Some people think playing computer games is bad for children on everything. Others think it has some positive on the way children develop. Discuss both sides and give your opinion.

In today's world,
computer
games have become very popular
in
Suggestion
with
teenage and adults as well as they are more eye-catching than they used to be a few years ago.
However
, some people think that
computer
games are just a waste of time and is inimical to the children, whereas others believe that
such
games help children evolve. I shall put some light on both the views given here before getting towards the conclusion. I believe that playing games would be beneficial in some ways if played within a certain limit. To start with the one side of playing games, that could be detrimental in several ways. It affects children's behaviour, mental and physical health.
For example
, children may suffer with weakened eyes, laziness, and obesity like problems.
Moreover
, children feel bemused between reality and fantasy very frequently. It is sometimes less gratifying and less fascinating for them to play outside games like Tennis, Football, etc. Children get so addicted to these games that sometimes they keep playing for hours and they may act violently because of
such
games which could eventually lead to aggressive behaviour.
In contrast
to the drawbacks, there are some pros of playing
computer
games. To take a note, one can learn decision making skills, problem solving skills, coordination, collaboration, and multi-tasking. Playing games would encourage them for risk taking and exploration. Apart from these, it would
also
help children not only how to behave in teams, but
also
how to handle teams by team building and teamwork. Physically, children can improve their hand-eye coordination by using them simultaneously. To be concise, I opine that drawback of playing
computer
games overweigh its advantages. The only condition is that children should play games in moderation.
Hence
, parents should emphasize more on playing outdoor games than
computer
games to keep their children more active and healthier.
