3 Have you ever wondered? How do you take care of it when a girl is annoying you but you don’t want to be mean? What if your best friend is being really mean to you and he won’t admit it? What if you have a friend who is making you choose between her and another friend? What is the point of telling someone you’re mad at them? They’ll just make more fun of you or get even madder. I’ve been trying to ignore this kid forever but he won’t stop bothering me. I want to tell an adult but I don’t want them to freak out.

26 Video Games Rules Rule: Because I lose track of time when playing, I realize I’m unable to accurately gauge how long I’ve played. Therefore, I won’t respond to a parent when they tell me time’s up with, Pushback: What!? But I’ve only been on for a few minutes! I’m about to get to the next level! Let me just throw myself off this cliff! It’ll only take one minute! I promise! Rule: I’ll pause the game within one minute after being told my time is up. If I don’t comply, I understand that my parent will turn off the screen so that any unsaved progress I lose will be because of my actions, not because my mom turned off the screen. Copyright Rosalind Wiseman 2013

27 Rule: When I play any game with other people, the family values apply. Therefore, I can’t use homophobic, racist, and sexist terms when communicating with other players. If other players do, I will immediately tell them to stop, leave the game, complain to the server or find another group. Rule: I won’t buy videos or apps without my parents’ explicit permission. If I violate this rule, I understand that I’ll be forbidden to play for the next week without exception and the amount of the charge will be deducted from my savings account or allowance. Copyright Rosalind Wiseman 2013

28 Playing Time Rule: I’m not allowed to play during the school week unless I’m waiting for something. During weekends: I may play up to 90 minutes per day. Rule: The weekend is hereby defined as Friday (after school) through Sunday night. If by Saturday night homework/studying/projects for the upcoming week has not progressed satisfactorily, all gaming rights for Sunday will be put on hold. Rule: On weekend mornings, I’ll take care of my responsibilities before playing. I’ll brush my teeth, go to the bathroom, put on some form of clothes, eat, and make sure all pets are given the same care. Violation of these rules will result in automatic suspension of play until the next day. Copyright Rosalind Wiseman 2013
