Study: Children who play video games have better social skills

Posted: Updated:

A new study found that playing video games may be good for children.

Oxford University researchers surveyed 5000 British children between the ages of 10-year-old and 15-years-old
         
They found kids who played video games for an hour or less a day had better social skills and were more likely to be happy in their lives.
         
But kids who played more than three hours a day appeared to be the least well-adjusted of the group.
