Computer game addiction is a worrying aspect of the modern-day technologically able youth. By using video games as a reward, you can teach your child, or children if you have more than one, the value

playing noneducational electronic games on occasion may aid this process; for example, choosing which road to take in a car race can teach a child about the consequences of his actions if he ends up
falling into a ditch. Certain games can improve hand eye coordination, intelligence and problem solving.
