If kids 13 and under are playing an educational video game for school purposes then your kid gets in trouble at school and a new study out of Oxford University shows that if you let your kid play video games for an hour or less per day your kid will be more social ( Huff Post)

Children under 13 playing video games should not be allowed. It is not a bad thing to play video games, but it does lead them to do bad things. To begin with, the percentage of children under 13 playing video games has increased within the past few years because of the new game systems and technologies there is nowadays. According to Entertainment Software Rating http://www.esrb.org..., the average gamers age is 39, and from those who have been surveyed they were questioned for how many years have they been playing video games and their response was for more than 8 years. This generation has gotten worse, and if no action is being taken, all that your children would do is sit around with a computer or game system in their hands and become so addicted to It that they would be closing out their social life instead of creating one.
