Banned for six weeks: Why I've had enough of my sons' Xboxing

FIONA PHILLIPS:

For some teenagers, gaming is pretty much essential to daily life, because it’s become an addiction.

I HAVE broken up that many fights between my two boys in the past year, I’m thinking of becoming a boxing referee.

Either that, or finally getting rid of the Xbox, the cause of most of their fisticuffs.

Don't do it, man. You're kids will hate you for life! Just keep limit the time they use it. Keep it in you room or something.

That was the worst staged video I have ever seen in my life.

I have seen better acting from Christian Bale.

SnotyTheRocket2256d ago

He got an Oscar didn't he? So, ummm, yeah.

@Snoty
The Oscars are as much of a joke as the VGA.

That's fair enough. If your kids are misbehaving, then of course you're going to discipline them in some way or another. Me and my sister used to fight over our games when we were young. My mom just took the games from us and said that if we were going to fight over them, then nobody could play them. We eventually learned to share. lol

Not really worth writing an article over but whatever.

Try a co-operative game you dozy dozy mare.

Children are constantly vying for parents attention and to outdo each other in everyway possible.
It's basic pack behaviour. Add a competitive game into an already volatile mix and voila...angry kids.

WOW, the stupidity of people is staggering.
Don't pit them against each other and they are less likely to fight.

hellvaguy2256d ago

Misleading title. Why dont you try banned your kids for a more reasonable time like 1 or 2 weeks before going all out? You could yourself lead by example and not watch tv or use the internet for 6 weeks. But you wont, which is of course hypocrytical.

yes, there are a LOT of people ADDICTED to games, and yes it is a problem, do what you have to do.
