My kids are 6, 8 and 11. I allow them to play on the PS2 one hour per day as long as their chores are done. They also have an N64 in their playromm but do not use it much. My son is having issues he is 8. If he loses a game he gets mad and throws the controller. When his time is up he refuses to give the controller to the next person. I turned his game off today b/c he refused to stop when the game was over and he had a freaking fit. He stormed up to his room and slammed his door. I dunno what to do with him. He is a good kid usually but around games he is unreal. Has anyone had this issue with their child?

I have with my son who is now 131/2. When he was 9 he was the same way as your son so I took the game completely away from him and told him that when he can learn to control his anger and attitudes he'll be allowed to resume playing the games he loves so much. Let me tell you that was the hardest year of his little life. He would not calm down for any reason even though he knew he wouldn't be playing any of the consoles we had in the house. Now at 13 he so rarely plays any of the games that he's asked if we could sell them. He would rather be out playing soccer or going to Karate class these days. Thank GOD.
