With the rise of gaming, parents are finding it more and more difficult to pull their kids from the console. Though some kids go on to become champion gamers (yes, gaming competitions are becoming so popular that superstar gamers are emerging and electronic companies are scrambling to monetize the competitive gaming events), many find themselves addicted and unable to pull themselves from the video rabbit hole.
Obsessive gaming can cause kids to lose sleep and do poorly at school. Parents are reporting their kids are becoming more irritable and harder to control. Mood swings are common and relationships suffer.
Not all video games have a negative effect on gamers. Puzzle games can help to reduce stress and build important skills like logical thinking and analytical reasoning, but most kids are not attracted to puzzle games. They’re after the more competitive games that involve violence, fear, tension, and speed. In some tests by the US National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health, some gamers increased their stress levels when engaged in video games that focused on fear and excitement.
The good news is that the Fennzone System by Dr. Tim Fennell is designed specifically to reduce stress and help kids take back control of their lives. Kids find themselves able to pull themselves away from a game at will and parents report better relationships with their children.
Gaming doesn’t have to end, but both kids and parents can help manage game time and stress levels. The Fennzone system helps gamers to perform better through mind and body exercises. Dr. Tim’s proven system helps parents get their kids back.
