Link between video game play, social competence in children examined

A Norwegian study in the journal Child Development showed that youths with greater social competence at ages 8 and 10 spent less time playing video games at age 12. Researchers also found that girls, but not boys, who spent more time on video games at age 10 had reduced social competence at age 12.
