How much is too much when it comes to video gaming?
I know women whose husbands (yes, grown men) spend hours on video games, at night and weekends and it creates problems with parenting, as well as marital woes. It's like an addiction.
I can't imagine what it must be like to compete for a man with a game!
I wonder how common this is - as it seems to happen frequently in homes across America.
I think video games definitely have their place. They can entertain and kids with fine motor skill delays can improve them by the repetitive eye-hand coordinated nature of gaming. But I think hours of it, at the expense of human relationships - is very troublesome.
Does anyone have to deal with this? How do you cope and should there be a cap on the time used for video gaming for kids, like parents often have for television?
And how does someone tell as adult to shut the games off?
