By Jean O'Boyle Your argument about success vs. participation is weak. I'd make wine out of those sour grapes by concentrating on skill & enjoyment = success.

Video games may be more sedentary on the surface, but they can be good for boosting aptitude, persistence & other brain skills.

By William Dykeman i would like to reward children for getting off the couch , reward them for going out and grabbing a bat, or a soccer ball and getting some exercise.. let them target shoot 22lr i dont care i object to fatty kids sitting on their ass not getting fresh air and exercise this has nothing to to with success, at least if they were playing ping pong theyd get a bit of exercise.. computer games i fear rot kids brains at least chess takes strategy ad thought
