Addict behavior? Really? We are talking about a kid here, right? Brains aren't fully formed yet. They whine and cry all the time....it's how they express themselves when they don't like something...I don't see why this is called addict behavior...maybe in an adult, but in a kid? Give me a break!!! I think someone is looking for another way to get funding or to draw attention to themselves.... Most reasonable parents should just say "No" and let the child run off and cry...until they get ready to move on.
The child has been using the device since she was three and she usually plays games on it. But when her parents or doctors take it away, instructing her to do other things, she exhibits the classic addict behavior. Doctors have even spotted withdrawal symptoms in her.
