Screen Sense: Part 3 – Video Game Addiction

Kids are getting more access to screens, but screen addiction stretches beyond kids, and beyond video games

CHARLOTTE, N.C. –  In the early days of video games, you had to go to an arcade to play your favorite game.

Today, not only is it easy to play at home but it’s also easy to play on the go with personal gaming devices and cell phones. That makes addiction more possible today than it was in the 1980s.

In part 3 of our Screen Sense series, why the problem is bigger than video games.

For a quiz to see if your kid may be addicted, you can visit this link from Families Managing Media. For detailed video game reviews you can visit Common Sense Media.

You can see part 1 of our Screen Sense series here, and part 2 here.
