Child aggressiveness and the video game

“I made $1million playing video games!” (Said no child ever…) There is no profit in children gaming. In fact, to the negative side of the ledger, children who spend over three hours a day playing video games are more likely to be involved in physical violence, be hyperactive, and lack serious interest in school – or so says the latest study experts that examined the effects of video games as related to the time spent playing them. The University of Oxford re-discovered (yet again) that the time children spend playing video and on-line games is definitely linked to behavior problems. The real story in this story is that there is absolutely NO significant factor in the types of games played. These scientists found no link between violent vs non-violent games and real-life aggression or a child’s academic performance when compared to the amount of time spent on games. In fact, strategy and puzzle games didn’t even bring higher grades to the children who played them vs non-playing peers yet the amount of time spent playing them proportionately vexed the child’s behavior.

Quantity matters over quality in this case.
