Women struggle, too

You need to add much more info on your website for women who abuse themselves on the Internet.

I am recently divorced, and my son is now without his mother because she became addicted to the Internet and degraded herself daily by talking to men online all day every day for over one year. It is not only men that have this problem.

Dear E.F.,

Yes, we know that women have this problem, as well.

You should know that men and women are totally separated on our site. Only members, who we verify as females, can see the female sections of the forums and chat-rooms. That is why you don't see it.

About 1 out of 4 of our members are women. We have many resources for them as well, see this page: https://guardyoureyes.com/resources/women Perhaps, your wife could be helped (if she is willing) by being directed to this link.

And don't forget, too, that you and your son need and deserve help and support. On our site, we offer resources for spouses. You may also look up live support groups, like S-Anon or CoDA.
