Sweaty hands maneuver sticky joysticks, hammers away at keyboards and eyes remain glued to bright displays. Hours pass before they get tired, hungry or thirsty. Nature's conversations were kept and voices from mothers were drawn down. The video game mania has caught the younger generation like a fish in a barrel. Young people play lively imaginative games, jump on roofs and beat the bad guys all day, and yet do not go outside to walk on the same ground as they have imagined through their games.
The rise of computer games has seen a generation full of health problems such as obesity, sleep disturbances, vision impairment and back problems from a young age. These young people get some physical activity, less sleep and are exposed to high levels of mental activity and sometimes stress. The problems revolve around each other to become more serious in the long run.
It is up to the parents to give their children a preference for traditional games. Go out into the sunlight and run, jump and roll around. During their educational years, it is important for children to get lots of exercise so that their muscles develop better. Sedentary habits from a very young age can lead to a variety of problems with getting older.
There is also the problem that computer games are extremely addictive and can lead to the release of quality, a lack of social ability and a general indifference to everyday activities. Many parents complain that their children do nothing but play computer games, not even spend time with the family. It often happens that a child puts up their meal until they are ready to play the game where the food has disappeared and the meal is long.
Traditional games like football, baseball, basketball and most other sports are very good for young children. Although video games aren't all bad, kids fail to moderate the time they spend on these games. Parents try to limit their children, but most of them cannot deny their children for a long time. The best way is to make them love the outdoors more than their fantasy worlds indoors.
Try to slowly introduce the concept of physically based games to the kids. If they do not move away from their consoles, use motion sensor-based games to introduce them to sports. A gradual interest will build up after which they may prefer the real to something virtual. Coax them slowly to reduce video game time. Don't ban it right away, but insist on reimbursement practices that will slowly push the kids towards better games.
These games like anything else can be harmful if they hang too hard. It's important to understand that these games are great fun for your kids and to explain to them that there are other games that can also be fun. Being too strict is likely to lead to rebellious behavior that causes more problems than it solves.
