43 lbs. in 6 months. That's terrible.
Put it another way, 43 lb and 6 months for a 15 year old is Crisis level stuff. Certainly it happens from time to time, I'm just hoping that you are exaggerating to make a point or something. That's a pretty bad negative Health effect video game playing right there.
No exaggeration, unfortunately. I gave you the exact weight gain amount in the exact timeline. Trust me, I had a long talk with the child and his mom.
Ultimately, the parents own the majority of the responsibility. The mom saw this happening, yet she did nothing about it. Her reply was, “I tell him to exercise and stop playing fortnite so much, but he doesn’t listen.” Always kills me when a parent says something like that, as if they don’t have the authority over their child. I made sure to set her straight.
