Keller @ Large: Time To Take Control Of Video Games And Internet


DEALING WITH IMMIGRATION ISSUES AUTHORIZE SHELTERS AND REQUIRE MIGRANT CHILDREN TO BE KEPT WITH THEIR PARENTS. THE HEALTH ORGANIZATION IS CLASSIFYING VIDEOER GAME ADDICTION AS A DISORDER AND COULD LEAD INSURANCE COMPANYS TO COVER COST OF TREATMENT. JOHN KELLER HAS MORE. Reporter: IT’S A QUESTION YOU MAY HAVE ASKED YOURSELF WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER OR MAYBE ASKING ABOUT YOUR OWN KIDS NOW. HOW MUCH VIDEO GAME TIME IS TOO MUCH? FINALLY AFTER YEARS OF SPECULATION AND CONCERN, WE MAY START TO GET SCIENTIFIC ANSWERS NOW THAT THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION DECIDED TO CLASSIFY GAMING DISORDER AS AN ADDICTION COUCH RABBLE TO COME PUSSIVE GAMBLING OR SUBSTANCE ABUSE. THAT DOESN’T MANE BECAUSE SOMEONE, NO MATTER WHAT THEIR AGE, IS SPENDING A LOT OF TIME ON LINE, THEIR LOVED ONES SHOULD PANIC AND RUSH THEM TO THE DOCTOR. A GAMER MUST BE SHOWING SERIOUS SAID EFFECTS LIKE DISRUPTED SLEEP AND DIET AND A SHARP DROP IN PHYSICAL ACTIVITY FOR AT LEAST A YEAR BEFORE THEY CAN BE DIAGNOSED WITH A DISORDER. MANY DOCTORS AND INSURANCE COMPANIES DO RELY ON THOSE WHO DESIGNATIONS. THE MOST POSITIVE FALLOUT WILL COME FROM FOLKS THAT NEED A WAKE UP CALL ABOUT THE SERIOUS OF NOT JUST GAMING BUT OTHER FORMS OF ON LINE ADDICTION. WE AS A CULTURE ARE RECENTLY WAKING UP TO THE UNHEALTHY OBSESSION TOO MANY HAVE WITH SMART PHONES AND SOCIAL MEDIA. AND THE SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGICAL AND PHYSICAL DAMAGE THEY CAN CAUSE. MAYBE MORE CONSUMERS WILL PUSH BACK AGAINST VIDEO GAME MAKERS THAT DESIGN PRODUCTS TO BE ADDICTIVE WITH THE AIM SORT OF UP ROAR — SAME SORT OF UP RATHER ON TOBACCO. THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE TALLS TO USE AND ENJOY. IT’S TIME WE STARTED TAKING CONTROL OF THEM INSTEAD OF LETTING THEM CONTROL US.
