Write a summary on the dangers of video games

 
Good morning ladies and gentlemen. Let me first start by introducing myself. I'm Dr. Stanley Amaladas, a child psychologist attached to the University of Manitoba, Canada. Today, i would like to share with you a little about video games. I have children at home and I know how much they love playing video games. In fact, children would sometimes skip meals and family outings just to spend time in front of the computers playing these games. Often, we think it's just a phase they will outgrow, but more often than not, they do not outgrow it.

The dangers of such games are many. For one, when children spend hours in front of the computer screens, nothing else matters. They lose interest in their studies. What becomes a priority, is their game. They become addicted to the games and will become agitated if they do not get their daily 'fix'.

Moreover, when children spend so much time alone in their little virtual world, they have no interest in socializing with other children. This will lead to antisocial behavior.

These games are expensive too. An original copy of the Counter Strike game children these days are so fond of, can easily cost a hundred dollars at least. Nevertheless, they are willing to spend their entire allowance on just one game.

But all is not lost. In my next session, I will share with you, what we, as parents can do to tackle this problem. For now, I thank you for your kind attention.

Answer
 

Video games can bring about a lot of ill effects. Children who play too much video games tend to lose interest in their studies when the games become a priority to them. Moreover, the games can be addictive. Children become antisocial because they hardly mix with people. In addition, children tend to spend too much money on these expensive games.
