My son is 9 and he's so fixated with his Xbox. I limit his time on there and have taken it off him numerous times to make she he's not addicted to it but then he just mopes round with a face on him saying he's bored. I get him out and about to distract him and have quality time but after a while he seems bored and fed up. I feel like I'm loosing him to a digital world. sad

I have 3 sons like this confused All you can do is limit it. Besides taking the whole Xbox away, what else can you do? I would like to hear others views on it too.

It's so hard isn't it. I feel I know my daughter more because she is more artistic so she draws, reads, sings, plays the guitar and really loves being in my company and just hanging out with me. My son used to be like that but now I feel like I have a 19 year old not a 9 year old. He's like a grumpy old man.
