Kids Addicted to Computer Games - Just a Harmless Phase?

Your child's addiction to computer games can no longer continue. You hoped that this obsession with computer games would be a temporary phase - something that he would "grow out of".

When your child first started playing computer games you probably assumed that this was just harmless fun that would be an enjoyable activity for your child. After all, most children and teens play computer games in some capacity. But unfortunately, moderation was not possible for your child.

You were caught by surprise by how quickly your child retreated into the virtual world. You watched as he became less and less engaged with his friends and family. You started to worry as his grades no longer reflected his ability, but rather, the extent of his addiction. Looking back on how the addiction to computer games gained access into your home and took over your child, you may be feeling guilty, angry, embarrassed, lost, stressed, and / or depressed by the perceived hopelessness of the situation.

Stop Computer Game Addiction Before It Gets Worse
