Study: Girls More Socially Affected Than Boys By Time Spent Gaming
BOSTON (CBS) – The effect of video games on social development in children may depend on their gender. A new study out of Norway finds that time spent gaming may have more of a detrimental effect on girls than boys. Researchers followed more than 870 kids from age 6 to age 12. They found that while gaming did not appear to harm the social skills of boys, 10-year-old girls who spent more time gaming had weaker social skills and were less likely to make friends two years later than girls who spent less time gaming. For many boys, playing video games is an integral part of how they socialize with one another. But fewer ...
