How much video game time is enough? 

Many kids argue with their parents for more video game time.  I am talking with my 8th grade brother, Dare, and my parents. 

 

Me:  How long should kids be allowed to play video games?

Dare:  I think as long as they want as long as they put the important things first like grades, sports, family & friends. 

Parents:  We, as parents, think 2 hours a day as long as grades stay up and they participate in physical activities.

 

Me:  What are the pros of being on that long?

Dare:  You can socialize with friends more often especially when you haven’t seen them in a while.

Parents:  You can virtually hang out with friends and it still leaves time for going outside and studying.

 

Me:  It’s getting warm outside.  Do you think you should go outside more?

Dare:  Yes.

Parents:  Yes.

 

Me:  Why do you feel that way?

Dare:  It is not good to sit in a dark room and get no exercise.

Parents:  You should enjoy the sun and the nice weather while it lasts.

 

Me:  I have talked to my parents and my brother, Dare.  They have told me their opinions.  I have my own opinion.  My opinion is – kids should be on video games 3 to 4 hours a day.  They still have time to go outside and play with kids in real life.  I would like to thank my parents and brother for sparing their time and answering my questions.  Thank you.
