In the following years it is more flexible at the weekend, but 1 hour per day is suitable. In high school, 2 hours daily is enough. According to the researches, 3.6 percent of young people between the ages of 12 and 18 are considered internet addicts while 21.8 percent of them are at the addiction limit.
