Concerns about Video Gaming

Relates To Problem Use

- Spoke to how adults/ parents can try any differentiate between problematic use by such questions, becoming excessive, less socializing, grades and or health declining.
Clinically Relevant

- I liked how this article spoke about age-appropriate games. I suppose I forgot that there may be a fair amount of children/ teens out there playing games that are rated for only adults. This may be a good question to ask if working with youth, if it’s a “M” rated game.

- If using games that are higher level for age appropriate this article speaks to perhaps they may become more aggressive or fearful is exposed to high levels of violence in gaming.
