How to tell if your kid is video game addicted?

Probably you have some thoughts, but are you, right? As a parent, we often think that my child is game addicted. The big question is, “Can You Really Be Addicted to Video Games?”. We think yes, your child can be addicted to games! In May 2019, the World Health Organization officially added a new disorder to the section on substance use and addictive behaviours : “gaming disorder,” which it defines as excessive and irrepressible preoccupation with video games, resulting in significant personal, social, academic or occupational impairment for at least 12 months. Which of these behaviours do you mostly see in your child?:
  • Spends a lot of free time playing video games.
  • Neglects school or work.
  • Ignores family.
  • Lets their personal appearance go.
  • Health issues start to come up.
  • Spends money on video games prior to the necessities.
The list can go on, and it’s quite frightful, isn’t it? Let we ask you the following question "And how many of these resonate with what you see in your child?" Maybe you have the feeling deep down that something is seriously wrong with your kid. Don't wait longer and take action NOW.
