Gamers spend less time on homework
A recent survey from 1,500 US children and teens 10-19 years old showed that adolescent gamers spent 30 percent less time reading and 34 percent less time doing their homeworks than their non-gaming counterparts.
The study showed both groups spend a similar amounts of time with parents and friends, but homework was something else, WebMD.com reported.
"Although gamers and non-gamers did not differ in the amount of time they spent interacting with family and friends, concerns regarding gamers' neglect of school responsibilities (reading and homework) are warranted," the researchers said.
The survey also showed that the participants played video games an hour on weekdays and 90 minutes on weekend days.
I won't speak for Rocky but when we were still in school, I don't play video games. Just some TV and lots of reading, reviews and homeworks. It's just a matter of discipline and self control ;)
