Problematic internet use


Hi EPS families,

Too much of a good thing inevitably becomes a bad thing and the same can be said for excessive internet usage.

The games that are developed these days are really immersive, social and fun, but can also be very addictive. Game developers have worked out ways to keep kids coming back to online games and this has seen a steep rise in the number of families reporting issues such as anxiety and depression that are linked to problematic internet usage.

The attached fact sheet from BullyStoppers gives you some practical advice on what problematic internet usage is and ways to talk to your children about the games they play. We hope you find it useful.

You can always reach out to our school on 9772 1393 to discuss how we may be able to help with your child’s wellbeing.
