(SURVEY) Parenting Paradigm: The Video Game Conflict

Gaming may be America’s new favorite pastime. According to a recent survey from Satellite Internet, one-third of Americans are gaming more in quarantine.  Four hours a day is the current daily gaming average.

  • 35% believe video games cause violence
  • 81% of respondents think video games are addictive
  • 80% don’t think kids should be able to spend money inside games
  • 74% don’t think kid’s gaming apps should include in-app purchases
