A 9-year-old girl developed dependence on Fortnite: she played at night and forgot to go to the toilet

The father of the 9-year-old Briton was forced to send the girl for rehabilitation to specialists because of her unhealthy addiction to video games. In particular, we are talking about the popular Fortnite Battle Royale, for which the girl strolled for 10 hours, playing at night secretly from her parents. My father found her in the morning on pillows soaked with urine: the girl so strongly did not want to tear herself away from the screen.

The girl played at night, slept in class. When my father tried to take the console from her, he got it in the face. “We could not imagine, when they let her play, about the developing dependence of nature, which will affect her mental health,” the Daily Mail quotes the girl’s mother. She was so addicted to the game that she simply did not want to waste time going to the toilet.

Suspect the wrong parents began when the assessments of the daughter and her constant drowsiness, fatigue, told the teacher. It turned out that the girl spent about $ 70 on cosmetic items in the game every month.

Parents contacted a psychotherapist who helped fight addiction dependence. Now he works with the girl.
