I hope this letter finds you in fine fettle. I had a great time with your family last week. I have not yet finished describing to my husband about my visit to your place last week. This trip will be a cherishing memory.
But one thing that keeps me worried is about your son Krish’s addiction to online games. Although video games are enjoyable and entertaining to children in many ways, excessive gaming is a bad thing. It was alarming when I came to know that Krish spends almost 16 hours playing online video games. This can lead to obesity, brain atrophy and laziness. Don’t worry. There are number of ways which can help Krish come out of this addiction.
My first advice is not to make him completely stop playing online games. Just cut down the number of hours and set a time boundary like no ipads after 8pm. Clearly explain him the consequence of breaking the rules. Say if he continues to play after 8pm, you will cut an hour of gaming privilege for the next day. Insist him to complete his homework on time and make him help you with household chores. Create family time. Make it a habit to watch healthy programs in television along with your family. Make him sit with you and read out inspiring and life motivating stories. Teach him to play chess and other board games physically instead of online. This can be done only if you involve yourself in playing these games with Krish rather than leaving him alone.
I hope you will keep these advices intact. I wish to see Krish as an active kid having fun with family and friends and not tied up with technology. Convey my regards to your family
See you soon.
