Video Gaming Restrictions in China for Kids

The government has degreed that young people can only spend three hours per week, in a move it says is necessary to stop gaming addiction. The state-controlled publication Xinhua has reported that video game companies can only provide service to minors on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and public holidays between 8:00pm and 9:00pm and also all online gaming must use a real-name verification system, for both citizens of China and visitors to the country. The restrictions also apply to games such as programming, sports games, and chess, but teachers and parents reflect that “moderate contact” with video games is acceptable. Is this a great move to help in child’smental development ?
