  1. Thank you so much Tom! It has been very difficult for me. I am disabled. I will take your advice as it seems perfectly logical. He loves building, has a million Lego and wants to make a stop motion with Lego. I will begin there. Thank you for taking the time to write your response!
  2. My son is 12. He has been playing Rust. He plays an hour and ten minutes twice a day every other day. He used to play other games but has become fixated on this game lately. I am gradually reducing his time. I realized after research this game has a toxic online community. It's been hard living in a hot place this summer no money to spend on doing things. Last night my son became very agitated when I would need to speak with him while playing the game. He has become disrespectful to me and doesn't want to do anything anymore except games. If I call him on the disrespect he gets more upset. He tells me to stop or it will make it worse (the volume. ) Someone in the home was not feeli G well and he was being loud in game (excitement.) I had him get off the game. He wanted to go back to it an hour later. I said no. I let him know what I found out about Rust and that I think it is unhealthy. I told him I don't want him playing it anymore. He asked me afterward if he could keep PubG and Unturned. I don't know how to proceed. I definitely want Rust gone. I don't want to crush it for him since he has friends from school that he plays with. I am going to tell him not to make any friends he doesn't already know. If any of them are behaving in a negative way, I don't want him playing with them. Here's my question. How do you transition off of specific games the child already has wants to play now instead of Rust? (Pubg Unturned Apex Legends) without taking everything he likes away or disturbing the entire household with an outburst? I feel these games are bad news. He likes creative survival etc. Any ideas help greatly appreciated. I think it has become a social feel good outlet and escape. Sincere thanks all
  3. Hi, I am a mom of a 12 year old boy who plays games. His sister bought him a computer last Christmas. He has many games on his computer. I would only allow an hour in the beginning. I let him play more. Then it became a few hours and recently, he would become irritable, lash out at me, just edgy. He has lost interest doing things and getting out of the house. I have been in tears over this recently. He has anxiety and I think he feels guilt from upsetting me. My mom and I have a credit card together. My son plays Roblocks and asked if he could buy $5.00 worth of Robucks on his game. My mother said yes. I purchased it for him by inputting the card information myself on his computer. However, we did not realize the card is stored. Over the past week, $180 has been charged on her card. I asked my son last night and he admitted to doing it. He was very upset with himself and felt that his nana will be so mad at him. He was feeling very bad, crying with guilt. I am sick to my stomach and do not know how to deal with this today. I want to remove the games but don't know if it should be gradually, immediate or how to approach it with the most recent incident. Any immediate advice would be greatly appreciated. I am a single mom, disabled and cannot afford to buy reclaim either. I hope some of you can help give some advice for today. Thank you in advance! About to call Microsoft and my mom to discuss this.
