 Video Games Enhance Essential Life Skills In Kids: EU Report
Playstation or Xbox video consoles are good for children and teach them essential life skills, that's the conclusion of a European report.

The report from the European parliament has concluded that kids who spend hours every day playing video games may not be damaging their brains, as many parents fear.

oine Manders, the Dutch liberal MEP who drafted the report, said: "Video games are in most cases not dangerous. We heard evidence from experts on computer games and psychologists from France, the US, Germany and the Netherlands and they told us that video games have a positive contribution to make to the education of minors."

The study was meant for schools across Europe to consider using games for educational purposes.

"Schools should pay attention to video games and inform children and parents about benefits and disadvantages that video games can have," the Guardian quoted the report, as stating.
