I heard that video games make children less sociable. Do I have reasons to be concerned?

While playing a game can be a form of escapism for children, just like a book or a film, there are many games that feature multiplayer modes, encouraging players to get together in a social setting. We believe that it is important for parents to talk to their children about the video games they are playing. By getting a better understanding of the games your children play, you can decide if your children’s playing habits are cause for concern.
