Research 9: Aggressive Games Make People Violent vs Less Violent

For the ninth source that I use for my research project, it’s more of a reliable source.  Coming from CNNhealth.com, author Anne Harding that wrote “Violent Video Games Linked to Child Aggression”, stating her thoughts on this big dispute.  Rather than being one sided Harding opposes the one of life’s biggest asked question, “what came first the chicken or the egg?”  The author tries to dig deeper into the situation to try to find answers out of her sources.  At the beginning of the article that I found interesting was, “About 90 percent of U.S. kids aged 8 to 16 play video games, and they spend about 13 hours a week doing so (more if you’re a boy).”  But it brings back to the question of the chicken and the egg, “do children become more aggressive after playing video games or are aggressive kids more attracted to violent videos?”  Honestly both sides go back and forth and put forth great statements.  With these kind of statements going back and forth there are also cold hard facts from this site as well that only makes it harder for a reader to choose on which side he or she will take.  One source states that parents should move the entertainment system that holds either video games, computers, televisions, and so on into the public spaces within the homes.  This way parents can keep an eye on what the children do on these entertainment systems.  But other sources do state that the parents are to blame for letting their children play such vile games.  The disput goes back and forth and seems like it’ll never end.
