Video games. Good, bad?
The research seems to say that it really just depends!
The stark dangers in many of today’s most popular video games are indisputable. Research, science, and experience all affirm this! But some researchers are known for touting the benefits of video games. What they fail to mention is that the beneficial games are some of the least popular while the overwhelming majority of the most popular games are extremely dangerous.
To say that video games are beneficial without discerning the difference between good and bad ones is like saying a shot of whiskey helps an alcoholic feel and perform better. We need to teach our kids that moderation and discernment in any aspect of life keep us from being dependent on anything and much more productive in everything.
