Many young children and teenagers have heard their mother’s incessant plead to get away from the screen. I want to tell the parents that video games play a very important role in enhancing the logical reasoning process of the children. Incredible machine or the angry bird applications compel the kids to think and adopt the best strategy to win the necessary points. They devise creating methods to resolve the puzzles quickly and effectively.
One of the best advantages of the gaming technology is that it improves the hand and eye coordination in children. In a shooting game, the user has to take aim and fire the gun as soon as he/she spots the target. Coordination between the actual action and the cerebrum is essential to notch up the win. The regular practice could lead to improved motor skills that might help the child to become successful in the real world as well. According to the researchers, adults who are skilful in playing video games become impeccable medical surgeons. Video games have quite powerful and positive effects on many different aspects about behaviour and make the children think deep and help them achieve everything they want to do. But we must remember that too much of anything is good for nothing.
