Video games lead to more efficient brain activity, as while playing, your kids will become more proficient at the game. They stimulate the brain to think more than just using reflexive actions, and thus enhance IQ. One of the disadvantages of video games is that children cannot spend a lot of time in front of the screens. So make sure that you monitor this activity. 

Playtime Dos and Don'ts

Always give your children choices. They learn best when they have open-ended choices about what they are playing. Do not redirect them as you may be bored watching your kids playing the same game for longer time. Give them something new to interrupt their fantasy and try something new. Allow your kids to make mistakes and get frustrated a little – it is fine. Do not intervene and allow them to think of a different approach on their own. Praise for sure, but do not overpraise.

Give a specific compliment and always allow the chance to them to improve more. Ask questions like what they think about their moves in the games, why they did it, what they thought of while taking such move – it makes it more interesting. Keep the playtime on, and observe how it boosts your kids’ IQ.
