Letter: Video games distract from learning

Published:

 

Do you like video games? Well, I don’t. Have you ever researched and found out what they can do to us kids? Kids go home and go straight to their video games and not to their homework.

The online article “Media violence: Advice for parents” shows research that by the time kids reach 18 they are on video games 28 hours a week. Time spent on video games hinders learning. The report found that kids who are so into video games do not eat dinner. If they don’t eat, they don’t do well in school; they can’t think. They will not have a good education if they are unable to focus.

That’s why kids should not use video games.
