Video Games do not affect the behavior of children and TV - even as

It is considered that the key to the emergence of American students with an AK-47 in colleges lies in the bloody and violent video games. Around in the Call of Duty and CS - and then all the real life drag. Well, at least, so say clever aunts and uncles in the TV.

As a result, it has been spent 7 years, and slice covered in the control group 11 thousand children aged 5 years and older. Results of the study are laid out in the public domain, and take a lot of pages.

Study focused on the link between watching TV, playing computer games and consoles, and deviant behavior (strolling from school and throwing paper balls at the teacher wishes to shoot at classmates in the yard during recess).

The main conclusions of the study 7 miletnego:

- If your child watches TV more than 3 hours a day - it has a higher likelihood of behavioral problems. Deviant behavior is associated with TV and only with him, not with the games.
- Video games are not associated with deviant behavior and child / adolescent bullying. As physicians, psychologists and sociologists have not revealed the connection between the fact that children play on the console, and the fact that they lose attention in class, exhibit hyperactivity, emotional and other problems.
- Watching TV does not necessarily lead to problems in behavior, but children who have or may have problems with behavior, watching television more often. Videogame such a connection is not established.
