Concerned about game addiction among the young, Culture Ministry officials in Thailand have proposed a revised curfew for online game shops.
The Bangkok Post reports that, under the new guidelines, youth under 15 could only remain in gaming establishments until 8pm. Those from 15-18 could stay until 10pm. Shops which allow minors to remain past the curfew could have their operating license suspended or revoked.
Some, however, believe that even more stringent measures are needed. Anya-orn Panitpuengrat, who heads Thailand's Family Network, called for a three-hour time limit on gaming for children.
The Thai cabinet will consider the proposed curfew change next week.
