Video games desensitize children to violence more than TV or movies, because the player becomes an active participant in the violence.
Set Time Limits
Spending too much time playing video games can take away from time spent on school work.
Praise His Progress
The instant gratification and constant rewards of video games cause children to become easily addicted to playing.
Curb the Content
Children who become excited by violence also tend to become over-stimulated by video games. Many of the teens involved in school shootings played violent video games.
Serve Up a Balanced Entertainment Diet
Parents should limit video game play to help balance their child's entertainment diet. Encourage your child to participate in other leisure activities that provide mental and physical exercise.
