help!  My son is so addicted to computer...computer games at that. Di na nga nag aaral eh. I even put parental control on the pc. Pero on the time na pwede siya maglaro ayun nakatutok at di na umaalis sa harap ng computer. Kanina nga nakatulog na siya sa harap ng computer eh. Ano ba magandang gawin?

Naka-relate ka ba? Mag post ng katanungan o payo dito

Limit mo sis yung time frame niya sa PC, like you can set it as a reward, study first and finish all his homework for the day and then that's the time he can use the PC but may limit pa din. Talk to him and make him realize his duties first and then maybe spend more time and have at least a family moment with him maybe on weekends para naman you could have more interaction with your kid. Mahirap din kasi ang tutok sa games esp. if it contains violence may chance pa na he might get isolated sa real world kaya make sure ka lang din na he interacts with everyone (friends and family) and maybe make him join sports too para medyo ma-divert yung attention niya with other things. Goodluck mommy..  :)

How old is your son po? Mine is turning 4. Nakakagulat na ang generation ngayon ang bilis matuto. He learned to use the PC when he turned 3. Ngayon nagugulat nalang ako kasi ang dami na niyang controls na alam without me teaching him.

I give him a warning before I stop him like "last 2 minutes" or deny privileges pag hindi siya sumunod. As for my 7yo daughter, I make sure her assignments are finished and I check kung tama ang ginawa niya. Dati kasi, basta matapos lang para makapag computer. Bukod sa schedule, dapat din may rules. They need to know what is more important like eating, duties at home, etc. If playing with the computer causes them to overlook these, then hindi sila pwedeng gumamit. Lesson ito that they need to learn til they become adults.

May password din ang computer. I still have to figure kung may pwedeng i-set na auto shut off. So far namomonitor ko naman ang gamit kasi nasa house lang ako.

thanks for your suggestions mommies! I'm always at work kaya mother ko naiiwan sa anak ko. He's 8 years old and may katigasan ng ulo. Tomorrow, back to school na. I'll do what you've suggested.

hi sis Unica Hija, happy new year! di na naman tayo nagkita, nasa CDO ako ng 2 weeks:(

 sis ka age nga lang pala Josh natin at parehong gadget/computer addict :o..


Josh ko kahit computer addict na cocontrol naman ng mader ko, may schedule talaga kung kelan sya pwede..like pwede sya mag computer pagdating sa bahay from school.. (weekdays 3:30-5pm) 5-7pm tapos na niya homeworks niya and review ng konti and sleep na sya 8pm.. lunch time sa school kasi sya nag study with his tutor kaya may free time niya na ang hapon para mag enjoy as kid:) weekend naman starting friday afternoon and sunday 5pm pwede sya maglaro.. di namin sya pinagbabawalan pero sinusunod talaga strictly ang sked kasi lalong higpitan lalong naaddict, nakikita naman namin na nagsasawa rin ;D..

pero if exam week wala talagang PC/PSP or any games at alam niya at sinusunod naman niya ;)

^kilala ko ang baby na yan!!! kamukha mo na sis, sabi ko nga, especially in that pic. he has your look and smile.

try watching the movie, RPG (yung sa MMMF) movie nina santino nung christmas. for me, it is a portrays just the right balance on playing the computer, and playing outside and being involved with the real world. panoorin mo muna mommy, and see for yourself, if this movie, imparts the value that your son might get.

I recently attended a Parenting Seminar conducted by Mr. Sonnie Santos (you can google him).
He put up a website http://websafetyforparents.org/ Listening to his lecture. Etong thread na ito ang nasa isip ko and can't wait to share with you what I've learned.


There's this program called Parental Control Software by Norton
https://onlinefamily.norton.com/


With this, you can monitor you kid's use of the PC, even has a time blocker so you can manage your kid's computer time. There's more than just that.  You can block websites that you don't want him to go to or let the system block all websites they know can be harmful, you can also monitor which websites they visit.


I haven't tried it yet kasi I can personally monitor my kid's use.
Two important things I want to share that I learned from the seminar, "Keep the PC at a common place at home." This way, the kids can be monitored. Second, do not share infos about the family, you can never tell when someone wants to strike you. If they can't hit you, they can google your kids.

HELLO!  tamang tama, i'm taking up cyber safety awareness as my thesis, i would just like to know your views and opinions about this matter.
https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dFM2RExDR19iZnVhbUR4QWtsekNqV2c6MQ

I want to create an advocacy po kasi for teens about cyber safety awareness. much like the "think before you click" campaign of GMA7 pero mas broad yung range. gusto ko rin makinig ang boses ng mga parents in regards to this matter. maraming salamat po sa inyo  ;D

I cannot say that my 4-year old daughter is addicted to computer, atleast not yet. She likes Nick jr. and Disney junior sites. She spends about 30 minutes playing and watching her fave games which are all about numbers, coloring, shapes, etc. Moreover, she even knows our PC's password and knows how to go to the website all by herself. She can turn-on and off the PC properly. But still as a parent I don't want her to get hooked. So, I constantly monitor her and even reminded her that she should spend time reading her books. So far no problem yet. Thanks for the safety tips mommies.  :)

Limit his use of the computer. Maybe 1 hour a day. When I was young, I could not watch TV during school days. Which is why I used to read a lot back when I was younger.

It's all about setting boundaries and teaching kids that there is a proper time for everything :)

My 8 years old daughter, Jodee is addicted to iPad naman. Pa'no kasi yung Daddy niya, binilhan bilhan pa siya! Ngayon, pati pag-tulog, katabi na niya yun. Kinukuha ko nga, pero ayaw naman ibigay, mag ta-tantrums lang. Pero siya naman, she never forget her studies. Pinapagalitan kasi siya ng Daddy niya if she got low grades at kukunin yung iPad niya.
