          “I’m Afraid of My Violent, Video Gaming Addicted Son”

          February 01, 2019

          PLAYING “I’m Afraid of My Violent, Video Gaming Addicted Son”
          Jennifer says her 12-year-old son, Alex, is obsessed with playing violent video games. She says he has spent 20 hours straight killing people in his online gaming world.

          Jennifer says her son’s violent gaming addiction is not only exacerbating his numerous behavioral issues, but she fears it may be the catalyst for him becoming the next school shooter. Jennifer says her son’s behavior is so extreme, he has even stabbed her with large metal tweezers and set a fire in an attempt to burn down their house. Jennifer has captured her son’s behavior on film and shares her shocking home video footage with Dr. Phil. You don’t want to miss what happens when Dr. Phil sits down with young Alex.
