I know communication technology is a wonderful thing, and I wouldn’t have a job if it wasn’t around, BUT … a rehab clinic for children over 12 addicted to the internet and computer games.
Don’t get me wrong, I have sympathy with both parents and children in this. I would throw my toys out of the pram if my iMac and iPhone were taken away but addicted to them, I don’t think so. How have relationships within families got so bad that the police have to be called to settle a dispute when a teenager will not get off Facebook or Bebo?
The internet is a wonderful tool for information and amusement but it should never better person to person interaction.
