Kids are susceptible to computer addiction especially to online games and online chatting.
There are very negative results of instatnt playing online games by children. Because they spend their free time on playing their social growth is very limited. While they should meet new people and learn how to get new friendships they sit in front of computer. They can always meet someone by Internet but this kind of contacts will never replace in-person contact. Kids need to learn how is social life, how to get new friends, deal with disagreement, fights but also leran what is love, hate. Relations with other people lead to growth and development of a child. While making online friends who like them in real life the can be true outcasts. Because of that we have to make sure that we will learn them about bad sites of online gaming and how harmful it can be. Secondly, spending too much time sitiing in front of computer can lead to sedentary life. No physical activity can’t give development. Instead of playing on playground with other children or playing basketball they sit and play basketball online. It isn’t even a small substitute for physical activity. Lack of exercise can lead to problems with spine, obesity and other health problems. Kids more active will be more developed than children who spend their free time playing online games Skill games can develope some kind of manual skills but still it can’t be a substitute. It is very important to inform and learn children how dangerous playing online browser games can be.
Sometimes even parents go crazy because of online gaming. Marriage from South Korea was so drawned in a game that they starved they child to death. Parents didn’t have time to take care of their baby because they played online game. Ironically the game depended on taking care of virtual baby. They were so involved and absorbed with game that they forgot about their real baby. Newborn was feeded only once on 12 hours, when the Internet cafe was closed.
