There is no doubt that children are their parents and teachers indulging in the Internet in particular headache because they have a kind of love can do nothing apart from the empty sense of helplessness. In fact, parents and teachers are not powerless, but too many errors that led to the plight of education. November 29, 2008, School of Journalism and Communication, Peking University should be invited to join me and six professors, Dr. Chun-Mei Zhao’s thesis, this is one of my deepest sentiment.
Standardized Test is very simple, as the editor of the International Department of China Central Television, PhD she spent serving more than 6 years time. Because the 10-year-old son obsessed with video games, so she chose a challenging subject, that “family environment on the junior high school students use video games influence factors.” I have been encouraged to Standardized Test the official publication of his doctoral thesis, and volunteered to write procedures recommended because of Standardized Test doctoral thesis not only has a high theoretical value, and a more extensive application, in particular, parents should be the general primary and secondary students and teachers learn.
Dr. Zhao Chunmei for the study of martial arts under the great general of the doctoral thesis can be five or six thousand words, but she worked hard to write hundreds of thousands of words. See her interview account:
In my interviews, most parents talked about how kids love video games and even obsessive, especially parents of children addicted group. A2′s mother described her son obsessed with the game scenario:
“Every day after school he would hurry home, hurry to open the computer, at noon to return home to play. And then after dinner or play, play to the final last enough time to go to school on the road. His education distant, riding ( bike) about 15 minutes. noon, so in the evening to come back too, jobs are not well written. “
As the fascination with the game is not homework A2, the teacher said, had enough of him to go home go to school, his mother also thought to play him at home two weeks he would have had enough, but the results did not look like she expected it:
“From then on home to play. Played a week later, the teacher called. I said to him, Ding call. I told him about? He played that game especially tight, simply does not speak, what that they do not go. “(A2 female)
Since then, A2 never to go to school all day indulging in the electronic game:
“March is not the school, ’51′ we moved here, to play more than a month, they play the” Three Kingdoms. “To lie in bed and play all day Pazainaer play, feel no sleep, no food eat. he played that game, talk to him jealous lot, actually, hurry it. and then there are two months of it, not the computer. he’s anxious jumped about. “
To be able to play games online again, he kept parents plead to. He repeatedly implored parents not stand, so I agreed to his request, did not think he dove into the Web game:
“He would constantly ask me, what kowtow ah, I really Mozhe had obtained. It right then. The Internet, you can never ever had. He told people to chat, play games, chat time with others . from the Internet two to three months, then said no, not going anywhere, and grandmother did not go home. “(A2 female)
Children to this point, A2′s mother is also very sorry, but then have no way to pull him out.
Such cases abound, then, who is the child what to indulge the cherished network? Dr. Zhao Chunmei told us about the use of electronic games and meet the theory. Schramm, etc. For example, in his book “Children living in the TV,” that, in the relationship between children and television, children are very active, they use the television, not television use them. Children are not being helpless victims of television attack, but as in a huge cafeteria eating rich food, like based on their needs at that time to choose their favorite foods. Electronic games as a child directly involved in the interactive entertainment media, can provide them with more forms of satisfaction, and therefore also more attractive to children.
Dr. Zhao Chunmei After analysis, summarized the children get from playing video games meet can be divided into five, namely electronic playmates, relaxation / escape learning pressure (escape), access control and a sense of accomplishment (Compensation), was attack to meet the (attack) and social interaction, and these psychological needs and their living environment in which has a very close relationship.
Concluded Dr. Zhao Chunmei four family environment, that is, family structure, family socioeconomic status, family relationships and parenting styles as a whole, on the junior high school students use of electronic games.
I am Dr. Zhao Chunmei on family structure and family socioeconomic status impact analysis, is there some doubt, but I think she on the parent-child relationships and rearing environmental factors, the analysis of two families especially profound proposal, such as parent-child relationship on junior high school students the use of electronic games has a very critical view of the impact, it is worth extra attention.
Appears in Dr. Zhao Chunmei, family relations, the use of electronic games on the junior high school students have a critical impact. Destructive conflict in the parents feel their children cope with poor, self-blame, caught in the dilemma between parents and married parents are unstable and can not get emotional sense of security, are more likely to play games to escape their troubles and re- get emotional security, and high levels of violence tend to play the game. Parental conflict also affects the parents to their children’s attitude and approach to a negative impact on parent-child relationship. Indifference or intense conflict, parent-child relationship the child is often very low self-esteem, negative way to treat yourself and others, lack of achievement motivation, academic performance and interpersonal relationships so often than poor offensive is also relatively strong. Parent-child relationship also affect parental discord supervision will also reduce children’s acceptance of parental supervision, and thus weaken the effect of parental education. These children addicted to video games more easily addicted and obsessed with the emergence tendency to play the game the higher the level of violence, and more attention to the violent game content. Harmonious family relations and child are emotionally stable, self-motivated, but also people-friendly development is good, the possibility of indulging in video games is relatively small.
I was so sure that Dr. Zhao Chunmei’s thesis, not only out of personal preference, but based on research findings. In 2009, we conducted the research problem youth Internet addiction, the research group members down to 2 Network Appliance institutions suffer harm young people and their parents, treatment for three-dimensional work of personnel interviews, group interviews and the depth interview Jin Qianren . The most important conclusion the study tells us that a lack of supportive interpersonal relationships are minors indulging in the Internet root causes. For example, minors indulging network relationships such as parent-child relationships, teacher-student relationships and peer relationships are more bad behavior than non-network injuries were more lonely, more difficult to talk with people first; particularly poor relationship with his father serious problems, exchanges with these children, relatively few common activities. Clearly, these findings with Dr. Zhao Chunmei conclusion is the same.
The purpose of scientific research is to discover and solve problems. Well, actually study how to prevent young people indulging in the network? In Dr. Zhao Chunmei seems to be effective in preventing minors video games addicted and obsessed with violent games and even the problems caused by the tragedy, can not rely simply prevent them from access to video games. After all, video games have become the most popular form of entertainment one of the young people themselves are not necessarily harmful, prohibited them from playing is unrealistic and unwise. Junior high school students use of electronic games to solve the key root cause of their video games to eliminate dependence of psychological stress, improve children’s living environment, first of all is the family environment. Parents should be working to build harmonious marital relationships and parent-child relationship, improve mental and physical health is not conducive to child rearing styles, give them enough love and encouragement, know how to discover and appreciate the advantages of the child, and timely and effective manner to help children solve the growing the difficulties encountered. Note also develop their constructive hobbies, reduce the appeal of video games on them, while making children find their strengths and potential to enhance self-worth and self-confidence.
Dr. Zhao Chunmei called age for junior high school students and other minors, the most urgent need is to change the performance evaluation of a child only “single evaluation system”, the establishment of multi-evaluation system, so that every child can be most suitable for their own development opportunities to realize their potential, achieve self-realization of the goal.
I believe that when readers read Dr. Zhao Chunmei friends after this book, there could be a minor issue of Internet addiction, many new insights, and would have the full responsibility of the researcher’s hard work feel cherished. Although I am engaged in youth for many years and rarely see someone special on the network of injury to junior high school students to explore such a depth, she was professional in-depth analysis and proposals are worthy of attention.
Video game use only one behavioral problems of young people, while poor family environment and interpersonal relationships are psychological and behavioral problems of children of the very important reason, so Dr. Zhao Chunmei research on prevention of other types of young people is also an important issue the reference value.
