Moments later, her mother came into the room. "Shasta," she said, "all you ever do is play that game. You never move from that spot!"
"Aw, mom," Shasta said. "I just like playing a lot."
"Yeah, yeah," her mom said, "but it isn't healthy to be in front of the TV so much, and you are in need of some heart-pumping exercise." She reached down and tried to pull Shasta to her feet.
Shasta pretended that she couldn't stand up. She wobbled like she was going to fall over. "Mom, I'm incapable of standing up! My legs are jelly. They can't hold me!"
"Then you need to strengthen those muscles! Go outside and run around! I see your friends playing basketball across the street. You can come back in after an hour."
Grumbling, Shasta shut the game off and dragged herself off the floor.
The next time she sees Shasta playing video games, Shasta's mom will most likely
- carry Shasta outside as punishment.
- command Shasta to do her homework.
- tell Shasta to do something more active.
- tell Shasta to let her little brother play.
