A 15 year old boy from Ohio has collapsed after playing X-box for 4 day straight. According to Yahoo News "WCMH-TV reports that the Columbus teen collapsed and was hospitalized Tuesday after becoming severely dehydrated. His mother says he emerged from his bedroom during the four days only to pick up snacks or take a quick shower.The boy was so engrossed in playing Modern Warfare 3 on Xbox that he made himself sick." more 

As a parent, would you have allowed this?

Really?!  Who is the parent?  This wrong on so many levels.  My son wants THOSE parents.  As a child, even I would have wanted those parents.

I feel blessed for the parents I had/have.  They taught me to be a productive, positive, productive, independent adult.
