out to be. I do not believe that it is anything but a political mechanism that may be more for those outside of China then inside. At first I considered that it might be a way to get distracted students back to focusing on school work so China can have a better educated populace but that goes against that type of government control. Then I thought maybe it was just another way to brow beat the youth to accepting tyrannical rules and control so thy will be less likely to protest in collage, but these ideas seem very ineffectual and more than incompetent, and most likely to have an opposite effect. I have no idea what differences in internet access/governmental control they have compared to us but I can not believe that there is any system of control like what they are saying to be able to do what they are saying. I have 3 teenage grandkids that can make an adult account on pretty much any service/app they want, which would bypass any rules for children. My kids often tried that also way back in the day, even though I caught and stopped most of it (hopefully). I believe most of the kids in China will only be slightly affected by this at best, and the real goal of these global announcements have some other incomprehensible (to me) political or commercial true purpose that will come out eventually.
