Navigating the Cyberworld With Your Child
Addictive Internet use is a relatively new phenomenon of which many people are unaware, and for which treatment is often not sought. Left ignored, excessive Internet use may lead to deteriorating relationships or interfere with normal functioning in life. Navigating the Cyberworld With Your Child highlights the different types of Internet-related addictions that a child or teenager may face – such as pornography, social networking and texting, gaming and online shopping – and discusses prevention and treatment approaches. It also explores legal problems that arise from cybercrimes, and offers intervention strategies, services and programmes available for both victim and perpetrator. Finally, it takes a look at future technology and potential research areas.
