Xbox addiction

... I have tried the tough love. I will continue doing the best I can and follow that advice. But I'm afraid it may be some underlying issue. Why does he need to be in control? I have even been told that it may be food allergies. It may be the way I was raised, it may be the way my husband was raised. It may be the way my son was raised. Why would my kids being raised from the... (11 replies)

... My son is over 6 feet tall, 160 lb. He is very athletic and throws things at first when we take it away. He has had the police called several times. They ask questions and leave. We have been to counseling but they say he will just move on to another addiction. I don't want him doing drugs. He has scored a near perfect score on his ACT test, but is flunking classes. He has...

... I have taken away his xbox, in fact, he doesn't have it right now. He will still stay up and do other things. I have taken him to counseling. They say that the xbox isn't the problem, that he will just choose another addiction. Thanks though for the tough love reply, I've already tried it, it helped at first. ... (11 replies)

... box. Enforce his bed time. Send him to addiction counseling. Do whatever it takes. Why does a 17 year old kid get to dictate to YOU, in your own house, what he will and will not do? ... (11 replies)

... Thanks for the help. We are living on unemployment. We are both getting the maximum amount which we are able to get by on. We also have some 401k money that we could use in an emergency and some IRAs. We have lived in the same house for about 15 years. My husband does go from job to job, but seems to always make quite a bit of money when he works. He has been self employed... (11 replies)

... daffy: I replied to your other post and that one didn't say that you were unemployed too. What are you living off of? Someone, somehow, needs to get a job in your house or you're going to be out on your butt, too. Your son is old enough to have a part-time job. He needs to be held accountable by someone. I can definitely see that your husband's lack of work is rubbing... (11 replies)

... Another thing I have to mention. Money came easy for us while he was growing up. Yes, he got material things. He was involved with sports and so was his sister. We traveled from state to state on travel teams. Life was a real whirlwind. I never really liked this but my husband loved it. We had lots of friends with similar interests and who were wealthy. I am more of an... (11 replies)

... I'm still hanging with the tough love routine, but you probably need to enlist the help of a youth counselor. As to the sneaking out...do you have an alarm system or can you have one installed? Have the code where only you know it, and set it at night such that if a window or door opens the alarm goes off. And make sure he knows that will happen. If he sneaks out anyway,... (11 replies)
... am. Our son is having problems with an Xbox addiction and our daughter has friends over constantly or is out with her friends. It's very sad that we can't do anything together. Is it because my kids are teenagers? ... (35 replies)

... I agree. You need to be a parent to your son and take the X-box away. Don't be afraid of your son getting mad at you or throwing a fit. This is your job as his parent and you need to immune yourself from tantrums or him getting mad. My son had a semester of doing poorly at school. I took away his TV, his gaming systems and his cell phone. I told him when his grades... (11 replies)

... he kissed his daughter's bald head. He's so emotional right now. He explained to me that the pills made him numb, not just physically but mentally too. When the addiction started to consume him, he started to withdraw into a dark, depressed place. He used to hide out in the spare room, playing xbox most days after work. ... (30 replies)
