Been up till 11 p.m. playing video games again?

Gaming can be a lot of fun. But when it starts to take over your life, then it's an obsession. If you find yourself getting into arguments with others over games, or if you have a friend who has started to blow you off to play games instead, then the time has come to take a cold, hard look at gaming. Gaming will give you the know-how to make sure you come out a winner.

Video gaming can be used to improve skills and build friendships and communities. But it is also often an escape from the world, and it can become an addiction. This book in the Deal With It series looks at the realities of gaming and what happens when a love for the game turns into an obsession.

  • Gaming 101 helps you decide when gaming becomes a problem
  • Letters to the “Conflict Counsellor” offer advice to guide you through the rough patches
  • Quizzes test your ability to evaluate gaming situations
  • A resource guide puts helpful organizations, books and web sites at your fingertips.
The Deal With It series helps young adolescents cope with conflicts in everyday life and aims to promote peaceful homes, schools and communities.

Diane Peters has written extensively about health, women's, and parenting issues and teaches magazine writing at Ryerson University. She is also the author of the Deal With It volumes Girlness: Deal with It Body and Soul, Privacy: Deal with It Like Nobody's Business, and Procrastination: Deal with It All in Good Time.

Attractively illustrated, this book is intended for ages 10+.
