Everybody knows that one person that just doesn’t ever wanna play any games. We respect them for it and maybe they know why games are bad for you. And here I am telling some reasons why games aren’t always good to have around.
To some people that are very concentrated and take school very seriously they would often not play games at all because it can distract them from school work. It is important to them that they will not be drawn away from their studies.
When you play a game you like it is pretty much like an addiction. Mostly you will just get addicted to it and only think about it instead of other things that are supposed to be on your mind, like school or work. So when playing your favorite game you also would probably just keep playing it right? Well that can be a problem because you will be wasting your precious time.
Some people play games that are way too young for their age, but they still play it anyways despite this rule of underage game play. When kids do this they tend to get be promoted to do these things. An example would be that if the game include violence and your child plays it under age then he will be encouraged to do whats on the games.
Playing too much games can lead to social isolation. The child will not want to join other people when he is outside, the child won’t be good at making friends and would end up sad. A lot or should I say all parents don’t want this for their child, they want the child to be socially active and always making new friends.
What I am talking about here isn’t the confusing that lack of understanding. This kind of confusion is not being able to understand the difference between reality and fantasy. The gamer would simply not be able to tell what us a reality and what is a fantasy.
Impulsive behavior and attention problem
A child that plays too much games can face impulsive problems and also attention problems. The child would simply act without thought and also would try to seek less attention.
Poorer performance at school
A study by Argosy University’s Minnesota School on Professional Psychology found out that the more addcited you are the more you would argue with the teacher, fight more at school and score lower grades. the tested and have found this to be true.
