How to Prevent Teenagers from Falling into the Addiction to the Internet:
On a Panel Survey of the Problematic Internet Use of Schoolchildren in Japan
This paper attempts to find out how many schoolchildren are exposed to the PIU, and which factors affect the PIU in the long term on a successive panel survey we executed from 2015 to 2017 in primary and junior high schools in Maebashi city, Gunma prefecture, Japan. We attempt to probe relationships between students’ PIU and several factors such as their values, attitudes or their satisfaction with their school lives, families or friends. Through this analysis, we want to find out some clues to remove the risk before it becomes serious.
