86% Of Parents Think Teens Game Too Much

A recent study found 86% of parents think their teenagers spend too much time gaming. The study surveyed 963 parents with at least one child between ages 13 and 18. Interestingly enough, the study also found 71% of parents believe video games have some positive effects on kids. However, the overwhelming opinion of parents is that gaming causes their teenager to spend less time on other activities like sports, reading, art, or music. Experts recommend parents set limits for their children’s gaming time.
