I have a 17 year old son that has been spending years playing games, most of the time behind our backs and in the middle of the night when we wouldn't see him. We were always trying to set limits on games, but he said because of that it made him want to play more and sneak around to play games or watch YouTube videos of gamers. My adult son purchased a PS4 for the family last year for Christmas. So my youngest started playing, and after his time was up, he was sneak again and play in the middle of the night. And when we would take the PS4 away, he would sneak the computer to his bedroom and play all night. We have talked to him over and over about game addiction, and he will get very angry and say we are lying about his symptoms and he is not addicted. Every night he plays till about 2:00-2:30 in the morning. We even added a time tracker to his account so he could see how much time he was spending on gaming, and he says that was not correct because he is not "actively playing" that whole time. It's just excuse after excuse and I don't know what to do. He has in times past not played for a week or two to prove to us he was not addicted. But when he does play, it's hard to get him to do his schoolwork or his chores. And when he is not playing, he is watching people play or reading about the games. He also always has to be entertained by some kind of technology. He has to be watching TV or browsing the web... he spends and average of 4-5 hours a day playing. We gave him a limit of 3 hours. He just doesn't believe me when I tell him it is unhealthy for him. He says you can't believe everything you read and continue playing. Taking the games away don't help, cause he finds a way by sneaking. Last night his friends came over and he played games with them for alittle bit, but when they wanted to play cards, he went to him room, on his phone and watched a movie. When I asked why he did that, he said they were not doing something he wanted to do. Other than completely banning all electronics, I don't know how to fix this problem. Thanks!
