I’m worried about my brother

My younger brother is 13 years old. Since the last 9-10 months he is addicted to playing video games on his cell phone and laptop. He is very moody and rude and whenever my parents take his phone away he doesn’t eat and misbehaves i.e. starts shouting and hitting his parents! He doesn’t concentrate or do any other work, be it studies, prayers or chores. His schedule is school, come home, sit with his phone and then sleep. My parents are having a lot of trouble lately and even I worry about him a lot. He is big enough to understand his priorities. How can I help him?

The responsibility of educating and correcting their children rests, first of all, on the parents. Your parents have probably made the mistake of giving your brother too much too soon: “his cell phone and laptop”. He became selfish, rude and violent: “hitting his own parents”. Obviously your parents and you are having a lot of trouble. At the age of 13 he is not “big enough” to know his duties and respect his family. I suggest at this point that your parents get the help of a psychologist for understanding the root cause of this problem and how to correct it. From your side, help him by giving a good example of respecting your parents and helping them.
