Are Your Kids Spending Too Much Time Online?
Determine If Your Child Is Spending Too Much Time Online
The Internet is fun for kids. They can play games, find answers to questions, create pages to share with others and they can chat with their friends. The Internet can be a very enriching experience for them but it also can become a problem if they are spending too much time online. Here are some questions to ask yourself, to determine if they are spending too much time online and if the Internet has become an overwhelming force in their lives.
If you answer yes to many of the questions, you may want to seek professional help to evaluate the situation. These questions are only a guide to determine if there is a problem with Internet addiction.
Has the Internet become an overwhelming force in their lives?
Has your child stopped socializing with their group of friends and started just socializing online with new friends?
Is your child only socializing online?
Have they stopped other activities?
Has there been a change in their personality?
Has your child stopped spending time with other family members?
Have their grades started dropping since they started going online?
Remember that any activity should be done in moderation. If they are only spending time on the computer and doing nothing else that a child their age should be doing, you should consider seeking professional help.
