Scientists Explained How Much Video Gaming Is Too Much
Video games might improve a motor skills, reaction and even academic performance in children when played in moderation. However, a recent research finds that too much video gaming connected to social and behavioral problems.
Spanish researchers found that any skill enhancements linked to gaming among those aged 7 to 11 started to max out after about 8 hours of gaming per week. And those who played 9 hours or more were more likely to have social and behavioral problems.
Dr. Jesus Pujol, the author of the study, says: "One to nine hours per week seems to be safe, but playing more than nine hours - one hour on weekdays and two hours on weekend days - may be not recommended for children 7 to 11 years old."
