    My name is Hannah Maroun.
    i am a 4th grade student at Sevens Oaks Elementary School.

    I have some questions about video game addiction for a class project.

    What are the effects of video game addiction?
    How do some kids get addicted?
    What are some treatments available?
    How does it effect how video games are made?
    Are there any good effects of video games?

    Dear Hannah,
    How are you? You’ve raised some very intelligent questions. While there are different opinions on the effects of video games on kids, in a recent survey by Sony and Yahoo!, it’s said that video games are good for kids. You can read the survey findings along with other kids-related information on another blog: My Home Foundation that I run. For video games survey, you can click on the following link:

    However, sometimes companies commission such surveys to promote their own products and services. So you must not trust them blindly. Rather, you should discuss it with your parents before you reach any conclusion.

    In my opinion, children should avoid video games as far as possible and focus on traditional, physical sports and time-tested methods of learning.

    Thanks for writing. Please do write again.

    Bye.
    Rakesh Raman
