Video Games

When I was a kid back in the 1960s and 70s, children spent most of their free time playing outside with their friends in the sandbox, at a swimming hole, or in the woods, climbing trees. There were times when we would also play board games like Monopoly or chess, or just shoot some basketballs. However, we live in a different world now. More and more kids play video games hours on end, often without adult supervision or guidance. The question is what kind of impact is this having on children's social, emotional, and physical well being. What about online gaming? Share your ideas and experience on this topic.

  1. I think that there should be some kind of balance in whatever activity someone does. I don't think it's healthy to spend too much time doing just one kind of activity and neglect others. Moreover, Playing video games is the most popular pastime of this time and age and it's said that it helps children learn how to multitask -- something I believe most people from my generation don't know how to do.
