Game Ownership May Interfere With Young Boys' Academic Functioning


Parents of young boys may want to encourage moderation when it comes to their kids' video game habits. According to new findings in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, owning a video-game system may hamper academic development in some children....

Further analysis revealed that the time spent playing video games may link the relationship between owning a video-game system and reading and writing scores. These findings suggest that video games may be displacing after-school academic activities and may impede reading and writing development in young boys. The authors note that when children have problems with language at this young age, they tend to have a tougher time acquiring advanced reading and writing skills later on. They conclude, "Altogether, our findings suggest that video-game ownership may impair academic achievement for some boys in a manner that has real-world significance."

Game on? Video-game ownership may interfere with young boys' academic functioning


NO FUCKING SHIT

How much money did it take them to figure this out?

I'm thinking we all have the dubious honor of paying for the aforementioned studies. But perhaps I'm mistaken.

We can only hope that a commission is appointed to distribute grant money to get to the bottom of this.

I grew up with games, as did most of my friends, and we have succeeded academically and have gotten good education.

You do. That's the problem when you support big government.

That is actually true, Wii is helping me teach my four year old son about baseball in a heathen land of cricket.

God bless Wii.

No matter what, DO NOT take your kids outside to play, or buy them a bike!

Video games are the way to go!

I can't believe they even have parks anymore, wth? They should tear them all down and put in a Dave and Busters in each and every one!



*It's sad when you go up a ramp, or a stairs, and kids from age 7 to 11 are winded and tired from it.

And Utah has the right idea. Get rid of all those wasteful national parks and monuments.
It is a waste to take kids to em anyway.

If they want to take their kids they can go play in the coalpile.
