Increasing influence of video games

By Jaya Khare

There is no school going boy around who is not into some sort of gaming. With the rapid penetration of the mobile phone, gaming has become much easier and handier. There is now no need to sit on the computer. Just a handset does the job equally well, though computers and play stations are also much in vogue for their bigger screen, better resolution and other high-end gaming options.

Whatever be the platform, the crux is gaming is a viral affliction that has taken a large section of the young population in its grip. It is such an addictive engagement that once into it, there is no getting out.

Friends and peer associations further boost this addiction as games become a common topic of discussion and one is considered a part of the ‘group’ if one is into gaming. One who is not aware of games is made to feel isolated and obsolete. Adolescents need the feeling of affiliation and they think gaming is one of the tickets to get that affiliation.

It is smart, trendy and modern to talk, live and win games. One not privy to these is a dimwit and nerd. Parental influence plays a big role in instilling that confidence in children that one can be smart and modern even without playing games. Parents rather need to instill this belief in their children that gaming is a bad influence which only dulls the mind and makes it unidirectional and unaware of happenings in the environs around. It is an obsession and doesn’t lead anywhere.

There are much better things to do in life. It is a non-productive occupation that only gives momentary and artificial stimulation to the mind but eventually degenerates it. Also, parents need to check how much time their kids spend on computers or phones and what exactly they do in there. Parents need to supervise their children’s activities, including the friends they associate with. That is the first check and most effective deterrent.

Despite all their busyness, parents need to make out time for their kids and stop them from anything that is detrimental to their mental or physical health and progress. It is unfortunate that urban parents are today so busy in their professional and personal pursuits that they hardly have much time to even sit and talk to their wards. But that is a wrong and regressive approach and parents need to be cautious, aware and engaged with their children, or else they would be the first to repent.-Window To News
