According to Griffiths, Professor of Gambling Studies in the Psychology Division at Nottingham Trent University, “Videogames can be used when examining individual characteristics like self-esteem, self-concept, goal-setting and individual differences” (Griffiths 2002).

What if we are leading are kids right into a trap for the rest of their lives. Video games could be slowly training their minds to do fowl things. For example, most video games that were produced in the year 2013 to 2018 have gun violence or strong profanity, other than games made for children or games rated for everyone. Yes it is true that video gane can be fun for a kid, and isn’t the only way for them to hear and see violence and profanity, but it is one of the most efficient ways.

In our time, technology has become one of our essential things in life; specifically video games. Video games are electronic system used to run games.

By playing violent video games, it can provide opportunities for children to explore virtually the consequences of violent actions and to develop their moral compasses. According to a study, “The Next Level of Research on Electronic Play: Potential Benefits and Contextual Influences for Children and Adolescents”, by Dorothy Salonius-Pasternak and Holly Gelfond , Violent video game can simulate the moral issue such as “war”, “violence”, and “death” without real world consequence. A researcher at the Harvard Medical School Center for Mental Health and Media wrote about her research: “Many war-themed video games allow or require players to take the roles of soldiers from different sides of a conflict, perhaps making players more aware of the costs of war."
Children around the world play adult content video game And many parents say it is bad for their children; however video games can actually help their children learn. Approximately 90% of children in the United States play video games, and more than 90% of those games involve mature content that often includes violence (Park, 2014). There are those that believe video games are detrimental to society, however playing video games including those with mature content can actually be beneficial to both individuals and society by increasing knowledge expanding the ability to react positively at real life situations and improving cognitive thinking skills. Children that play video games not only have the potential to increase their ability to learn right from wrong, and to improve their cognitive thinking skills the game can also increase a child’s knowledge.

For example, one reason why video games are not bad for people is because contrary to popular belief, they actually help with calming the user and relieving some of their stress. “A 2012 study at Texas A&M...showed that both men and women who play violent video games long-term seem to be able to adopt mental skills to handle stress” (Dube para. 8).This makes clear that the statements of violent video games being portrayed as causing violence and aggression are, simply put, wrong.
In the study, the psychologists determined that there was a negative correlation between violent video games and the psychological effects on the teens playing them. As claimed by Farrar, “The impact of violent video games is not just limited to the personalitylevel risk factors of each gamer but may also be a byproduct of an interaction with the game’s contextual features” (Farrar). Oftentimes, when a school shooter is investigated, they are shown to regularly play violent video games such as Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto. It is believed that
Many such issues have caused severe back problems in children and thus, several researches concluded that playing too much video games and spending half or more of the day in front of video games and screens causes psychological problems along with physical problems in children.

Support and refutation of the same issue statement will also be provided in this paper to provide evidence of the research findings in this context.

I started to gain more knowledge on how this technology exactly effects children 's behavior and social skills. At first I thought video games only negatively effected a child 's behavior and social skills. My understanding changed was I realized the countless amount of positive effects that can result from attentively playing video games.
