Product Description

The most popular video games are intentionally designed to ensure addictive appeal, and it works. One out of four children are addicted to video games. It can steal their time and interests by submitting their brains to a pleasurable chemical reaction similar to an amphetamine drug injection. Olivia and Kurt Bruner expose the dangers of video game addiction, share their own family's experience, and offer helpful insight to make the tough decisions surrounding this epidemic.

Publisher's Description

When Olivia Bruner saw video games overtaking her young sons' lives, she decided to learn the facts behind addiction. What she found was shocking: that most games are designed to be highly addictive-triggering physiological reactions in the brain similar to those associated with substance abuse-and that one out of five kids becomes addicted to computer and video games. And while many parents screen the content of games to protect their children from violent and sexual themes, few understand the forces causing their children to become hooked on the "digital drug." This book arms parents with the facts they need and concrete steps to protect our children from this very real epidemic. A must-read for all parents.
