A few years ago, 17-year-old Kenneth Soh's world revolved around computer gaming.
Kenneth did not socialise much with his classmates and friends as he would rather
spend time with his online or virtual friends. He was also skipping school as often
as three to four days a week, and would game late into the night. At the peak of his
gaming obsession, Kenneth would game from 12 midnight to 7 in the morning during the
Chinese New Year period.
Kenneth's parents were also unable to control his gaming habits as he refused to
listen to their advice. To avoid detection, he would even hide under the blanket in
his room to play games on his laptop. His school teachers also tried to reach out to
him, and finally referred him to TOUCH Cyber Wellness for counselling.
