We hold on to stress and anxiety instead of getting rid of it with enjoyment. Seven out of ten adults in the United States say they experience stress or anxiety daily, and most say it interferes with their lives as reported by the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA). Video games can provide that fun for us all. Or can be an escape from reality. When it was eight years old my parents went through many custody battles over my brother and me.

Well then kids stay up extra hours just to finish a game or even just a level just so they can say they finished to all their friends mostly everything is a competition to kids now a
He starts clapping and jumping up and down screaming, "Baaaneeyyy". Anderson (2006) claimed that young children have a difficult time telling the difference between fantasy and reality, they are highly susceptible to the socializing effects of television, especially those shows on children's television channels and animated programs (p. 287). I am so pleased to see how happy Landen is. He even knows what remotes he needs to turn on Barney. When he is ready to watch Barney, he will grab the remotes and bring them to me.
Mackenzie Dean 28 May 2015 How Clash of Clans is Taking Bullying to the Virtual Playground In this article, the author is talking about the very popular iOS and Android game, Clash of Clans, which is easily accessible from the App Store. He talks about visiting his 10 year-old nephew and realizing that he was apart of this online world via the use of his mother’s cell phone. The author’s sister, Leanne Citrone, was aware of the gaming usage, but did not think much more about it. It was brought to her attention at her son’s school related function that there was a form of bullying taking place by her son through the gaming world. Leanne, still clueless as to what was going on, attempted to fix the problem.
Be Supportive: When we least expect it, children are listening. Whether they seem mesmerized or distracted by the television, their iPods, or their cell phones our words, both positive and negative, stick. They will begin to model or try to become what they think you think of them.

Natale 1 Brooke Natale Professor Thoreson English 101 10 October 2006 Unplugged In Marie Winn’s essay, “Television: The Plug-In Drug,” she states that television once was viewed as something that was positive and brought families together; it now has more negative effects. Winn puts it best when she talks about “early illustration…a family cozily sitting together before the television set, Sis on Mom’s lap, Buddy perched on the arm of Dad’s chair, Dad with his arm around Mom’s shoulder…twenty years or so later Mom would be watching a drama in the kitchen, the kids would be looking at cartoons in their room, while Dad would be taking in the ball game in the living room” (par. 5).

He became interested in arcade games when he was a small child. His father always took him to the local bar when he was on “babysitting duty.” Henri soon fell in love with the games and received his own pin ball machine as a Christmas present (Doane Henri 2013). Arcade games have been around for quite some time now. Some refer to them as coin-op machines. The newer machines are all involved with other popular video games that people like.
But no matter how well I performed at home with friends, during school recess the stigma of “short kid” stuck with me while choosing teams. Still concerned as senior year rolled along, I visited a growth specialist. Pacing the exam room in a shaky, elliptical orbit worried, “What if I’ve stopped growing? Will my social status forever be marked by my shortness?” In a grade school dream, I imagined Chris “ESPN” Berman’s voice as he analyzed the fantastic catch
I chose this article because I have young children. They always want to play my iPhone and iPad. My son always think and talk about the iPad games after he had played with the iPad three days and less than two hours per day. As I searched parents around me, I found 100% of the parents let their children play with their iPhones and iPads. Some of them give the iPhones or iPads to make their children silent and to have a peaceful time after their have worked all day.
