Item Description...
Overview
re my kids spending too much time playing video games?
Why don't my kids want to do anything else?
Is it risky to let my adolescent play online games?
How do I get my kids to turn off their game box and enjoy real life?

Olivia Bruner was one of the millions of parents asking these questions. When she saw video games overtaking her young sons' lives, she decided to learn the facts behind addiction. What she found was shocking: that most games are designed to be highly addictive-triggering physiological reactions in the brain similar to those associated with substance abuse-and that one out of five kids becomes addicted to computer and video games. And while many parents screen the content of games to protect their children from violent and sexual themes, few understand the forces causing their children to become hooked on "the digital drug."

Presenting the growing research and stories of former video game addicts, Olivia and Kurt Bruner arm parents with the facts they need and concrete steps to protect our children from this very real epidemic. PLAYSTATION NATION is a must-read for all parents.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Well Researched, Well Written, Very Helpfull  Jul 11, 2008
I travel and speak about gaming addiction and right now this is the only book on gaming that I sell. I am going through this book for the second time because it is so good. If you are a parent and have a concern about your child's gaming this book is a great investment.

This books only limitation is that it has an over the shoulder point of view of gaming. The Bruner's lack of first hand experience sometimes shows. But what they lack in game experience they more than makeup for in parental expertise. I own several books on this topic and if you are a parent and you only buy one book on this subject you should buy Playstation Nation.
 
Great  Apr 28, 2008
This book, and the idea it supports, is garbage. Video games are becoming yet another excuse for bad parenting, following in the footsteps of television.

Parents: stop trying to play the victim and raise your damn kids yourselves.
 
Must read for parents  Feb 26, 2008
This book is well written and contains citations for the references used. There are an increasing number of kids and adults who fit the criteria that this book illustrates. It will teach you how to understand and deal with the newest addiction that is destroying families and children all over the world. This is an easy book to read and will give you the references to do your own homework on the issue as well.
 
Useful and Practical-Help when in doubt...  Dec 19, 2007
I purchased this book because of my concern for my 12-year old son and his future. This book affirmed my strength to resist letting him lose: a zest for real life, social skills, and maturing. It's too easy to turn to a virtual world than to face the real world and build coping skills needed for life. Without being overly dramatic or too technical, the Bruner's provided factual and subjective information while citing other authors, sources, and scholars on video game addition.
 
Mom of Two Boys  Apr 5, 2007
This book was the push I need to stop game playing in our home. The authors spelled out exactly what was happening with my two boys and online game playing. It was like reading dialogue from my boys and I. Since, the boys stopped playing online games our entire household is a much more peaceful place with the boys spending their time playing outside, reading, using their imaginations and I am no longer the bad mom constantly telling the kids to get off the computer. I feel like our children, teens, and young men are having their lives stolen by computer games. It is a free choice but it is truly addictive. Think of the hours wasted playing online games, especially while a child is growing up. I have friends whose husbands spend hours playing games. What a loss. I recommend this book to all.
