Break The Computer Addiction Of Filipino Youth

Computer addiction could be very alarming as told by the experts in Human Behavior, but have they asked why the children of today is pulled into the game? Is it for companionship? boredom? or refuge?

In online games, you can be you the way you want yourself to be. You can standout the way you want it, evolving into options that are not socially acceptable in real life. Filipinos are conservative by nature, but online they can be as liberated as other countries. Online games became the breathing space of Filipinos, not just the youth but everyone who gains internet access. Boredom may play a small role in the reasons, but it could still count. The sun is up, rather than playing basketball, you engage yourself into battle with other players with awesome sword fights and spell casting. This boredom almost made our "national street games" like piko, tumbang preso, and shato extinct.

The youth of today, without being bias or one-sided is considerably weaker than the earlier generations. They tend to stumble on the lightest of problems, and crippled on the slightest of mistakes. Online games became a staple "point of refuge". Our country is a natural disaster playground. We have typhoons, volcanos, and man-made disasters all year round. Some individuals may lose hope because of this but others actually divert the fear and condense it into a whole new world found in cyberspace.
