Video games really cause bad behaviour in children. It does not matter if they are in the age groups of 2 to 6 or 7 to 11. In different ways and in different video games, it influences children and others different ways. It depends on the genre of video game this is. If the game has violence then this will not teach children much or teach them nothing at all.

In my opinion, video games are not ALWAYS causing bad behaviour in children.
Video games have classifications for ages, in this case parents/guardians should
be aware which classification the game their children are playing is classified to be at their aged appropriate level !
If parents/guardians know what their children are playing,
and they are aware it could lead to futher attention/notice, then they were warned that their children may or may NOT follow the example set before them!

What if the game is not all that violent, then is it still causing bad behaivour in children?
In this case, (in my opinion) the game is not causing any bad behaviour/bad examples to demonstrate to the children. !

I see my oponents view and i can understand why she would say this. People of all ages of all kinds, they all have their own level of "danger",(i guess i can call it). And by "danger" i mean, their own level of inappropriate violence. i just saying that kids dont know when to keep going or to stop, or when and how to choose the right game. Most parents are at work while their children come home after school. That gives the kids at home to do what ever they want! If they know they are only suppost to be undersupervision by their parents but they are just to addicted to that game, then they are just going to go right a head and play the game they wan't to play!

As my oponent has stated, I can't help but to expresss my opinion that
that is exactly when children are being attrackted into being bad behaviour.
They think "oh well there is no adult in the house, no one will see me playing this game and they will never know" so they go a head and play the game and they don't even really notice the unappropriate age level !!!!!!!!!
Children will do anything to play "THEIR" game without being told that they should turn it off !!! :))))))))))

I feel that this is not true !!! What I am trying to state is that if children ARE at home alone then they are addicted to their game and infleuenced to have bad behiour!!!!!!!

In conclusion, I think that video games DO bring out the bad behaviour/bad side of children !!!!

Reasons for voting decision: "In conclusion, I think that video games DO bring out the bad behaviour/bad side of children !!!!"- said by con. Con is supposed to prove that video games do not bring out bad behavior. Pro, please capitalize your I's. It's a pet peeve of mine. So, spelling goes con even though my advice would be to lay off the exclamation marks, con. Con, I think that you alluded to something like irresponsible parents cause the behavior but you didn't explicitly say it and you affirmed. Use sources next time.
