Recently there has been much interest in gaining a better understanding of the effects of computer games in children's life. Some feel that playing games on technological platforms helps children to develop better for their future.
, I agree with those who are of the opinion that playing computer games will negatively impact on their daily life. In
essay, I will proffer the justification on both viewpoints as well as adduce all the arguments which might support my own belief.
Those who espouse the former opinion claim that children can enhance their mental ability. The proponents of
view maintain that when these youngsters play games
as ludo, chess, etc., which require their constant focus on the game, they can boost their mental power through defending other opponents. Maybe there is some truth in
claim, and some empirical evidence can be provided to support it.
, a 2007 study conducted by a team of researchers at the University of Toronto found that those students who were highly engaged in playing games during their childhood were able to achieve higher grades than other who did not play any games.
, one can argue that there is more to the story than
research tells. Personally, I firmly believe that playing games will impede children's development because they get easily distracted from their academic lifestyle. It goes without saying that many children, nowadays, are playing computer games throughout their whole day because the audio and video visualization of these games traps them to play more. Not to forget their parents are
-to-dust, so they would not be able to restrict their usage. If these kids play more and more of
kind of games, they will lose their concentration from school life and later they won't be able to complete their studies. My friend, Tina, is a shining example of
. She used to play online games with her friends online after school hours daily. She enjoyed it a lot, but before she knew it, she
cause to fall by or as if by delivering a blow
behind from the academic grades and had to repeat many subjects again to graduate.
To sum up,
playing games may improve mind power for some children. I still hold to the opinion that
trend hurdles children's growth as they might lose their concentration from academic subjects.
