I want some advice for my son, who is in class 8th and is addicted to mobile phone.

Question: I want some advice for my son, who is in class 8th and is addicted to mobile phone. He will be on the internet watching TV series, videos (but not on social media), the whole day when at home during holidays or during free time. If I tell him to stop watching or try to take away the phone, he will become violent, start shouting and so on. So, kindly advice me as to how to help him deal with this mobile addiction. Teentalker's Parent , 50-year-old

Dear Parent,

Thank you for reaching out and sharing your concerns.

Given the era of technology we live in, it is unfortunate and natural to get addicted to technology, given the plethora of video content available online and easy access to the same. To top it all, your son is growing up with exposure to advanced technology all around him 'the digital native' versus you and the older generations, who started having access to technology later in life 'the digital immigrant'. So, there is bound to be a difference in the mindset as well as the extent to which technology gets importance in one's life.
