This study might not be something that parents will be happy about. When we were younger, some of our parents found video games useless and had no educational value in our growth. However, according to researchers from an institute in Sweden, children who spend one hour everyday playing video games can boost their intelligence. 

The study was done on more than 5000 children in the US aged between 10 to 12 years old. And they monitored the children’s video game duration and their examination scores. Those who are given time to play video games for one hour scored better in their tests. 

But researchers also reminded that the average hours for children to play video games should be only about one hour, nothing more. So, parents, take note, one hour of video game per day is fair. Unless you are cultivating a young esports champion, then that’s a different story.
