An Internet Addiction Group, Center or Other Options - How Can Help Your Child Overcome this Problem?

Internet addiction groupAddiction is a term most often thought of in conjunction with alcohol, drugs, gambling, or other destructive behaviors. But one type of addiction you may not consider at first that has become a major point of discussion recently is Internet addiction. But is this really an issue? Do Internet addicts really sit in a circle at an Internet addiction group confessing their problems to one another, as if they were hooked on drugs or alcohol?

The answer isn't exactly cut and dry. The American Medical Association has yet to grant Internet addiction an official recognition as a mental disorder, yet that doesn't discount the severity of this problem or its effects. Furthermore, treatment options have garnered plenty of debate as well. Some of the old standbys for other addictions have also been used to combat Internet addiction, such as the cold turkey method, an Internet addiction group, and more. In fact, an Internet addiction center opened in Washington in the summer of 2009 that operates much like rehab centers for other addicts.

Regardless of the causes, definitions, or treatment of Internet addiction, the aspect most parents of children hooked on the Internet worry about is the symptoms and how they can affect a young person's life. That's because children are especially susceptible to the negative side effects of Internet addiction, as this affliction can strike them when they are developing the most.

If you are a parent worried that your child's love for surfing the Net may have crossed the boundary into a serious problem, contact your doctor. He or she can help you diagnose the true extent of the problem, as well as recommend options to help stop Internet addiction, such as an Internet addiction group. However, for further help in managing your child's screen time on the Internet, as well as the TV, video games, and more, the Mikko Que can help.

With the Mikko Que you can reduce the use of electronic devices by decreasing your child's time allowance over a period of time.  For example, in a given month you might allow your child 10 hours a day of use. Then, you can reduce usage to eight hours a day the next month and so on until your child's media consumption is more in line with recommended standards. This technique is less obtrusive and will result in less resistance.  It will also give parents the peace of mind that during sleeping hours their children are not up watching TV, playing video games, or surfing the Internet. To learn more about this innovative device and how it can help you teach your children responsible media consumption skills, contact us today.
