You know they are playing too many computer games when even the 3-year-old, who doesn't play, starts talking about giving his older brother a "potion" to help him feel better.

How to know a three-year-old is brain-damaged:

1. Everytime you go to the store, he says "I don't want to go in the stroller." You say, "but you have to go in the stroller, because you don't listen, and you run all over the place." He promises that he will listen this time and not run all over the place. Mostly you ignore his protestations and promises of good behaviour, because it is all for naught, but this time, you figure you are only going in a short time, so you give him another chance, and it takes not one minute for him to run off and not come back when you call.

2. He takes a pair of scizzors to the mosquito netting to let the cat in through the basement window, instead of letting her in through the door.

3. He breaks a toy because "he doesn't want it to turn red".

4. You go to the massotherapist, and while you are on the table, he steals your clothes and runs off with them.
