    Some thoughts on Internet Addiction are cultural; baby boomers often think their kids are addicted when they may be simply engaged in healthy use. Crossing the cultural lines between the generations is critical to understanding and treating Internet Addiction. Psychologist Dr. Ofer Zur and I discuss this, as the digital native and digital immigrant that we are, here: http://www.zurinstitute.com/internetaddiction.html

    Therapists may also be interested in the online CEU course on the subject of the positive use of gaming and Internet: http://www.zurinstitute.com/internet_and_gaming_course.html

    Like any tool, the Internet and gaming can be used for ill or for good. How we use it is up to us, as is the responsibility to teach our kids to neither fear nor succumb to the Internet.
