IAD ... What's that?

Hi Grade 5 Parents,
What is IAD? Internet Addiction Disorder. Here is a link to an online quiz to check if your child is in danger, click here IAD QUIZ
What do you do if you child has a high score?
1. Limit the time online - 90 minutes a day maximum in total with a break after each 30 minutes.
2. Make sure that your child is doing school work and not just playing.
3. Don't put your child's computer in their bedroom. An area like the living room is better as you can monitor their online usage more easily.
4. Learn to make a blog yourself so that you can better understand how your child is using the Internet.
5. Talk to your child about what they have done online. Know what they are up to.
