instead of playing video games the parents should be taking the children outside of the house for some much needed physical activity. this is a healthy way of spending time with the children.
putting too much focus on gaming can lead to become sociopaths with no real grasp on reality. spending too much time gaming also leads towards an unhealthy lifestyle combined with a higher risk of obesity.
the verdict? game time is not a bad idea but should be limited. physical activities should always take priority. instead of video games try turning to mental games such as board games or word games.
