What would you think if your adult son or daughter said this?

That the only motivation they have to live is video games, and if they were somehow tooken away, than they'd have no reason to live anymore.

    It’s normal to flee into games during depression, it’s also normal to be a professional or casual gamer.

    Tell him or her that video games alone will not help an adult child to lead a successful life. Explain that one should think in terms of a career for future survival .Parents cannot look after the children beyond a certain age limit especially when they are adults. As such limit the time spent on video games and concentrate on career development as well.

Live indoors, inside rooms with flickering images on screens which have replaced all that with a digital version. Work of the devil, almost

    I would think that it was time to take them to the doctor and find out what is causing this need to live in a fantasy world. I would also have to look at myself a bit more closely to find out where I went wrong as a parent. This son/daughter are not natural are they.
