How to Protect Your Child from Internet Addiction
- Encourage your child to only turn on the computer with a specific purpose. Browsing all day with no intended purpose increases the chances of internet dependency.
- Only allow the use of gadgets during internet access time or screen time, which should be a specific period that has been implemented and can be followed by the family.
- Set a cut-off time for internet use. There are apps and softwares available that you can use to alert you when your child has been browsing longer than allowed.
- Spending more time on outdoor activities and other hobbies ensures that the amount of time spent browsing on the internet is reduced. Encourage this in your child.
