Too much computer gaming will turn your kids into "ignorant zombies', study says

Kids who play computer games for hours on end become "ignorant zombies" around the house, a study of parents revealed yesterday.

Researchers found mums and dads of kids aged seven to 15 notice a marked change in their children's behaviour after a long session on a games console.

Some went as far as to say their kids were "unreasonable"," ;aloof" or "angry" after spending longer than half an hour staring at their computer screen. (Culture)

I've seen these scientific numbers before...
Wow those are the same exact results from a kid...
watching TV
playing Yu-Gi-Oh
running around outside
Playing at Chuck E Cheese
having a sleep over
coming home from school
being told to do chores
eating too much candy
Waking up in the morning for school
being told to go to bed

or basically this crap happens when a Kid is doing something fun then all of sudden it's taken away.....sounds like a Kid just being a Kid.

So they went from already acting like zombies to acting like kids?

edit: someone said the same thing above. Great Minds.. ;)

Quote: ""This is contributing to few kids playing outdoors, getting fresh air and it's impacting on their school work and creativity.""

Yeah thats true if the parents let them. We are still talking about 7 to 12 year olds, right?

Quote: "One in four said they became "ignorant zombies", one in five said they became "little brats", while 28 per cent said they b e c a m e lethargic.?

Science!

ROFL

edit: I found this websites twitter is @daily_record and I let them know that article was total rubbish. :)

Asked to know what journal this data was taken from.

If your child becomes an Ignorant Zombie or lethargic after being told to get off the computer...well that's better than the Kid screaming like a Banshee and rolling around on the floor like a fish outta water before crying themselves to sleep or stopping by being bribed with candy or cartoons....

then the viscous cycle starts all over again when that's gone.
