A Common Gamer Question

When can I play games again?Watch Cyberbully (2015) Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download? It’s a question asked by more than just teenagers looking down the barrel of another depressing Monday. It is not always verbalized, at times it is a mindset, a way of life, a self-deprecating motto of sorts. And it carries the weight of more than words alone: It is a call for help. There are times when video games are about more than just a good time. I have seen students who use video games to avoid conflict at home or struggles with grades, husbands…

Gamer Revolution

Is My Child Addicted To Video Games? (Part 2)

In Part 1 of this topic I included a brief self-check for reflecting on whether your gamer has healthy gaming habits or not.

These traits are all part of unhealthy gaming behavior and should be monitored and healthy habits encouraged and supported by you, the parents. Remember, you are the parent and you have every right to set expectations and uphold them when your child’s growth, health and future are in sway.

How to Spot Addictive Gaming  

Gaming addiction feels like it should be easy to spot. Addicted gamers should have no social skills, be pale like a vampire, be dangerously overweight and never have talked to a girl. Right? We’ve convinced ourselves that only social dropouts can be addicted to video games, and we justify our play, or the play of our loved ones, because they are just too nice to deal with something as taboo as addiction. I mean, they just really like video games, right? There’s nothing wrong with a little gaming, it isn’t really any different than watching a movie. And they aren’t…

Gaming Shows a Heart Condition

My dad is always full of wise sayings, great advice and terribly painful jokes. Growing up he was always fond of reminding me that one way to spot a bad decision was that it would “take you farther than you want to go, cost you more than you want to pay, and keep you longer than you want to stay.” Compulsive gaming is like that. It draws the gamer beyond the limits of a healthy life. I could give you a list of why gamers game too much, explain each and we could all go our way feeling we learned…
