Are you struggling with a child who is constantly arguing even to the point of violence over the computer? Maybe experiencing repetitive stress injuries due to excess gaming use. Her game play has increased and spends too much time online researching game related items. Does she admit that playing helps improve her mood and she’s often irritable otherwise? These are all symptoms of problematic computer gaming.

All young people are oppositional from time to time, particularly when they’re tired, hungry or emotionally upset. They might argue or talk back. Your kid might even be disrespectful to you. But, some of them are more oppositional than normal. These kids might be diagnosed with oppositional defiant disorder.
