An expert in computer, Internet and video game addiction believes that 40 percent of the more than 6 million subscribers suffer from a clinical addiction to the game and wants warning labels on the game boxes similar to the Surgeon General’s warnings on cigarettes. TwitchGuru has the interview.
I know that my son is addicted. He says that he is getting bored after playing it for the last couple of weeks so I am hopeful for the school year. Parental controls is always an option. I have used it once in the past and my son decided to regulate his play time. One of his school friends who also is a WOW player tried to give me some grief over using parental controls. I reminded him that I knew his father’s phone number and was more than willing to explain to him how this boy’s father could implement parental controls to control his son’s play time. That boy is so respectful now!
