Many parents overlook the addictive nature of digital stimuli and the effects it is having on their teen.
In today’s one minute feature we shed some light on the addictive nature of digital technology.
The thought of our kids having their body and brain chemistries compromised by drug abuse and addiction is one of the most frightening thoughts a parent can have.
The debilitating effects of such biochemistry intrusions can alter our child’s life forever.
But, what so many parents aren’t aware of is the fact that video game and other digital abuse and addiction can be just as chemically debilitating as drugs — in some cases worse!
Thinking our child could be an addict is not even on the radar for most us. Why? Because we’ve never considered digital stimuli to be a neurochemistry altering activity — like drug abuse. But many in the know have compared hours in front of screens and keyboards with hours in the local pub.
