Topic 1 Introduction

  • The aim of this Unit is to offer:
    • guidance
    • practical information
    • resources for parents to address some common issues related to problematic Internet use by their children (childhood/adolescence).
  • The Unit suggests management techniques for parents via real-life cases (scenarios).
  • Problematic Internet use often comes together with other disorders and problems (e.g., depression, social anxiety). Parents should be aware of this and act accordingly if they suspect other issues are the primary problem.
