Playing A Video Game For 4 Days Straight Might Be A Bit Much

Remember when kids used to play outside?  People say todays generation is wasting away in front fo the TV, playing video games.  In this case, sadly, its true.

Tyler Rigsby, of Columbus, Ohio, was hospitalized after a marathon-playing session of “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.” His family told WCMH that her son had been playing at least four days, possibly even five.

Rigsby only left his room to pick up snacks, use the bathroom and take a quick shower. On Tuesday morning, his mother, Jessie Rawlins, decided to bring him to his aunt’s house.

“It’s like he was looking at me but he wasn’t there. It was like he was looking through me,” says Jennifer Thompson, Tyler’s aunt, told WCMH. “We were talking and I heard a thump and I looked over and he just fell.”

Rigsby had collapsed. His mother said he turned very pale and his lips became blue. Then he collapsed two more times.

Medics were called, and Tyler was taken to the hospital where he had an IV attached to him to replenish his fluids. He was diagnosed with severe dehydration.

Can you say absentee parenting?  If your kids was practically locked in his room for even a day, wouldn’t you make an effort to get his butt out of the room, take the game away, something?

That’s why they are the kids and we are the parents.  Sure, the kids would sits there for days on end.  Its our job to make sure it doesn’t happen.
