Disadvantages of Internet and video games to kids

Kids nowadays prefer to spend so much time playing games online than play with toys or the traditional games such as hide and seek or tag game. You rarely see them running or play around in the neighborhood even on weekends. You can find them loitering in Internet shops or are hook on video games at home. Internet and video games are suppose to provide entertainment, music affiliate, and relaxation to kids as an after-school activity. However, they give more time to virtual games than attending their classes or finish their homework. Addiction is apparent when they start to miss regular meals, neglect personal hygiene (like take a shower or brush their teeth) or skip school just to play video or Internet games.  Image source: Internet
