We are living in the era of the Internet without a “surgeon general’s warning” on our devices to inform us of any potential negative side effects. The Internet has provided us with 24-hour access to activities and interactions that could lead to online addictions, cyberbullying, and online affairs.
Individuals are struggling and relationships and families are being torn apart due to betrayal, job loss, crime, a lack of self-esteem, a need for immediate gratification, financial ruin, academic decline, and online safety issues.
Your loved one picks up their phone, turns on their computer, or starts to play video games and you start to ask the following questions:
Why do they have to watch porn so much; am I not enough?
Why can’t I get my child off this video game?
My child is tortured by other kids bullying them online, how can I help?
Is it cheating when they are direct messaging and liking their ex’s pictures on social media?
