As a parent, there is no shortage of things to worry about, when it comes to putting your child in front of a computer screen or mobile device such as a tablet or smartphone.  At Game Learning, we’re not here to tell anyone how they should be parenting, but what we can do is share some findings from studies.

For example, one study from Oxford University which was ultimately published in the journal Pediatrics found that children who play video games on a computer or a console for less than one hour each day tend to be more satisfied with life, and more social than those who don’t play video games.  However, that same study also made it clear that developing minds who play video games for more an hour don’t report the same benefits.

According to Research, Playing Video Games (in moderation) is Beneficial to Kids

Similarly,, seconds the notion that when it comes to video games, moderation is key, citing recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics, which “recommends that parents place consistent limits on time spent using any media. This includes playing video games on gaming consoles, tablets, or smartphones. Using media should not take the place of getting enough sleep or being physically active.”

Similarly, in a recent article in the Los Angeles Times, Professor information at UCI and president of the Higher Education Video Game Alliance affirmed that most researchers embrace the idea that “play is good.”  She also added that “Game play is a form of blowing off steam. It’s a form of leisure. And it’s the one media that turns screen time into activity time.”
