Some people say that playing computer games is bad for children in every aspect. Others say that playing computer games can have positive effects on the way children develop. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Currently, many people argue that if
children
play
video
games
, it can negatively affect the
development
of
children
, yet remaining people disagree with the opinion. Personally, I believe that
this
development
has both pros and cons because of the following reasons. Granted, one may argue that playing
video
games
takes a lot of
children
’s
time
to finish the
games
, so
children
spend
time
on unnecessary and meaningless
activities
. It is true that the average
time
of each game’s stage is 20-40 minutes, so some
children
can not spend
time
on more crucial
activities
such
as doing homework, household chores, etc.
However
, nowadays, with the
development
of technology and science,
video
games
play an important role in educational
activities
.
For example
, through a surveyed period, before studying any kinds of subjects,
children
should improve mental health by training their brain with puzzle
games
. Admittedly, one might argue that if
children
stay at home and play videos too much, they can become passive individuals and develop difficulty. In some cases, the perspective can be right because without going outside and endeavouring to directly communicate with different buddies, they cannot improve their life skills.
In contrast
, due to the pandemic period when people stick at home and impossibly commute to schools or stations, playing
video
games
play a crucial role in maintaining the balance between physical and mental people’s health and
activities
. Nowadays, thanks to the appearance of
video
games
,
children
can keep communicating with their friends, and they proactively accept new unfamiliar traditions and cultures from international friends from many countries. In conclusion, from
