ARE COMPUTERS GOOD FOR CHILDREN ?
Nowadays, a lot of children are addicted to playing computer games or video games. I believe there are some advantages and disadvantages connected to this.
There are lots of advantages. Firstly, children do better at school because they know how to think quikly and solve problems. Moreover, they can do research on the web about school projects. Furthermore, they are able to lern more information and enrich their knowledge. Also, games are very fun, entertaining and relaxing.
However, there are some disadvantages to playing computer games. At first, children may forget important things they have to do in their daily or social life, like the schoolwork, the housework or the celebrations. Additionally, their grades will be worse, they will have gaps of knowledge at school and they will not be able to keep up with their classmates. Also, if they play too much, they will not be able to focus or concentrate on anything else. They may not be fit or good at sports, so they will end up like couch potatoes. In addition to this, they sleep less and this might affect their growth. Finally, some games teach violence to children.
In conclusion, there are both positive and negative aspects concerning the use of computers by children. In my opinion, parents should control the time children spend in front of the screen. Parents should explain them that they ought to have a plan and follow it.
