Problems:

  • Your teen may seem to spend hours on phone, texting, talking or simply playing.
  • Adolescents addicted to the internet tend to have fewer friends and a less active social life. They lead solitary lives and are happy browsing the internet for hours. (2)
  • Addiction to cyberspace also cuts short their physical activities, resulting in an unhealthy and sedentary lifestyle.
  • Internet addiction adversely impacts academic performance.
Plan your internet sessions.  See What Wikipedia Has To Say

Solutions:

  • Do not assume that your child is addicted to the internet just because he or she spends a lot of time in front of the computer. They could be doing more productive things on the system other than surfing the net.
  • Do not say ‘no’ to the Internet. That will only make them adamant. Instead, talk about your concerns and help them work on other things that do not require a computer.
  • You could use parental controls, but that may not be taken well by your teen – remember that they are not kids anymore. At the same time, they may also not have the judgment to make the right choices. So guide them as a parent, but never decide for them.
  • Enroll them in activities that encourage them to interact with others. Have family activities that will make them want to spend less time at the computer.
  • Have some cyber rules and boundaries for everybody at home. Limit the use of the mobile phone to a few hours in a day, and avoid bringing the phone to the bedroom as it is likely to affect a person’s sleep.

How do you deal with this problem? Please give us some suggestions.

    got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you
    a quick heads up! Besides that, fantastic blog!

    for forgiveness. on Google. Plus personal personal web sites are
    Chimps are not choosing to maybe not advance their technology, they -can’t-.
