The complexity of any type of addiction and what problems come with it are vast and in need of research and discovery. This series will be informative and explain the very nature of the Sexual and Technological Addictions. Too often the beginning of a potential problem remains in the background while the damage continues without understanding.

In the social networking world, the multitude of avenues of communication has grown beyond what anyone considered possible ten years ago. Those who are in the Millennium Generation now known as Generation Net are taking over the airways.

The needs of these young adults is to get up in the morning begin texting and go to bed late at night texting. Instead of doing their homework they sit for hours and digitally talk to one another. If they are in the same room they will text one another keeping their conversations private between those in the room of similar age.

There is secrecy in the digital world which is naïve as if anyone was to obtain their texts their world would be destroyed. The need for confidentiality is a must for them to survive. It isn’t a requirement that these individuals have privacy, but sharing what they wrote isn’t part of the policy and procedures.

Someone where along the way the need to constantly be on their mobile telephones or computer communicating with one another becomes an obsession they no longer can control. They miss classes or try to text during class. Teachers watch for this type of conduct and have no problem taking someone’s mobile telephone from them.

Most schools have policies that mobile telephones are not to be used during school time, but having and maintaining the mobile telephone police is something, which is not reasonable, logical or financially available.

The need to use the technological devices creates a situation where parents are now arming their children with numerous gadgets, from X-boxes to mobile telephones. Imagine that a seven year old child has a mobile telephone and is now texting their friends. The purpose initially was to utilize the telephone in case of an emergency.
The lack of parenting creates a situation where the child is free to roam from their computer to the video games. These gadgets are now the baby-sitters of today, where yesterday it was DVDs. Now it is Blue-Ray and the revolution now on the fore-front is the 3D televisions and movies.

Technology changes every minute with new devices being developed, created, tested, produced, and sold. The consumer can’t get enough of the new gadgets which become available. When the i-Phone came out the stores which sold them had people lining up days before the sale and lining up blocks from the store.

The hype, which goes with the gadget, targets Generation Net who cannot wait to tell their friends that they have the newest and greatest technological toy.  Parents seem to have no trouble finding the money to purchase these gadgets.

In a world not so long ago, parents lived from pay check to pay check. In today’s world society must be paying for their technology before they place food on the table. The addiction to these gadgets is maddening. Generation Net is not the only ones requesting new technological toys.

Adults are no different looking for better ways to find a social outlet which will take them away from their mundane work days and problems at home. The need for something new and exciting no longer comes from finding a new friend or taking on a new hobby such as playing in a summer bowling league.

The world has become a technological nightmare where people have quit moving. Sedentary is the key word for how human beings have transformed from once an active society to a sit down society where fun is sitting on the couch focused on the next text or telephone call.

Parents must guard their children from technological addictive behavior. The exposure to these toys can be overwhelming and if not managed by adults the child will turn into a recluse who is willing to do whatever it takes to play or text. Whatever the child is exposed to they are willing to try and then the obsession takes over and addiction is the next step.

Opening the doors to new social networking such as Facebook and Twitter has created a madness where there is no one at the helm and individuals find themselves in a glass bubble. Technology is not the only addiction sweeping the nation. Due to the opening of the gates young adults are expending their time surfing pornographic websites.

Society of old where gambling, alcohol, and drug addictions led the way, technological and sexual addiction are the newest addictions to join the already established addictions.  The problem is most parents and children are not equipped to deal with these many addictions and are finding these addictions to be a revolving door for their children and themselves.

The need for counselors, life coaches, and consultants has never been so great. There will not be enough of them to treat or guide those whose addictions range from gambling to sexual addiction.

Although there is a realization that technology and sexual addiction are at the forefront of addictions there are many professionals working to help those who need the proper assistance. Now if society could only stop placing pressures on their family and friends to want the next newest and best toys.

Tomorrow, the research and information on technological and sexual addiction is abundant and there is a need to understand it and deal with it. Until tomorrow, think about how you and your children use the newest and best toys and for what purpose.
