Video games may be good for girls
A new study might give parents a reason to praise video games. Researchers at Brigham Young University found several positive outcomes when girls between the ages of 11-16 played age-appropriate video games with their parents.
The girls showed higher levels of parent connectedness, lower aggression and had better social interaction with family members. However, the study found the opposite was true if girls played games with their parents that were not age appropriate.
The boys in the studied were not affected one way or the other.
