Subject: RE: will my child hate me if I send him to boarding school?
My parents used to try all sorts of tricks to prevent me from playing video games. I do not think they went about it the right way, as I did all my homework, played several sports, took music lessons, math lessons, art lessons, and played outside. But heaven forbid if I wanted to play video games and "rot my brain."
Years later, it was my experience with video games and computers that enabled me to have a very concrete advantage in every work and academic environment I have encountered.
If my parents sent me to boarding school I would have emancipated myself from them the second I turned 18 and never looked back. That's an admission to being a failed parent, except in rare circumstances where the school is Andover or Exeter, but I still have reservations about that.
Try exercising discipline and alternate reinforcement strategies with your son, and realize that video games (like sweets) are okay as long as they are in moderation.
