Changes in the industry confer responsibility upon parents of middle age school going children of deciding to approve their children to play video games. According to Ward 2010, parents who allow children to play video games face the challenge of regulating the potential negative impacts. Some of the video games feature violent acts and graphics that that trouble parents because of their immediate and long-term effects. The research will demonstrate how a particular category of parents belonging to children at some middle school age allows their children to proceed with these games. The research will also focus on finding out the parents’ feelings about the influence on their children’s behavior. The study will, therefore, give a lot of concentration to middle school-age children and groups of their parents.
I have never found it interesting since childhood to play video games. It, however, surprises me to find that children can take the biggest portion of their hours playing a video. Consequently, the children end up getting addicted to video games. What I find devastating is that some of the video games have violent characteristics accompanied by its graphics. It, therefore, is possible that the playing child will have behavioral change after playing it for a long time. Surprisingly, parents still let their children continue playing these video games and assume the detrimental aspects of the game to the well-being of their children. It is, therefore, my biggest concern to find out why my parents would give room to me and my younger to neither play similar video games for longer times nor purchase the violent video games for us.
