Sample

I don’t think kid shoul d be play8ng video games all teh day. 

My son loves a game name is Fortnite. He’s ten and all his friends play the games too.  

So, I think it’s not good for kids for three reasons. One, he wants to play but doesn’t want to do homework. Two, he wants to play even if he just wakes up int he morning. 
3. He acts like addiction. I means is he can’t stop playing. Eveen I tell him, no don’t play that, still he plays. 

So, finally, I had to say no more game for one week but then he mad. If he mad, I’m ok. I just want him to be healthy or happy. 

My son loves a game called Fortnite. He’s ten and all his friends play the game too but I don’t think kids should spend a lot of time playing video games.  

In fact, I don’t think it’s good for kids for a couple of reasons. For one thing, my son wants to play but doesn’t want to do his homework. [See note in feedback.]

The other thing is that he wants to play it even if he has just woken up in the morning. He seems like an addict. He can’t stop playing even when I tell him not to play, he still does

So, finally, I had to say no more games for a week. He got mad but I don’t mind. I just want him to be healthy and happy. 

You did a great job here. You made a lot of small grammar mistakes but your meaning was clear.

1. Organization
Try rearranging a few sentences to make them connect a little more smoothly. 

Before
I don’t think kid shoul d be play8ng video games all teh day. My son loves a game name is Fortnite. He’s ten and all his friends play the games too.

After
My son loves a game called Fortnite. He’s ten and all his friends play the game too but I don’t think kids should spend a lot of time playing video games.  

2. Support
This is a good point to support your idea with a little extra information. 

For one thing, my son wants to play but doesn’t want to do his homework. [ What will happen if he doesn’t do his homework?]

3. Organization
Try to avoid the following pattern. 

I think ABC. 
I feel this way for three reasons. 

This pattern is common for some tests but is generally considered boring and overused. 
If you do use it, there are some expressions which will make it more natural.
