compromising ░░░░░░░░ work Leading to arguments ░░░░░░░░ parents There is chaos ░░░░░░░░ the household Any parent ░░░░░░░░ kid has fortnite has ░░░░░░░░ argued with that child ░░░░░░░░ me the biggest downside ░░░░░░░░ game is recommended for ░░░░░░░░ over the age of ░░░░░░░░ and there are countless ░░░░░░░░ under the age of ░░░░░░░░ as young as 6 ░░░░░░░░ old playing this game ░░░░░░░░ It seems to supplant ░░░░░░░░ contact If you are ░░░░░░░░ hours a day playing ░░░░░░░░ you are basically locked ░░░░░░░░ a fantasy world without ░░░░░░░░ living people in it ░░░░░░░░ That s right The ░░░░░░░░ argument people might make ░░░░░░░░ a headset on and ░░░░░░░░ with your friends which ░░░░░░░░ interaction That s not ░░░░░░░░ interaction There is nothing ░░░░░░░░ than actual face to ░░░░░░░░ interaction and picking up ░░░░░░░░ the nonverbal nuances and ░░░░░░░░ of the people in ░░░░░░░░ of us Tucker A ░░░░░░░░ hose leader tell us ░░░░░░░░ about the children children ░░░░░░░░ our future

░░░░░░░░ to your health When ░░░░░░░░ see kids I see ░░░░░░░░ on a daily basis ░░░░░░░░ kid that would be ░░░░░░░░ the nicest kid the ░░░░░░░░ s pet have parents ░░░░░░░░ me up and like ░░░░░░░░ holes

neuroplasticity The brain ░░░░░░░░ engaged in anything highly ░░░░░░░░ for three or more ░░░░░░░░ per day grow neuropathways ░░░░░░░░ adapt to that environment ░░░░░░░░ problem is when it ░░░░░░░░ to the cyber world ░░░░░░░░ can unadapt to the ░░░░░░░░ world That s why ░░░░░░░░ are seeing so many ░░░░░░░░ with kids with poor ░░░░░░░░ skills kids coming out ░░░░░░░░ college and can t ░░░░░░░░ well
