The other main thing that Video games get blamed for is the ability to hinder a students education. A study was done with 217 teens and researchers had examined both personalities and video game habits, what they had found was “22 kids who played video games the most each day were the likeliest to have behavioral problems, exhibit hyperactivity and have trouble academically, although the effects were "quite small in magnitude." Even if a kid sat in front of the screen for 3 hours a day the affect the game would have on them isn't enough to change them.
For all the all the problems people say video games cause children may actually get benefits from playing for a little everyday. Allison Fine Mishkin the study's co-author states that “Individuals who regularly played less than an hour a day of any type of game were actually less likely than their non-playing peers to fight with or bully" I'm not saying that video games have nothing wrong with them and that you should let children play on them as long as they want, but their not as bad as people say they are.
