THE IMPACT OF VIDEO GAMES ON CHILDREN AND TEENS

January 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Shawn R. Marshall, LPC

Wednesday, January 25, 2017 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.

In this ever changing world of electronic usage, this 90-minute presentation focuses on how video games potentially impact children/teens negatively. More and more research shows that video games have addictive qualities and can affect the brain much like gambling. We will explore the science behind V-games and how current information has shown that V-games can affect kids’ social lives, academic performance and sleep. We will discuss information for parents about better boundary setting and rules that are needed to help your children to better manage this electronic minefield. $50 per individual/or couple.
