The truth is the parents have a big effect for this problem because they are the one who buy the children computer and the one who buy the children a computer games, it is not bad to play computer games, but if too much, it is not good also, the children need socialize with their friends, they need friends in the real life, not friends in the games world. There are many solutions for the parents to prevent their children’s computer usage.
Parents contribution are very important to help the children who addicted to games, children must know the negative effect because of their addiction, such as: have no friends in the real life, school grade become bad, and the games will effect their health, specially their eyes.
