AMA to vote on "internet/video-game addiction" as medical condition

The Sun-Sentinel reports that the AMA will vote on making internet/video game addiction a medical condition. Which means, This will get passed off to the Psychiatric community. Yup, you read that right, little Johnny will be going to the shrink for being overly into playing video games. Hey parents! Turn off the dang box! What we have is a lack of Parenting, not a medical problem. This is ridiculous and now the medical community is enabling bad parenting. Doctor Spock was the worse thing to happen to this country when it comes to parenting. If time out doesn't get er done than it is time to up the anti and yes, spanking is necessary some times. Stop releasing your little monsters on th rest of the world! Your kid does not need you to be their friend, they need you to be their parent! Got it?
