The impact on children who play Video games
Children that play violent video games for extended periods of time show many abnormal behaviors. They tend to be more aggressive, are more prone to confrontation with their teachers and may engage in fights with their peers, and you will soon see a decline in school achievements.

Rico, my sister’s ex-boyfriend, failed his fifth grade year because of video games. He was addicted to play station 2. Everyday after school he would come to our house and play our play station 2. He would always tell his mother and my mother that he didn’t have any homework. Rico would hide his report...
