    I don't know what you mean by "developing the good habit of surfing the Internet". Do you mean "developing good Internet surfing habits"? Are you advising the Internet addicted to surf the Internet looking for a cure?

    Developing 'good habits' in limiting the time spent in surfing the internet is covered under self-control. Self-regulation? How do you regulate yourself?

    Self-control also means self-restraint or discipline.
