Thinking of banning video games in your home? Think again

Thinking of banning video games in your home?  Hide your pesticides.  A 14-year-old boy in China allegedly poisoned his parents when his mother forbid him to play video games.

As a result, "China has announced plans to define Internet addiction in young people and to devise methods for preventing it, China Daily is reporting," according to a story by Mark Harper.

“The unhealthy content online, such as violence and obscenity, has damaged young people physically and mentally,” Harper quoted Wang Ping, managing director of the Chinese Society for Juvenile Delinquency Prevention Research, a non-governmental organization. “But what symptoms define Internet addiction? How to diagnose young addicts, and at what level of addiction, is still vague.”

Apparently the boy used farm chemicals on food his mother and father, brother and sister-in-law were eating. All were treated and released from an area hospital.
