Teach Some Manners
Review of Should Parents Limit Their Kids Time Playing Video Games? by Jarisleif

Advantages: Sets examples for children
Disadvantages: None

There is a real problem with the youth of today and I think that is largely down to the majority of them getting their own way. They get their own way because disciplining them is now outlawed to the point of just telling them not to do something, which n ... Read review

Good review by mozzie76
It sounds more to do with kids being spoiled in general and parents/guardians perhaps siding with their kids rather than the general public when their kids are being brats/act inappropriately rather than the/a connection to video games. Setting limits as a form of discipline makes sense though I don't agree with slapping them as a general rule on the principle that if you wouldn't hit an adult or a stranger why hit someone smaller/weaker let alone someone you love. It depends though and I agree that getting away with such behaviour encourages it. by ladyofflame

Start Weaning Your Children Off Video Games

Advantages: Some games are educational and can be fun
Disadvantages: Some children my get addicted to the games and parents might lose control

My answer is Yes! And I’m going to explain my point of view According to recent studies, each additional hour children play video games or watch television may double their risk of obesity. As a child of the 80’s, my siblings and I played with toys, not ... Read review

Yes! Yes! Yes!
Review of Should Parents Limit Their Kids Time Playing Video Games? by ravingreviewer

Advantages: None.
Disadvantages: None.

As a child, video games and suchlike that I had to play on more than likely amounted to Pacman and the like. Which meant that in some ways, I found other things to do in order to pass the time - or even to see some of my friends! A lot of my time was spen ... Read review

interesting perspective x by MsTricia
Many consoles have the option to set time limits and age restrictions. Alas most parents ignore these features (whilst at the same time blaming games for misbehaviour rather than acknowledge that they are too lazy to supervise the young uns.) Saying that most games are a waste of time is harsh. The same argument could be made for most forms of entertainment. by Dentolux

Review of Should Parents Limit Their Kids Time Playing Video Games? by ryanando

Advantages: Great tool for learning and discipline
Disadvantages: can suck brains out of peoples heads at times

I grew up just as gaming consoles had really taken a leap forward. I got both ends of the spectrum (no pun intended there) from incredibly basic graphics and short, easy to complete games right through to mind-blowingly complex animation and story lines t ... Read review

Great by wazza115
War is money to these people and that is a fact, and aslong as there is war, these leaders will be richer than you and i... hence why they keep it turning using propaganda... Open any paper and look inside... tell me what you see, our "leaders" are scum, the laws and boundaries created, arent based on morals, just finance, and some idiots opinion.. we dont need a laws, they do not stop bad people, we need to teach kids to base there decisions on morals, because the future is all we have,all these old and grey politicians are being exposed as peodophiles, the peodos set the rules that you and i have to live by...Work with the law, or ignore it... rather than work against it... you spend your life working for these people, what do you get for it? more so at the end? NOTHING... whilst they have nice lives, we suffer by LiamNolan

Disadvantages: Delusional video game 'impact' focus groups

Certain Games Stop Young People Socializing
Review of Should Parents Limit Their Kids Time Playing Video Games? by jojodixon

Advantages: Some consoles are multi-player/family games
Disadvantages: Isolates kids, violent graphics, play outside less

This generation's idea of "playing" is eyes locking to a screen, holding consoles and watching violent graphics. Of course I am generalising and do hate it when adults presume ALL kids are like that. This is untrue. However, I admit a large majority of bo ... Read review

Review of Should Parents Limit Their Kids Time Playing Video Games? by Lily_AnnM

Advantages: Some games are educational and help kids develop their minds.
Disadvantages: Some can be violent and spending a lot of time infront of a screen damages eyesight.

I would be lying if I said I agree with kids playnig video games but at the end of the day, they are just kids! No video game will change their opinions or way of thinking, or will it? There are benefits in video games Studies show that people who p ... Read review

very insightful review. Pity you would have liked more time with parents - some think gifts are the answer when children really want more time and activities together. by rolandrat123
A very well written piece. It's good to see someone mention the benefits gaming can have in addition to touching on age ratings. Some sectors of the community regularly call for games to be banned as they are violent. Why scrap a multi-million pound industry just because some lax parents are not fussed about little Timmy playing Call of Duty? Using that logic TV and movies should be banned too. Even though I am a gamer I am for parents limiting how much their children play on consoles. Anything done to excess is bad. Staying indoors all day playing the Xbox is no good as is playing outdoors all the time at the expense of your studies. by Dentolux
