Do you have a child who loves to play video games? These safeguards will help counter the possible ill effects.

In order to diminish the adverse effects that video games may have on your child, consider the following safeguards:

  • Set time limits.
  • Make sure your child completes his chores and homework before play.
  • Be intimately involved in choosing the games your child plays.
  • Remember: you are the grown-up! Model good viewing and gaming habits yourself.
  • Suspend play if your child is having difficulty with self-control.
  • Monitor attitudes and behaviors with your child when he plays with friends or siblings.
  • Encourage your child’s friends to play at your house.
  • Watch for signs of addiction to video game play, particularly with boys.

Understand How to Respect and Love your Son Well

Why doesn’t my son listen to me? Have you ever asked that question? The truth is, how you see your son and talk to him has a significant effect on how he thinks and acts. That’s why we want to help you. In fact, we’ve created a free five-part video series called “Recognizing Your Son’s Need for Respect” that will help you understand how showing respect, rather than shaming and badgering, will serve to motivate and guide your son.
