They were addicted to video games.

The General Department of Human Rights at Dubai Police has received many reports from children, who threaten their parents to call the police if they don't give them more freedom to do activities that they enjoy doing.

According to Fatima Al Kindy, the head of the social support department at the General Department of Human Rights at Dubai Police, a case was reported about a child who broke some of the house decorations because his parents stopped him from playing video games, Al Bayan reported.

The child had called the police, saying that he was suffering from mental pressure because of his parents.

On contacting the parents, it turned out that the child was addicted to video games, which was affecting his studies and sleep pattern.

In other similar cases, children had reportedly attacked their parents, she added.

More than seven cases were received from children aged between 12 and 16 years old - calling the police to complain about their parents' 'unfair behaviour' towards them - while investigations revealed that the children just wanted more freedom for other activities.
