Why are kids so addicted to computer and video games? Can’t they see it’s a waste of time?
In today’s podcast, we will hearÂ – from kid’s point of view – why they play hours on end.
My guest is my friend Dan Sutoyo. He’s been a serious gamer for over 10 years. He recently quit playing, and lives to tell it!
Dan gives us a perspective of computer and video games from our children’s perspective – what’s so fun about it, why it’s so hard to quit, and what parents can do to help their children.
If after listening to this podcast you still have questions about your child, Dan has generously given permission for you or your child to email him for extra help. His email is dsutoyo [at] gmail [dot] com.
I also recommend a great tool called TimesUpKidz. It’s developed by a dad with 2 boys, you can read about it on my post “Get Your Kids Off the Computer Without Nagging.” Yes, it is possible to do it without nagging!
