This teen is so addicted to video games that his mother hand-feeds him as he goes on playing
Manila, Feb 22: It is not uncommon to see parents reprimanding their children for addicted to video games and not going outside to play.
Too much of addiction for video games is considered something harmful for kids' health - mental as well as physical.
Here is one such story that has gone to the extreme.
A woman has found her son's addiction for video games reaching such extreme that she can't make him stop at any cost. Instead, she even feeds him with her hand as he goes on and on playing on the screen.
Thorty-seven-year-old Lilybeth Marvel said she became worried about gaming habits of his son when he started staying at an internet café till late night in Nueva Ecija province in the Philippines, UK-based LadBible reported (http://www.ladbible.com/news/gaming-mother-hand-feeds-video-game-addict-son-who-wont-stop-playing-20190221).
Footage has now emerged of Lilybeth feeding her teenage son Carlito Garcia as his hands remain busy settling the on-screen challenges of a video game. The boy is so much glued to the game that he has no time to even take his eyes off the screen for a second.
"My poor child... Here, eat now. You have so much money, it might take till tomorrow for you to get home. Are you still needing to pee? My goodness, just feel sorry for my child. You are so irritating," Lilybeth is heard telling his son, as per the LadBible report.
Even Carlito's grandmother is worried. She has even started sending vitamins for his grandson who frequently skipped school to play games so that he did not become malnourished.
Carlito's parents have taken him out of the school and trying to handle the situation with a positive approach.
