Op Ed

Fox News - 'Fortnite' and the collapse of parenting. "There is nothing more irresponsible than a boy on a videogame binge." Except perhaps an author trying to sell books.

This is not hard people. Kids leave devices in the living room when they go to bed. You set the router to block devices after 9:00PM. You limit their 4G to 500MB per month, so they're forced to use it sparingly. Etc.

It's rare that I agree with Red, but that comment is pretty spot on. Games can be habit forming, and you can get obsessed with them especially when you're young. It's up to parents to put limits on things. I say that as someone who has pulled multiple all-nighters playing Civ 2, XCom, Alpha Centauri, etc.

Excuse me sir, I don't know what you think you know about parenting, but it is completely the responsibility of companies and other people to regulate the behavior of children. A parent shouldn't have to set limits with their own kids. It's not consistent with being their best friend and then being able to ignore them when they become inconvenient.

Or change companies to schools and you get more or less the same thing, and I'd say its less to do with wanting to be their best friend and just pure laziness (and if you say that then you get the "well you don't know how hard it is you don't have kids blah blah blah... my personal favorite).
