Not Just a Game violent video games and children

Children today are becoming increasingly more addicted to video games.

A large majority of these video games depict graphic images of violence that have negative effects on a child's development.
Many parents believe that violent video games are useful tools to relieve their child's negative emotions.

However, there are numerous other, more beneficial hobbies that children can get involved in.

Music, for example, has been proven to increase a child's overall satisfaction with his or her school and social life.

Encouraging a child to be involved in other hobbies such as playing a sport or musical instrument will lead to a happier adolescent and a more productive adult.

Parents of children under the age of twelve need to limit the number of violent video games that their children play.
