Laurie Oulette on Addiction to Video GamesAbout Laurie Oulett our guest on HealthyPlace TV

Laurie Oulett is the mother of a 14-year-old young boy who is addicted to video games. She says that he plays a lot, and even more after his father died, last December, up to 10-12 hours a day. He is a smart boy, but failing only because he does not do his homework because he's playing all the time. He even lost interest in sports.

Watch the video and see all that Laurie has tried to do for her son to no avail, since doctors and clinics offer help for drug addiction or alcohol addiction, but not for video games addiction.
