It's the warm glow of those flat panels that keep you out of SAD. Seasonal Affective Disorder that also warps your version of idealism and Reality to something passive and indescribable. I stopped being active since 1997-98 or so right when the net was booming. Now I have little reasons to leave My parents house =)

In other news, crack addicts are sad and unhappy with without crack...
My kids don't use the internet much, and would be quite fine without it.

The Internet is already an essential part of modern society, but how do children have a degree of access to the Internet is a very difficult thing for social development, we feel happy at the same time, many children worried.www.hijewelryshop.com

Where did you guys find that picture of acidic?

...trolling aside: I remember when kids went outside and socialized. But times have changed. The internet, like nearly everything else, has its positives and negatives.

I think it would be more of an exclusion thing. It's worded as though 'You won't have the internet but everyone else will' type of thing. I bet if all teenagers were taken off the internet they would probably feel less lonely.

I guess growing up as an only child kind of negates the sad or lonely portion of this study. If anything, I'd say that I would be bored without internet, not sad or lonely. Those just seem like odd responses coming from kids that should still be in middle school or high school. They should have a lot of friends around them that they can hang out with, unlike people that are in college like me.

It also helps explain why they are all fat... They don't get out like they used to. So kids don't even know what it means to really play a sport, they think your talking about video games.

I disagree. One can eat a healthy, balanced diet and not become fat. Obesity and kids may be a huge problem, but it's not just due to lack of exercise.

You can just connect with so many different people online, so I can understand how these kids feel.
