Responsible use

Using the Internet… without letting it take over your life!

The Internet can have a place in your life… but not your whole life! After all, it’s just one of many recreational activities!

  • A recreational activity should be fun for you. If it’s not, there’s something wrong.
  • A recreational activity is something we do for fun in our free time. If you feel like you HAVE to play, that you’re no longer free to decide whether you’ll play or not, your Internet use might be a problem.
  • It’s all a question of balance. It doesn’t mean you have to give up the Internet or video games forever, but just make sure this activity doesn’t become your only interest and damage your quality of life. If an activity causes more grief than fun… there’s a problem!
