Is My Son an Online Addict?
With technology used as often as it is in this day and age, it is hard to avoid the use of the internet. In school teenagers learn how to use computers and different computer programs. Teens are often required to complete their homework on a computer whether it is writing a paper or using the internet to conduct research.
However, when a teenager is abusing the internet he is suffering from an online addiction. When teens are abusing the internet, their lives in reality are greatly affected. Online addicts will neglect social outings, become withdrawn from activities non-internet based, neglect sleep to stay online, become moody, depressed and uneasy, and notice physical changes (such as backaches, headaches, weight gain/loss, carpal tunnel, and more) as well as a variety of other symptoms.
Online addictions can manifest in a variety of ways. Teenagers will often become addicted to gaming via the internet in games such as Call of Duty or World of Warcraft. Social media can also become an addiction such as constantly chatting with people via Messenger or Facebook. Online dating, online gambling, and visiting pornography sites can also become addictive. No matter how the addiction manifests itself, it is a serious problem that troubled teenagers need help overcoming and understanding.
