Specifically wondering if there are any conclusive studies out there on the adverse effects of video games (non-violent ones, like Doodle Jump) to kids. And do violent games show effects?  What effects?  Maybe none?  That would be a huge relief.  Is there anything that says that those strategy games are good for kids?

My kids want to watch videos and play games all the time. Are non-violent games worse than bad Disney shows like iCarley, Good Luck Charlie and crap like that? (I have an 11 yr old girl who loves those) I am open to your thoughts.

 

Thanks!

Hello,

 I'm sorry I don't have any info to share but I am bumping this up for more attention.  There are lots of knowledgeable parents out there.
