Why are video games so addicting and how can I leverage it for my benefit?

Many parents or family members are worried that their kid is playing too much video games. They say things like “they aren’t doing anything with their life and I’m scared that they won’t be successful.” Some people may even go as far as to say that they are “addicted” to gaming. Are these concerns really true? They can be but there is more to the story than just playing these electronic games. These online games can fulfill deep psychological and social needs. By understanding these needs, we can build a bridge into a meaningful relationship and using gaming as a clue to getting these psychological and social needs met in other places.

Should I spank my child as a form of punishment? Re-thinking parenting and discipline.

The worst part of parenting is having to discipline and punish your child.
