My teenage son's gaming aggression ... and how I'm handling it.

24th May, 2018


Many of us are grappling with how to deal with our children and technology, particularly gaming. We're seeing the adverse affects of it - inability to concentrate, kids not listening, an increase in sibling rivalry, sometimes kids not sleeping at night, catching kids playing on their ipads in the middle of the night, and of course, the aggression that comes with it. 


Over the past few months, my newly turned 13 year old son has been showing us increased aggression when playing the popular game 'Fortnite'.


Should I just ban it altogether?  Or should I help him to deal with the aggression that he's feeling?  While every part of me wants to grab an axe and smash through that X-box, the parental counsellor in me is saying otherwise.


In this video below, I share with you how I've been speaking with my son about his aggression and what he can do about it.  Let us know in the comments below what your thoughts are.

Stack until you crack
There's dishes everywhere, the house is a mess, hubby tried to help with the washing by way of folding it and leaving it to sit on the coffee table, not put away, wish undies on the floor. Yes! This was my reality and yes I was annoyed, so I decided to film it and literally show you how I upgrade my thoughts when life doesn't go to plan.

What must it say about me as a parent that I've raised such a spoilt, selfish, ungrateful, disrespectful child. and what's worse, what does it say about me as a parent that I actually feel that way about my own child?
