On the other hand, playing computer games can be beneficial to children’s development and to the country.
China Daily reported that all the high-scoring students in the college entrance exams were also gamers,
and China’s future success when competing in global markets will depend heavily on young adults who are skilled in using information technology.
It is not possible to say that the Internet is simply “good” or “bad”,
but it is a powerful tool that needs to be use with care.
Liu Huanrong, a volunteer who has helped many teenagers addicted to online gaming,
believes that the most important thing for today’s youth is to have balance in their lives.
Miss Liu says that certain games take too long to play and are unsuitable for teenagers.
She also believes that some children find the pressure of studying too much and turn to games as a way to escape.
Young people should choose their games wisely and make time for sleep,
sport, hobbies, friends and family as well as for study.
If they do so, their lives will be happy, healthy and balanced.
