My son is 10 and has always had obsessions whether it be legos, turtles, video games. Video games and online games seem to be his #1 right now.

I thought I was alone. My son is almost 12 & builds games. He plays Roblox & Minecraft & would play them all day if he could. Then he has to tell you every detail of every bit of his game.

My son loves telling me the details of Lego star wars etc. and it can be very very tedious! I watched this social story but i think the computerised voice is very unnatural. It's not all bad though, I've found that my son's expertise in games had earned him kudos in the playground! I use a timer to limit gaming times.

My son also has an obsessions with online games. It is the only time he is content. I was shocked to hear others mention Mincraft and Roblox. He loves those. He just turned twelve. I always feel so guilty because he doesnt have friends he wants to play with and would instead spend his time on these games.
