Quoting Mama Massa:" :!: My husband is addicted to video games and cannot sit and focus on one thing. He played World of Warcraft ... [snip!] ... video games in the future because i see the effects it has in the long run. The Wii doesn't seem like such a bad idea though."


Yes, my 14 y/o son will play all day and all night if you let him. He is really addicted to his Xbox 360! He wont eat or drink while playing either. I am hoping he does not end up older and doing these things. My so thinks we should take the game away altogether and not let him play it because it has became such an issue in our household. I would rather just put restrictions on it and let him play a certain amount of time a day. He is 14 now and through the summer very little restrictions were put in place for his games. Now that he is going back to school he will have major restrictions that I am hoping to keep throughout the year. He has GOT to do something other than play these games. There is a whole other world out there that he knows nothing about. REALITY. And he needs to live in reality...real life. Life isn't one big XBox game. My son has a lot to learn.

yea i dont think taking away the game completely will benefit anyone but some restrictions should help. My husband and I have fought for years over the games and i just didn't understand at first whey he "needed" the games. He didn't even realize it. He can't even sit through a whole movie anymore. It is very difficult to deal with. Maybe you could find your son a constructive hobby that requires patience, or sports.
