Common Sense Media: 6 Fresh Ways to Clean Up Your Kids' Media

Video Games

Old think: Playing video games will make your kid violent or get him addicted to gaming.

New think: Violent and addictive video games are out there -- but there are plenty of excellent titles that are active, social, and provide learning potential for strategy, cooperation, and even academics.

Our take: Explore your options. Consider investing in a game platform like a Wii, Move, or Kinect (whose games tend not to be violent and addicting) so you can stay involved in your kids' gaming pursuits and enjoy them together as a family. —Common Sense Media (Photo: iStock)
