    • This is true! This study began when the children were 9 months old and ran through age 7. The study ended up finding that children playing no games were more likely to show increased problems (except peer problems), compared with playing for less than 1 hour daily.

    • From my experience, video games are no different than watching tv and other sorts of past times. Those behaviors are from how they are raised and what they experience.

    • Well videogames don't make someone violent, its bad parenting. Videogames have labels telling us which age groups should be playing what. If an infant grows up only seeing CoD, well that's a key point in there life for mental development so it will effect them negatively (1/2)

My dad was really strict and I’m his only daughter so he was overprotective and never let me leave the house except to go to school and he was kind of abusive. Video games helped by giving me an escape.
