The abuse of new technologies to be used in moderation

"What worries me is the prominence of this kind of thing."

Laura, a mother, two children, 10 and 7 years old.

A problem for adults and children

One study shows that among 15 and 16 year olds who have gone through treatment for web addiction, about two-thirds feel they have lost control and suffer from self-esteem problems.

"Young people today are practically born with this. They grew up with the Internet, they've had Facebook accounts since they were 9, 10, 11 years old…"Danielle , coordinator in a youth center .

Sociologist Sylvia Kairouz, who heads Concordia University's Lifestyle and Addictions Research Laboratory, believes that new technologies are changing the way we communicate, changing our everyday lives in the process. Without wishing to over-dramatize or generalize, she says one of her concerns is the possibility that more and more people may be unable to invest in the "real world.

You don't have to hold anything back anymore. I barely know my phone number! I think we're regressing. David, a therapist in mental health.
