Hi all,

My son is 14 years old and he's a game addicted. I don't know how to prevent him from playing games with his bad friends in the cyber-games. I often shout at him, especially spank him but he still want to playing games.

He usually play hooky and he stole my money to play games.

What can i do? Please help me.

You are the parent, so therefore take away his gaming system, computer or TV.

Set up some rules and time limits for how long he can game for, if he doesnt comply with the rules then threaten to sell the gaming devices and follow through on the threat if need be.

Limit his time on his games.

My son was spending alot of time in front of the screen, so i limited him to 1 hour on his PS3 and 30mins on his Ipod or Computer. Works for us.

I understand how you feel fasmenow89.



My son is almost 15. I have managed to go all these years without the gaming issue, until late last year when he started playing an online game, League of Legends, with a few school friends. He was addicted almost immediately. Everything revolves around that game. If he's not playing it, he is watching youtube videos of other people playing it.



He has changed as a person, he is disrespectful, angry all the time, arks up at the house rules. It has caused so much grief in our house. I can't bare it any more.



Yesterday was mothers day, and he preferred to stay at home with his computer, than have morning tea with his grandmothers and me.



I'm really in despair,



I have tried, taking it away. Giving it as a reward. Having reasonable time limits.



I'm trying to be a fair mother. I don't want to stop him having fun. But I can't seem to find a happy medium.



I've lost my puff. I just feel like I've failed.

I have a similar problem, I cannot reason with him. Someone suggested internet filters but I don't know much about them. I keep threatening to take his devices but just can't bring myself to do it.

with technology and social media all over nowadays, i bet these are common problems parents face. I think there's nothing wrong with games/online gaming as long as it's not too much. Have you tried enforcing a schedule for going online or playing games?

Don't be panic! and be calm. Your are not the alone facing this situation. Explain the limits and consequences to your son. Let him know that he will choose the consequences with his behavior. Also spend lots of time with him.

Set the rules and boundaries for games, you are the parent and have that authority. Don't be aggressive about it simply do it an a calm and fair way.
