In brief: Teenage game addict
Children must have numberous activities to keep them interested in real life.
Physical exercise, sports and interacting with the family must be stressed. The children should be severely limited to their access to video games and should have a maximum set at a low number of hours per month. Children should not be allowed to go on line and play games with strangers.

Set limits on media use.
Help your child find healthy ways to deal with stress and anxiety. Many times an addiction develops as a way for a person to escape problems.
