Can you help your child Break Free from their Gaming Addiction?

At Inside Out Counselling, we help your child to overcome their addiction without harming your relationship with them.


What exactly is Gaming Addiction?

According to ICD-11, by World Health Organisations (WHO)


A serious problem for teenagers which can affect their mental health, academic performance, and social life.


It is impaired control over gaming, prioritizing gaming over other interests and daily activities, leading to negative consequences.

How can you Assess your child’s addiction?

Symptoms of Addiction

✅ Obsession with gaming: the teen may be preoccupied with gaming to the point it becomes a priority over everything else.

✅ Withdrawal symptoms: irritability, frustration, or depression when they are not able to play games.

✅ Neglecting responsibilities: academic performance, hygiene, and social life may suffer.

✅ Continued gaming despite negative consequences (unable to reduce playing time and having unsuccessful attempts to quit gaming).

✅ Lying to family members about the amount of time spent on gaming.

✅ Using video games to relieve negative moods.

Have you tried these with your Child ?

✅ Setting limits on gaming time and place, and modeling healthy gaming habits.

✅ Make sure the games are age-appropriate and content-appropriate.

✅ Keep an eye on how your children interact with their devices (aggressive, irritable → lesser screen time is needed).

✅ Ensure your children have alternative activities (sports or clubs encouraging real-life engagement with peers).

✅ If these measures do not work, you might want to get a consultation from mental health professionals specializing in gaming addiction.
