Newsbrief: A new study from scientists at Oxford University has found that playing video games for short bursts of time can have a positive impact on child development. As reported by the BBC, the study found that children who played games for less than an hour a day were more satisfied with life, got on well with people, and had fewer emotion problems. That being said, the study also found the reverse for children who played more than three hours of video games a day, stating that these kids were "the least well adjusted" compared to those who only played an hour, or those who didn't play at all. You can read the full results at the BBC.
