People think video games are good for spending time withkids. Videogames are so addictive that they can spend time playing games when they are notin control. Video games can be beneficial or bad for your children inlife. For example, childrenwho learn to play chess at young age usually have a high level of intelligence.
However, it does not apply to violent video games. “Gentile & Anderson saysthat playing violent video games can increase aggressive behavior becauseviolent behavior continues to be repeated throughout the video game. Thisiterative method has long been considered an effective teaching method forreinforcing learning patterns.” (2014). Everything iseasy to addict when repeated. Secondly,Violent video games have as many effects as the number of games.
One commoneffect with all of them is addiction. This is going to be horrible because itmay not be productive at home anytime. In other words, he may not study at home or do homework /assignment. Thus, his performance atschool will definitely get worse.
In addition, a child can sacrifice his or hertalent by attending a music class for the purpose of playing violent games. Inaddition, another negative effect of video games is that teens spend too muchtime playing games than playing outdoors. “Video gamesare making teenagers socially isolated. Youth who play too many video games areless likely to be less addicted to extracurricular activities such as reading,writing, and sports participation.” (2017). And they will soon have difficulty in sociallife. Third, another effect that has caused ripples on parents and society in generalcan be the violent behavior of children playing such games.
Several studieshave been conducted to investigate the relationship between these games andviolent behavior of children. For example, “We have started a consistentrelationship with the use of violent video games and increased aggressivebehavior, increased aggressive cognition and aggressive behavior, reducedpro-social behavior, emotional attachment to the attack and reducedsusceptibility.” (2015). Violence against video games is in murder on gravel. Thereare also observations on these games and their players where children who actnaturally aggressively prefer to play this kind of game to others. This observation reduces the likelihood that violent games will lead to violentbehavior by children. When interviewing, some children who play this type ofgame say they do not negatively affect the game.
This is certainly supported bynonviolent action.It has also been observed that violence on television, such as in action moviesand news, is more likely to lead to child violence because it is a violentgame. However, keep in mind that children are likely to experiencephysiological effects when playing violent games. This effect increases bothheart rate and brain activity. Inconclusion, when many people think of video games, they think of them as socialstupidity. Scientifically, that argument is not often notice up. Manystudies show that games can have a positive impact on the health of adultathletes.
But for children, the results are mixed. So, whatis the real story about video games? Are they good or bad? Arecent study by the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute in Melbourne suggeststhat children’s use of TV and video games can cause emotional and behavioralproblems between the ages of 8 and 9. The use of video games among boys wasassociated with greater conduct and emotional problems. A boy playing anaverage of 2 hours per day per week is at 2.6-times greater odds of havingconduct and emotional problems.
(2017). It is not bad that young children play video games. However,people need to know that if kids play games only, it will not have a goodeffect for growing kids up well.
