Navigating The Cyberworld With Your Child

Addictive Internet use is a relatively new phenomenon which many people are unaware of and subsequently do not seek treatment for. While there is no escaping the use of the Internet in schools and offices in today’s technology-driven world, excessive Internet use may lead to deteriorating relationships or interfere with life’s responsibilities. This book compiles a series of articles about the different types of Internet-related addictions that a child or teenager may face, such as pornography, social networking, gaming and online shopping. It also explores the legal problems that arise from cybercrimes and discusses the services and programmes available for both the victims and perpetrators. Finally, it explores the implications of future technology and research into this area.
