Health Benefits of Video Games

Game On! How Video Games Can Be Beneficial

Video games have become nothing short of ubiquitous, and try as we might, it is becoming harder and harder to keep them out of lil one's hands. While almost every toy company claims there are educational benefits to its games, some actually do help tots grow and develop necessary motor skills.

Several elementary video game consoles, such as the V.Smile TV Learning System ($50) and the Leapster2 Learning Game System ($60) feature games that aid in developing math, spelling, and writing skills. Their handsets and styluses help develop motor skills and hand-eye coordination that will be used for a lifetime to come. Seeing the immediate cause and reaction is gratifying to kids and allows them learn how to adjust their actions in the future. As tots grow older, the games and systems grow more sophisticated in their ability to be customized to work on a child's learning needs and allow parents to track their progress. Before you know it, your lil gamer will need his or her own iPhone.

Do you allow your wee ones to play video games, and if so, have you found them to be helpful?
