Thanks, noted, and I can understand how it can improve certain aspects, but also must be used judiciously with younger people.

True, hand-eye coordination is improved by games such as FPS. True, violent games can be a stress relief. But, this also varies by personality of the player. Each kid is different. You don't want a kid that tries to mimic everything they see for instance playing street fighter...

I suspect that this is like many stimulating activities and substances, in that it's good for some people, neutral for many and bad for a few others. I think the key is awareness of oneself and others, and above all, the teaching of respect. What I mean is, people need to be taught from an early age that, if one of their peers claims not to enjoy something or says that it upsets or damages them in some way, that is a difference and a boundary to be respected. Peer pressure is evident in more activities than drink, drugs, sex and clothes. Watching horror films are another good example of an activity where this applies. Anyway, it's very interestingm, thank you Sophie.

Oh and Gfhjhg D with the strangely low number of friends... does ANYONE buy your shit? Really?? Sod off.
