How to curb addiction to video games

This story gets recycled about once a year & repetition has not made it less odious. Cheongryong Self-Denial Training Camp on Daebu Island, South Korea is a military camp run by retired marines for elementary & high school students to learn discipline. They are taught self-flagellant exercises in mud & snow which make the masochism of medieval monasteries look soft by comparison. Some children are sent there because of parental confusion about how to handle kids addicted to video games. This might suggest the South Korean regime (occupied by the US military) is as militaristic as that of North Korea. Or is there a difference between goose-stepping & forcing your kids to crawl through the mud?  (Photo by Ahn Young-Joon/AP)
