Video Game Addiction: The Time for Action is Now
As parents, it’s our job to guide our children to independence. If your child’s ability to self-regulate their behaviors would prevent them from being successful in college or independent living, make an intervention now to correct their habits before it gets out of control.
Here are some questions to explore to see if now is the time for action:
- Does your child sneak use of their device/video games and defy limits you set?
- If left alone, would your child play online over doing their homework or other responsibilities?
- Does your child miss out on socialization opportunities or outside play to engage in screen activity?
- Has your child’s schoolwork or home responsibilities (keeping room clean, etc) fallen off due to screen activity?
