This is a growing concern among parents nowadays. You can take a conscious decision to disconnect your broadband/TV. I know it will be difficult for you. You can have an Internet USB device for your work purpose. Your child will express anger. At that time allow him to vent it out. go back to him when he is quietened and talk firmly and calmly to him why you chose to do so. If he promises to behave well then give him a treat. If he improves then you can regulate the usage. OR Be firm about your rules. Talk to him about it. Allow him to make his own time table to study, for play and for Internet. Let it not go beyond an hour. Monitor his usage. The computer/gadget /cell must be in a place where you can see what he is surfing. Set the penalty for disobeying too .Remove a privilege if he disobeys. When he sees that you mean what you say then he will change .. You have to remind him about who is in charge at home. Children at this age need authority but tinged with understanding. Do consider enrolling him in swimming/art/music/art/marital art/games coaching to channelise his energy and attention.
