Mum Plans To Stop Her Kids From Getting Addicted To Games & Tablet Using This by HeWrites(m): 6:07am On Jun 28, 2018
A Nigerian mother has shared her plan to prevent her kids from getting addicted to video games and tablets this holiday and it's absolutely brilliant.

Samiah Oyekan-Ahmed wrote a binding document for her son to sign ahead of the holiday period. The document is a list of rules which regulate screen time, game time, and even the amount of snacks that can be eaten during this holiday.

Included in the document are conditions that have to be met before her kids can enjoy these holiday benefits. She also listed consequences to be faced if the rules are flouted and also alternative ways her kids could engage themselves.

A lot of parents found the rules to be quite brilliant and say they plan to try it with their kids.

Sharing the document on Instagram, Samiah wrote;
"Holiday soon! God help us all!

Binding document for my son to sign!

Feel free to copy if you’re trying to prevent video game/tablet addiction this holiday!

I will type this up and he shall sign. Infact a little winchy part of me is hoping he breaks the rules so I can just pack them all up! ?

Im also rationing snacks this holiday! We will pack up treat packs for each day! If you like eat all your snacks before 9am, if you like save it to last the whole day! Your call!

I’m fully on OPERATION PRESERVE MY SANITY!
PS: Before I’m bombarded with ideas for summer holiday activities, we have those sorted thank you very much. ?"

The kid should sign the document then flaunt all the rules... Afterall, any legal agreement with a minor is void

I may have to copy this for my boys. But I hope there's a provision for time to play and time to help out with chores in the house.

Nice, May God help u to achieve this wonderful aim.
Technology has done more harm than good to kids of today. Early exposure to these things is really bad and difficult to control. Kids don't want to go out and play with their friend anymore , they are comfortable sitting their ass all day at home on the tablet or game console which has resulted into many bad things like anti social behavior, early addiction, lack of exercise(running & playing around) which most times end up being obese or unhealthy living, and the worst of all is the Internet that nearly everything is either violence or adult content from social media to music videos.
May God help us with these kids of our time, their brain is something else, they do and say things that is 10 times their age.

Dear mum,
This ur holiday rules and regulation can only work if the dad is onboard and solidly behind you. If not, that sanity ure trying to get during this forth coming holiday will be far fetched.

Back in the days, my mom would pack up our Nintendo Box. I and My brother would always locate it and We'd keep it in our room. Whenever she stepped out, we'd pick up our game and play.

Good old days.

If na pikin like me, don't bother. I only gave myself brain on this game stuff when I got older. I'm still a wicked gamer though, but not in a way to let it affect my life.

But why is she pointing at her bweasts? smiley
