  •  Don't forget the tabletop games.. D&D (11+ / 0-)

    My, my but what they didn't do to the fragile teenage psyche wasn't to be believed. LOL  Suicides, murders, insanity were all ascribed to Dungeons and Dragons.  

    I indoctrinated my mildly learning-handicapped grandson into gaming as soon as I could scrape up enuf to build him a computer.  He took to it like a duck to water and I think it did him a great deal of good over the years.  His coordination, focus, and self-confidence all improved noticeably. A big thing was that he learned that "losing" in a game was a given, and didn't really hurt! I did select the games while he was young, but based on his preferences.  The biggest hit? Sid Meier's Civilization.. he still likes it after 20 years.  So sad how gaming ruined his life!  LOL
