Out of the shadow of “Internet addiction”
(1) “Children have upward minds” A book, a report meeting, caused a lot of sensation in Changsha, that is, “Children have upward minds” and Professor Tao Hongkai’s “Quit Internet Addiction” reportmeeting.
Professor Tao is a well-known expert in quality education in China and a specially appointed professor of Central China Normal University.
He has toured around the country since the second half of 2004, held a “Quit Internet Addiction” report, and organized training for volunteers, which has had a wide social impact.
He wrote a set of practicable ways to help children quit Internet addiction, a book entitled “Children Have Upward Hearts”, published by Hunan People’s Publishing House in January 2005.
As soon as the book hit the market, it was warmly welcomed by readers.
On February 25, after the news of Professor Tao Hongkai’s long-term holding of the “Exit Internet Addiction” readers’ report, 450 tickets were sold out immediately.
On the morning of the 27th, when the reporter came to the venue, I found that many parents were already waiting outside the door, and I found out that the parents who had not received the tickets but were still waiting for the rain to come outside the venue with a glimmer of hope.
The report will be in progress.
When Professor Tao talked about parents’ different attitudes towards children in high school, junior high school and primary school, the 17-year-old “networm” Jiang Zhi (pseudonym) raised his different opinions.
Tao immediately invited him to come to the stage to communicate with his father and grandfather.
Professor Tao didn’t go directly to the topic, and first said, “Would you like to talk to me?
“Do you think parents of middle school students should worry about their children playing computers?
Asked Professor Tao.
“Because they will become as inseparable from the net as I am.
“The audience laughed.
“So how did you come here today?
“Jiang:” Dad called me here.
Professor Tao asked, “Why did dad call you here?”
“Hope you can help me.
“Less than an hour of live conversation, the child who had truanted school for the Internet and often stayed away all night said sincerely:” I will definitely quit Internet addiction and study hard.
“The briefing ended a long time ago, and many parents with sad faces still don’t want to leave around Professor Tao for a long time.
(II) “Internet addiction” is fierce than tigers. Addiction of young people to the Internet has become a social issue that people have paid close attention to.
Of the 84 million Internet users in China, 16.5 million are under 18, accounting for 19%.
Not only do they love the Internet, they are fascinated and addicted.
A survey showed that 62.9% of the young people who went online had personalized emotions, 20% of them had low moods and loneliness, 12% of them were alienated from family and friends, and 5.1% of themPhysical health declines.
The internet addiction among teenagers in our province is also quite serious.
Here are a few materials provided to us by Hunan Quit Internet Addiction Volunteer Studio.
A 14-year-old girl, Wang Fang (pseudonym), has divorced parents, has no intention to learn, does not talk to her mother, often runs away from home, and likes to play games online.
He had a boyfriend who had the same experience as Wang.
The Internet has become one of the main ways for them to obtain their psychological needs.
Qiang Zhang (pseudonym), 24, was a student at a university who was dismissed in 2004 because he was addicted to the Internet and had no intention of studying.
I have been out of college for more than a year and have no job, I like to write articles, chat, fall in love on the Internet, and multi-party help is invalid.
Wen Feng hates living at home. When he was in second grade, he had an unsuccessful love.
Secretly surf the Internet for 2 to 10 hours every night.
I like to play games and chat on the Internet, and have no interaction with my classmates.He believes that there is no pressure on the Internet and a sense of accomplishment.
These survey data and cases are startling.
Internet addiction brings endless harm to families.
When passing by Internet cafes, people often see such amazing scenes, children are dragged out by parents from Internet cafes; some parents even kneel in front of children in order to let their children get rid of Internet addiction.
Looking at these simple and kind parents, people have a lot of sadness in their hearts.
Internet addiction has also caused many social problems.
“Internet addiction” is devouring our changing ideals and passions.
(3) Who should fight with the “Internet addiction” board and what is Internet addiction?
In some literatures, Internet addiction is called “Internet Addiction Syndrome”, or “IAD” for short.
There are two main aspects to the description of “IAD”. One is that Internet addicts have certain behaviors, such as out-of-control of network operations, and can increase the enjoyment of fun.
Patients are more indulged in free talk or online interactive games, while ignoring the existence of real life.
The second is the effect of this behavior on the mental state of addicts.
Cognitively, the longer you spend playing online games, the worse your abstract thinking, logical thinking, memory, and attention.
Emotionally, it will become more and more low, lower, and less confident.
In fact, surfing the Internet is not a bad thing, as Professor Tao said: “What do you think of a computer as?
Toys are still tools.
Professor Tao believes that it is not a mental illness or a physical illness that causes people to become addicted to the Internet. It is a habit formed by a strong interest.
However, there are also very few people who have mental problems. The symptoms after Internet addiction will definitely be a psychological problem.
In the process of youth growth, families, schools, and society each play different roles and play different roles.
Internet addiction is also inseparable from these factors.
Professor Tao Hongkai said, “Two years after returning home, I feel that the problem of family education in China has become a serious problem.
“In most families in China, the relationship between children and their parents has become a relationship of solicitation and giving, without peer-to-peer communication.
Other parents’ thoughts of “seeking a child to become a dragon” and “seeing a woman to become a phoenix” are too strong, which brings a great spiritual burden to their children.
At the same time, objective factors such as financial difficulties, divorce of parents, and domestic violence in some families may cause unhealthy psychology of children.
School is an important place for children to grow up.
Although quality education has been promoted for a long time, China’s current basic education is still typical exam-oriented education.
Examination-based education leads to student-to-school scores and school-to-school progression rates.
As soon as a student enters primary school, he is educated to enter a key middle school; when he enters a key middle school, the goal is to be a key university.
This seems to be all the purpose of learning.
Bad social culture is also quietly penetrating into children’s hearts.
Some worship stars, pursue fashion, compare material life, etc.
If a child’s Internet addiction is a disease, the cause is not in the child.
(4) More volunteers like Tao Hongkai are needed to save and save children with Internet addiction. It is not enough to rely on the strength of Professor Tao Hongkai alone.
As Professor Tao said, “I only promoted one part in 1.3 billion.
“The Hunan Internet Addiction Volunteer Volunteer Studio was established on October 31, 2004 under the guidance and guidance of Professor Tao Hongkai.
This is also the first purely public welfare institution in our province to serve the work of quitting Internet addiction.
The studio’s staff are recruited in the form of “volunteers”, and the entire process of service for help seekers is free of charge.
Adhering to the spirit of “love and helping others, pragmatic charity,” they adopted face-to-face corrections and telephone consultations to accept help from internet addicts and parents across the province and across the country.
Since its establishment, the studio has received more than 1,100 visiting cases and over 900 telephone interviews.
In the province, there are Changsha, Zhuzhou, Xiangtan, Ningxiang, Yiyang and other cases in the province. Telephone consultations come from dozens of provinces and regions such as Hubei and Zhejiang.
Their work has significantly improved the majority of clients, and has received unanimous praise from the society, especially their “volunteer” spirit is deeply rooted.
“After accepting our help, many parents took the initiative to give money to the teachers and students they received, and we declined them.
When they were told that our services were free, they were all repeated and moved one by one, “said Shi Tieer, director of quit internet addiction studio.
The establishment of the “studio” can bring the gospel to those patients and their families who have Internet addiction but cannot quit independently.
In the 2004 selection of “Top Ten Public Welfare Events in Hunan,” they were called “Top Ten Public Welfare Events in Hunan.”
On February 26th, Professor Hongkai Tao spoke highly of the achievements of Hunan Internet Addiction Volunteer Volunteers. He said, “After leaving Hunan, I will publicize the report every time I go.And promote your approach.
“Hunan Quit Internet Addiction Volunteer Studio wrote in a report they completed in February,” Because the staff are not full-time staff, it is impossible to have enough energy and devote time to this work.
The difference in the level of personnel structure is also not conducive to the long-term development of the studio.
“Yes, this team is still too small. To save so many children with Internet addiction, more people with deep social responsibility and solid social psychology professional skills are required to join, and more like volunteers are needed.An agency like a studio.
(5) A system engineering merger. Our province has done some work from the provincial party committee and the provincial government to the relevant departments to create a good alternative for youths to “exit Internet addiction.”
At the beginning of 2004, after the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council issued “Several Opinions on Further Strengthening and Improving the Ideological and Moral Construction of Minors”, relevant party committees and governments of our province and relevant departments attached great importance.
The education system proposes to further strengthen the main channels, create a large environment, and do a good job of ideological and moral education of young students.
The cultural department organized the “Sworn Farewell to Internet Cafés” activity among primary and middle school students, and also focused on strengthening the use and management of public cultural facilities. From May 1 last year, the province ‘s patriotic education bases, museums, and memorialsThe museum is free of charge for group visits of minors.
The public security department has stepped up legal education for minors; severely cracked down on crimes against minors, and also created “youth rights protection posts”. At the same time, it has strengthened the comprehensive management of social order, centralized management, and optimized the surroundings of primary and secondary schools.surroundings.
The science and technology department launched multi-channel popularization of science popularization, strengthened the construction of popular science popularization websites, and freely opened youth education bases for minors . In terms of network governance, our province launched a centralized rectification of Internet cafes in the province last year.
Since the implementation of the special rectification work, accumulated black Internet cafes have been found and banned, and the distribution of Internet cafes that do not meet the legal approval conditions has been ordered to suspend business for rectification. There are too many Internet cafes, and the situation of vicious competition has improved. The problem of illegal use of minors and expired business operations has been solved.Better solutions. Harmful information such as pornography, violence, expenditure and ignorance spread on the Internet has been effectively managed. Internet cafes and other Internet access service business venues have significantly improved their operations. The whole society has gradually monitored and consciously resisted Internet cafes ‘illegal operation.strong.
The achievements in the special rectification work of Internet cafes have been fully affirmed by the people, and they have praised the party and the government for doing a great job for the healthy growth of young people.
Helping the shadows of juvenile delinquency networks is a comprehensive, systematic, and deep-lasting project.
It requires the cooperation of families, schools, the media, experts, social education resources, and government agencies.
We expect teenagers to shift from being addicted to the Internet to pursuing all kinds of beautiful things, and moving to the normal life track.
Let the whole society join hands to help our teenagers quit Internet addiction and create a better future!
