    Dear Parent,

    Your worry has prompted you to seek help, which is such a good thing to do, especially when you see how your son’s life is being affected. Lost in a virtual world means that he is disconnected from the real world. It’s going to be hard for you to draw him out of this addiction on your own.

    May I suggest that you consult a counselor experienced in working with gadget addiction? If you need references, we will be happy to help.
