Virginia Ironside’s Dilemmas: My daughter spends nearly all her spare time on the internet,

Dear Virginia,

My daughter, who's nine, spends nearly all her spare time on the internet, chatting to her friends – or people she thinks of as her friends. I have tried to limit her time online, but when I do, she gets into such a state that I find it quite distressing. She also says "everybody does it". Other parents I've spoken to don't seem to worry about this issue and say it's just how children are these days. Am I out of touch? I can't believe it's good for her.

Yours sincerely, Bella

Tim Lott: 'Julie has betrayed Jake for her own ambition'

I have been through something similar to Julie Myerson (who, incidentally, I know and like). When I wrote about intimate details of my divorce in a piece for Granta some years ago, I was attacked in The Guardian. More recently, when I wrote about the murder of my agent Rod Hall for Granta, I was bitterly criticised by some of Rod's friends.
