Abstract

This study surveyed aged 10 years and up to learn more about their online habits. In order to learn more about the online habits of this group, the survey asked questions regarding the frequency, duration, and motivations for respondents’ time spent online. The study also looked at high-risk behaviours like excessive screen time, increased social media use, and extended gaming sessions as possible indicators of problematic internet use. Indicators of internet addiction or reliance, such as a disregard for commitments in real life, emotional anguish when not online, and problems managing online use, were also analysed in the study. As an added goal, the research aimed to determine what motivates and drives children to engage in excessive internet use in order to shed light on what kinds of media, apps, or social networking sites are most appealing to children. The research aimed to discover how children’s internet use influences their school performance, health, and social and emotional growth. By achieving these aims, to shed light on the connection between internet use and addiction, giving actionable data that legislators, educators, parents, and medical professionals can utilise to address and mitigate the potential issues that may come from their children’s online use.
