lmao!http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/children/kidsafetyfaq.mspx said:The Internet is a wonderful tool for young people, especially for those who have difficulties with peer interaction. Computer-savvy kids can shine on the Internet because looks and athletic ability are not important, and this can help build their self-esteem. However, excessive computer use may further isolate shy kids from their peers or take away from other activities such as homework, exercise, sleep, or spending time with others. Parents and teachers are often unaware that there is a problem until it is serious. This is because it is easy to hide online activities and because Internet addiction is not yet widely recognized.
Establish rules around home computer use and try to balance it with more physical activity. Also, make sure your Internet-connected computer is out in the open, not in your child's room.
Finally, look at your own Internet use. Do you spend hours online? If you do, your children are likely to follow your example.
