Loftyerd 1 Posted October 29, 2021 Share Posted October 29, 2021 My 14 year old son has almost finished a 90 day detox from video games. He had attempted suicide in August after losing access to them for breaking the rules around time limits. He has been hospitalized inpatient and is generally doing a lot better. We also found out he is on the autistic spectrum and the screen (unfortunately) is his “preferred activity”. His therapist and Behavioral Team both say it is wise to reintroduce access to the games, on a limited basis, otherwise not having access for so long will backfire and bring him back to where we started. I am so afraid of losing the progress we have made but I can also see what they are warning about beginning to happen. I feel like we’re damned if we do, damned if we don’t reintroduce the games. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions on how to handle this? Is there a general “schedule” for reintroduction that seems to work best?
