Behavioral Study Shows Video Games Great for Girls (and Parents)
The study's director, psychology professor Sarah Coyne, told the Wall Street Journal, "It's the face-to-face time, the interaction, that matters." That familial gaming interaction purportedly produces girls who are better behaved, feel tighter family bonds and demonstrate "better mental health" than girls who don't play with their folks. Previous studies correlate perfectly with that dynamic, because research has shown that a majority of kids want their parents to game with them. So, parents, get on that couch and start gaming with your girls!
