Parents of addicted children and adolescents are the number one people to call for help. In my clinical practice, I work with parents on what I call “Net Negotiations” or parenting training on how to deal with kids and technology. Parents are dealing with something that many of us have not had to deal with when we were growing up. Those of us at certain age did not have computers or technology to this extent when we were children. The Internet wasn’t always a household thing. So, many of us are learning how to parent in the digital age. What does growing up with technology mean? What are the consequences or concerns we should have when children go online at four or three?
Net Negotiations helps parents with a simple, step-by-step strategy to learn: •How not to use technology as a babysitter. •How children can learn responsible computing. •How to stop the impact of addiction on your family (and your child’s Internet addiction). •How to identify risk factors in your child. •How to encourage your child to exercise and stay engaged in school activities. •How to identify the early warning signs of technology addiction. •How to find help if you think your son or daughter has a technology problem.
