Addiction to Video Games

Addiction to Video Games

The American Medical Association wants to call it a psychiatric disorder…addiction to video games. The organization hopes to point out that this is a very real problem and it makes suggestions for treatment. In addition, the goal is to get insurance companies to pay for therapy. The signs are what you expect. The teens holding up in their rooms, ignoring friends, family, even food and shower, while work suffers. Of course, there will be a debate. Video game makers don’t seem to like this at all. If your child plays video games, don’t worry. It’s normal. It’s just when it becomes excessive that it’s a problem.

We always appreciate your comments.
