Understanding your son or daughter’s gaming behavior this past year

Instructions: This screen assists people in making decisions about the way their son or daughter engages in gaming activities. Please answer these questions based on your son or daughter’s engagement with gaming over the past year (i.e., 12 months).
For clarification, “games or gaming” are catchall terms which include online (i.e., the Internet) and offline engagement with games (e.g., video games, console games, handheld games, cellular phone or tablet games, computer games) or use of any other device capable of playing games, and includes the viewing of current or past games being played or broadcast (e.g., eSports).

*This tool is adapted from the Brief Biosocial Gambling Screen (BBGS) developed to measure gambling behavior, and the DSM-5 criteria for IGD. Developed by Cosette Rae, MSW, LICSW, ACSW
