Yes, they break down the mental barriers and may cause some one to react in violent ways to solve problems.
nope most games actually teach kids stuff
No. However, violent video games where a child, or an adult for that matter, spends a good deal of time shooting or destroying others, seeing violent deaths and injuries, may …become desensitized to violence which can create apathy - lack of caring - about real life people and their pain. They might spend so much time seeing violence on the screen that if they see violence in real life, they might not care or think much of it and that can be dangerous. Or they might think the gun they pick up for real is just like the one they play on the game and not really understand or relate fully to the fact that they could or do hurt someone with it for real. This isn't to say every child who plays violent games is vulnerable to this, but it really depends on the child's personality and how much time they spend on such games. And not all video games are violent.
Only if you are sensitive, easily manipulated, or just plain stupid enough to repeat whatever you see.
A lot of our behaviors come from the way in which we grew up with our parents. Look back into the past for information on how your parents grew up and compare the behavior. In… todays world we have a lot of information about abuse and it is talked about a lot more openly. A lot of behaviors back then were not considered abusive. Doing research on how your family was treated will tell you if a pattern of abuse will occur or has been occurring, education is the key factor in recognizing and changing behavior.
no its not that bloody like gears of war 2 or 3 its just when u shoot blood does come out but u can hardly see it and its made for boys named ali
well ok think about it for a second violent video games huh i wonder They are bad for children because they set a bad example and might get some pretty bad role models for …their lives. However they also teach the children to protect themselves :)
yes but it really depends on what type of game it is.
Yes, recent research has shown that the game breaks down the barriers that prevent people from violence. Add to this growing up in a violent society, or in an abusive family t…he game enforces the idea that it is all right to solve problems through violence.
yes, about 75-80% of the time.
No they do not, video games help your child with stress and have a fun hobby to do instead of getting in trouble. but the only way it will help them is if the parents are supp…ortive with the child.
Studies have shown that violent video games can cause aggression inchildren. However, it's not the content of the video games thatcauses the aggression so much as the frustrat…ion over thedifficulty of the games.
yes violent and gore videogames do effect ur chlds behavior if u play to many of them. Violent video games affect a child's behavior as much as watching a gory horror film …or reading about a murder mystery would in the sense of being exposed to violence. Although video games do affect a child's behavior, it's not the violence that can really affect a child's attitude but the inability to cope with competition and the winning or losing of a competition that truly affects the child's psyche. (For example, if a child has never lost a competition and only knows how to be a sore winner/loser, not teaching ways to cope with win/loss whilst allowing them to continue to play highly competitive video games could encourage bad behavior when competing in real life.)

Video don't cause bad games directly. The TV does. Have you ever heard that TV turns your brain to mush. That because when you watch TV for a long time, chemical changes happe…n in the brain, making it feel like "mush". You probably play video games a lot and this can happen. It kinda messes you up for a while and you wont feel quite right. Limit your time on your TV and study, and your grades should be fine. Do good in school! :)
yes they do
