Success in the real world comes when kids are taken out of the video game world.
How does this work?
Keep this in mind: whenever we allow our kids to do stimulating things over and over again- like video games- their brain chemistry often creates a greater and greater appetite for that activity. This is why allowing unbridled access to non-redemptive activities like video games can actually be grooming them for failure in the real world. A world that requires substantive accomplishment to be successful.
Also, keep in mind that when our kids are made to halt a video game without a constructive substitute they are likely still playing that game in their minds. This keeps stimulating that same brain chemistry. Making sure your child focuses on a real task after playing video games will be a benefit for both you and your child.
