Did you not hear about the 9 hear old girl who was soiling herself and staying up all night just so she could keep playing? Shes in rehab now.

There's been enough warnings all over the news, social media and from my school that this game is destructive and counterproductive to the children's wellbeing. It's been banned in my house along with Roblox permanently.. Why did a hole for yourself and expect your child to be disciplined at such an early age. Ban it, suffer the emotional outburst that will come with the ban and don't give in. If you give in you may as well give up as your child will know your weak and will give in again for an easy life.

If your child is like this now and you allow them to continue to play it, don't expect an easy life or an easy parenting experience. It won't happen. I could tell you about my boss who did give in years ago. He's paying a price no parent would want to pay and he can't see a way out of it. Things went from bad to worse and life at home is a daily battle in hell. Is it worth it. I don't think so but it's your choice at the end of the day, your bed and no one else's.

Fortnite is addictive and a child shouldn't be exposed to war and violence in such a young age

Imagine this........in order to be good at drawing you need.........
an eye, a pencil, a piece of paper and a hand. Just looking at images/paintings etc helps but it doesn't turn you into an artist. Only practicing/making mistakes/having a go/using your hand, will hopefully turn you into an artist. (this is hand/eye co-ordination)

Now imagine this.......in order to be good at talking you need........
an ear, someone to talk to and a mouth. Just hearing language helps but it doesn't turn you into someone who is a confident speaker/listener. Only practicing/making mistakes/having a go/using your mouth, will hopefully turn you into a good talker.
TURN ON COMPUTER GAMES, TURN OFF SPEECH.
POOR SPEECH MAKES READING AND LEARNING HARDER.
