    “I feel that I have changed my sleeping patterns drastically, I particularly frown upon all-nighters now. I uninstalled CS:GO around a month ago by choice, since I began to show no interest in it. I was noticing all of the things that were designed in the game that made me want to keep playing. Now, I have really good single-player experiences and I do it less often. It’s fun again.”

    “When we first started the game aware program I was one of the most addicted gamers in there. In two weeks of holidays I spent a total of 5 days of video gaming (130 hours). Now I am able to stick to the strategies and when I game I only play for one hour. That let me start Kung Fu again because I had stopped it due to gaming. So I am encouraging everyone by saying that it is not impossible to control your gaming.”

    “The GameAware program educates both gamers and parents on the benefits (mastering an activity/ community engagement) and pitfalls of gaming (work-like addiction / disengagement with “real-life’). Our family has benefited from the GameAware program as we were able to develop a strategy to curb our son’s excessive gaming, that is flexible, manageable and ongoing. With a welcoming approach, Andrew has developed a program that young adults understand, respect and find success with. If your children have a gaming addiction OR if you think they may develop a gaming addiction, look no further – your answer is here. Thank you very much Andrew. “

    “An amazing program that produces results. The program hits a nerve with my boy who took on board all the teachings and acted on them. I had been trying for years to get him up and active and off the computer but it took this program to actually do it. I still don’t know how. The facilitator is a kid whisperer.”

    “This program provides the knowledge and strategies for the kids to add new experiences to their lives above and beyond gaming without excluding it. It does so without making them wrong. They learn to give themselves self respect and inspire themselves regulate for their ends, not just for their parents’ ends.

    We did the holiday program and the parent sessions are great as they taught us adults how we can be just as messy in our behaviours as our kids are. I learned that my self regulation can be a role model for my kid’s behaviour. It was confronting but rewarding when I was able to feel and regulate the same susceptibilities that my child was subjected to – and I am the adult!

    A great learning and information program I would recommend to any parent with a gaming child. At first I just didn’t get it, why did he game so much? All will be revealed..”

    “The GameAware Holiday Program was not only amazing for my son in teaching him to self regulate & be ‘aware’ of his gaming habits & behaviours but equally as important it taught me not to confuse screen time with gaming. Ironically as part of the parent side of the program our kids taught us how to play computer games. I have a strong sporting background & knew I’d be competitive but didn’t realise I’d get such a rush from the games! It was such an ‘A-HA’ moment when I finally understood this is what makes gaming fun & addictive! Don’t get me wrong, there are still ups and downs but now that we use the strategies at home, things are a lot calmer.”

    “The program has been very helpful in making me aware of my own behaviours as a parent and the fact I don’t push my son to be responsible for his actions. Ultimately change comes from within and he needs to be the one to regulate his behaviour.

    As a teacher myself, I have found that I even change the way I speak to students in class when they don’t do the right thing. I’m feeling better prepared to help my sons move forward.”
