Stop Internet Addiction Before it Interferes with Your Child's Development

Stop Internet addictionIf you are a parent in America today, your children likely love spending time online, chatting with friends, playing games, browsing their favorite sites, and more. Yet with the rise in popularity of the Internet, there has also been increased discussion about overuse, especially when it comes to children. While Internet addiction hasn't earned actual classification as a mental disorder, it is still a very real phenomenon with serious side effects that many families are dealing with. If you're worried your child might be hooked on surfing the web, you might be wondering - how can you stop an Internet addiction?

The first step is accurately assessing the situation. Perhaps your child just likes going online a little too much, but doesn't have a serious problem. Speaking with a medical professional if you're worried about your child is clearly a smart choice, but there are a number of warning signs to look for if you are trying to stop Internet addiction, including:

  • Do your child's grades or schoolwork suffer because of their Internet use?

  • Does your child find life to be boring when they are not online?

  • Does your child often stay on the Internet longer than they intended?

  • Does your child neglect household chores in order to stay online?

  • Does your child form new relationships with other users on the Internet?

The second, and most important step, is figuring out how to stop Internet addiction. Again, your doctor is the best resource for helping your child overcome their addiction, but there are tools out there that parents can use to help. One of these is the Mikko Que, the most advanced parental control solution available that gives you the power to monitor and regulate your child's time on the Internet, TV, video games, and other multimedia and entertainment devices in your home.

To learn more about the Mikko Que and how it can play a role in helping you stop Internet addiction, contact us today.
