Recently I started noticing strange language and a loss of innocence in the way he speaks. He’s 7. I realized it was the fortnite. My biggest mistake was not turning off the chat and allowing him to use a mic. Previously we had the Switch hooked up to the TV and would only allow him to play on the TV. Not exactly sure when he transitioned to the mic but it just happened over time.
After doing some research I realized parents are fed up of their kids addictions to fortnite. I so don’t want to be that parent. My son plays 2-4 hours a day (I realize that is a lot and will immediately cut it down).
So my issue is this: I’ve seen the effect of games like fortnite it’s (serious anger issues in some people) and I actually want to delete it all together.
Has anyone here done this? I’m worried he will be fine in the beginning but as soon as school as back or he meets up with his cousins he’ll want it again.
I guess what I really want to know is if anyone has figured out a way to manage it in a healthy way for their kids, or cut it out cold turkey and how that worked out for them?
