Help! My Teen is Addicted to Video Games
09/01/2008 at 18:41 PM

My child is 17, and has enjoyed playing video games for the past few years.  Recently, he started playing an online computer game, and now it's all he does.  He ignores his family and friends, barely does his homework, and doesn't seem to care about applying to college at all.

I am very concerned that if he does not stop soon, this game will consume his adult life as well.  Is anyone else having a similar experience?
