I used to play Facebook games when I have nothing to do or when there is the need to harvest my fruits in farmville. I never know that I can be addicted to it so I decided to block all the games that I am playing so I can mocus on my writing job. It’s really hard at first because I am thinking about the building I build, my pet who is not going to take a bath, etc.. Good thing I didn’t have any withdrawal problems because I get used to it immediately.I didn’t miss playing those games now and I haven’t tried bingo yet or even poker. I am not sure if I am going to try it soon.
My son Elijah is very fond of playing Moshi Monsters, Angry Birds and Plants Vs Zombies. His Dad bought him an iPod so he can behave whenever we are busy.We also use this to keep him busy when we are travelling so he won’t make any noise in the bus. It works but not all of the time. We have to give him something out of ordinary because he doesn’t play toys so we don’t bring toys with us because he will only throw it.
Playing online games once in a while is okay but rest assured that it will not affect the studies and social interaction of the students and make us depress when we are losing a game. It is a form of an entertainment so we should balance things from playing and working. These are two different things so we should know what to prioritize first. You can take a break and play games but never substitute work time to playing because it will only result to unwanted circumstances.
As of now, my Facebook games are unblocked already because Elijah is using my account so he can play whatever game he wants. I let him play with my supervision.
