We’ve all heard that there may be a link between a child’s exposure to violence and their future use of violence as an acceptable conflict-resolution strategy. This may mean that the more a child is exposed to violence at an early age, the more the child may think that violence is not only okay, but also helpful in some scenarios. This issue is the reason why violent video games are so controversial, especially to young children and/or preadolescents who are likely to be most exposed.
At Firestone Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, it’s not just your child’s teeth we care about. We want to make sure all of our young patients are safe and healthy in all aspects of their lives! Below, we’ve put together a list of the pros (yes, there actually are some!) as well as the cons of violent video games:
Clearly, it’s up to parents to decide what’s best for their children. We just want the parents of our patients to be well informed on all issues that could affect the health and well being of their children. For your child’s oral health needs, please contact Firestone Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, located in Firestone, CO!
