But a couple in China sold all three of their children in exchange for money to feed their Internet gaming addiction. They sold their 2 sons and 1 daughter for a total of $9,700. After they were turned in by a family member, they claimed they didn’t know selling their children was illegal.
While many might think this is just a case of bad parenting, we have to look at it as more than that. Gaming is a real addiction – it’s not just a hobby for some people. It can overrun reality and make individuals do things they never would have dreamed of doing.
Selling a child - their own flesh and blood - for a game?
This is real.
