New Digital Inequality: The Detox of Mobile Phone Addictions Among the Adolescents in China

Yu Zhang, Wei Ge


According to relevant data from the China Child Development Report, the use of mobile phones by children has become a common phenomenon. Many adolescents are addicted to the pleasure of mobile phones, which leads to addiction. Previous studies have focused on exploring the reasons for children's mobile phone addiction but rarely focused on how to control and correctly guide children to use mobile phones. But there will be new inequalities in how different parents control their children's mobile phone use. This question is important for understanding and bridging the digital divide among children. This paper attempts to clarify the important influence of parents on solving the problem of children's mobile phone addiction through interviews. It finds out that different types of parents have different effects on reducing digital inequality in the process of children's digital detox. It also called on families and society to pay more attention to the problem of mobile phone addiction among children and make concrete efforts to carry out digital detox to reduce inequality.
