The Effects of Internet Addiction

Effects of Internet addictionClearly, the Internet is an amazing information resource and an outstanding entertainment outlet, but there has been plenty of discussion recently about the potential for overuse. Internet addiction has been the subject of much debate as to whether it is an actual mental health disorder, but regardless of its classification, it is a very real problem. People all over the world are battling their urges to continually log on and surf the Web. The effects of Internet addiction are extremely serious, especially when it comes to young children who are still developing.

Like most American families, your children probably enjoy surfing the Internet, chatting with friends, playing games, and more. Sometimes, children may enjoy going online a bit too much. You may have even had an argument or two about how long your child spends on the computer. But how do you know when the situation has crossed over into a more serious problem? Your doctor can tell you some Internet addiction symptoms to look out for, and doing so can help you stop Internet addiction, hopefully before it starts.

However, here are a handful of the effects of Internet addiction that may result from continued overuse:

  • Mood swings

  • Trouble in school, falling grades, missed assignments

  • Arguments at home over Internet usage time

  • A loss of interest in friends and other activities

  • Weight gain and possible obesity due to inactivity while on the computer

  • And more

Once again, your doctor is the best resource available if you're worried about your child's Internet use and preventing the effects of Internet addiction. However, if you're interested in creating a healthy, effective system for monitoring and managing your child's screen time on the Interenet, as well as the TV, video games, and other multimedia devices in your home, the Mikko Que can help.

To learn more about the Mikko Que and how it can help you teach your children responsible media management skills, contact us today.
