What Can Parents Do About Video Game Addiction?
/

Kids today aren’t addicted to games just because they are fun. There is a real underlying sense of satisfaction that comes from playing games like Fortnite. The only problem is that video games satisfy these desires in artificial ways. Andrew McPeak and Tim Elmore believe that if parents want to help kids understand why they need to turn it off, adults should first seek to understand why they turned it on in the first place. Once we understand each of these motivations, then we can talk about healthy ways to meet the need—without the screen.
