Hey, tell me, your kids are cybernetic? If yes, then I just feel that here is the time that you must pay your attention to the issue. Yeah! There are many negative effects of violent computer activities (especially games) on children. In fact, computer is the best tool to develop your children intelligence. But the truth is that computer games have a negative impact on the development of children, especially contributing to aggressive and anti-social behaviour. Playing computer games has a greater negative effect because it involves interactivity which impacts on learning processes of the child.
I know that, we live in information age, where knowledge is power. Internet has come to stay and it is happening. Life styles are changing. Newspapers are available on the web. Cinema tickets can be booked on Internet by logging on to the relevant sites. Entertainment concepts are changing. One can watch movies; listen to songs just by connecting to these sites sitting at home. There are sites on every subject in the world. Yeah! Everything at your finger tips.
But many studies around the effects of violence in television, movies and video games on children have taken place over the last twenty years. The outcomes of various studies have shown that there is a negative effect of consuming violent media. Just take a look at Research on the Effects of Media Violence.
When it comes to computer games, however, research by Douglas Gentile and Craig Anderson, indicates that violent computer games have an even stronger effect on children’s behaviour because of its interactivity. Still all we can find a big video game controversy in parent’s mind and a world platform. Whatever it is! As a parents and care takers we all must realize the long term effects involve in learning processes of your kids. So, just need your attention…!!!
