Video Games

The rise of virtual reality violence games may be having a detrimental effect on our children. Parents can help mitigate these effects by limiting the amount of video game time, not allowing consoles in the bedroom, and banning Mature Audience rated games for children. Additionally, children can have nightmares from these images. The American Pediatric Association recommends limiting video game violence for our children: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2016/07/14/peds.2016-1298 and
