Everyone's comments are invited. Parents in particular. I feel this is a topic we most definitely need to discuss. A healthy and encouraging way to break the addiction as it formulates is important. Confiscation of the kid's device and keeping their bedroom door open at all times seem like obvious measures everyone will mention. I'm moreso looking for methods that rely more on making the child understand the gravity of the issue. Obviously, we can't sit down and expect a 14 year old to listen to a lecture on dopamine and DeltaFosB and call that "motivation". For the sake of argument, let's assume your kid is 13-15 when your suspicions are confirmed. Any clever or unique methods you can think of? Learning by experience is kinda what we want to avoid here. Thanks for the feedback.
