    It seems to me that activities play a very influential role in the growth and development of a child but, there is a conflict among some people on whether outdoor activities are more beneficial for children’s development than computer games. Personally, I think that outdoor activities are more beneficial.

    It is obvious that outdoor games bring out a companionship which is very necessary for a healthy society .children playing outdoor games get to learn a lot of things, for instance, they hurt themselves, fight, laugh, cry, get defeated, and then evolve from such experiences. , In my experience, acquaintances are made by the experience of outdoor activities, children hang out with each other share each other’s experiences, and learn lessons that can help them in their problems. Hence, I believe outdoor activities are very essential for children.

    On the other hand, if I am to see the present era of the covid pandemic then it is obvious that outdoor activities are not possible, in that case, computer games might be of some use but it also has their perks, prolonged use of computer can have bad effects on eyes it can also cause carpel turner and can also make the child have their world revolving around four walls with just the computer system and this can lead the child to have a problem socializing with people around in the future.

    Overall, I would like to say that it is very important for children to have friends and be able to socialize with people who can enhance their knowledge on becoming a better person. So on the whole, outdoor activities are more beneficial for children.

      Feedback: Need to work on thought process as the there is no relevant information found, no example, sentence formation is also not up to the mark that caused grammatical error “children playing outdoor games get to learn a
      lot of things” children playing outdoor games get to learn a
      lot of things, & also use more complex sentences instead limited structures.
      Band: 1.5/6

    It is often argued that children should spend more time on outdoor activities than on computer games. Not only do I completely agree with this idea, but I also believe that computer games are quite detrimental to a child’s development.

    Outdoor activities are beneficial to children in many ways. Human beings are meant to be a part of nature, and constantly being trapped in unnatural environments limits children’s ability to develop physically, mentally, and emotionally. For example, humans are not designed to sit in a chair for long periods of time, be it in a classroom or in an office, as it has detrimental effects on their bodies. Spending time outdoors helps to remedy this problem by allowing people to move freely by this helps in strengthen overall well-being. Furthermore, few studies have proven that children who spend more time outdoors and in nature are far less stressed and more mentally and emotionally stable than those who spend less time outdoors and more time watching television or playing computer games.

    On the other hand, children can improve their interpersonal skills by joining in outdoor activities. This is to say, instead of playing videogames in front of screens, children have more chances to have face-to-face interactions with their peers when they spend time outdoors. Playing outdoors develops many skills like empathy, teamwork, social skills, and many more which helps in preparing for future workplace environment. For instance, a psychological research shows that children who were exposed to outdoor activities have developed excellent social skills. Therefore, it is important for children to spend enough time engaging with peers at outdoor activities.

    To conclude, outdoor activities have resulted to be more beneficial to children than computer activities. Therefore, children should be encouraged to attend more outdoor activities with friends as it improves children’s physical fitness, but also cultivate their social skills. I highly recommend children to spend time with friends in outdoor activities rather than using computers.

    In modern days, with the advent of computers, activities for children is mainly considered as gaming consoles, watching television and using other sorts of entertainment devices and a lot of other toddlers are stuck with there parent’s mobile phones and the parents are also condoning it as they are busy with there busy schedule. But I believe there should be a limit on these kind of entertainment resources and parent should encourage there children to play outside and teach them how to socialize with other kids.

    Firstly, this will help them to grow not only at physical aspects but also there mental abilities will get stronger. Children who do not have physical activities are extremely susceptible to obesity and playing a lot of computer games make them ferocious.

    Furthermore, going outdoor everyday will provide them conducive circumstances which will gradually increase there socializing habits to improve the coordination which is a key to grow confidence and the performance in the school , college and likewise it will help them to build team spirit. Another important skill they will get is better decision making which will reduce there impulsive behavior.

    To conclude, my opinion is to limit children’s indoor activities and should be motivated to participate in as much as outdoor activities so that they can turn down there complacent behavior and boost there character to become a better person in life.

    A lot of people think that outdoor activities are more useful for children’s development than playing computer games. I also strongly believe that children should be having a lot of outdoor activities rather than spending time in front of computers.

    We are becoming dependent on technology since the advent of computers. Computer has been accessible to every child, no matter at home or internet café. Instead of using it wisely, children have been utilizing it mainly for gaming rather than for studying purpose. During my childhood, computers were available only in computer labs and it was strictly for studies.

    Now children use computers only for gaming. Computer games may be responsible for children’s abysmal performance in school. Since children are more interested in games, they become complacent towards their health and also the ferocity of modern games can negatively impact the moral development of a child. There are a lot of real-life examples which justifies this. I remember reading a news where a child played PUBG game for more than 24 hours without any break and passed away. This child even forgot to have food, water which is so necessary for living. Computer games not only make a child lose attachment to the external world, but also creates a serious health issue.

    Physical and mental development in children between the age of 1 year to 14 year is rapid compared to other age group. Children minds are malleable only for so long. Outdoor activity gives a conducive environment for maintaining good health. It helps in overall development of a child. I believe that only outdoor activities and games will benefit our physical and mental health.

    In the current world, different people have contrast of opinion on children’s development via outdoor activities and computer game. This essay will touch upon most beneficial way that children like to indulge in.

    In the recent times, children are swayed to the advent of computer games and online games that keeps them busy all the time. When it comes to computers games it’s like both sides of a coin, which has both positive and negative side. The positive aspect of them is that there are manifold of mind games and puzzle games that really helps in nurturing their mental ability and thinking level, whereas there are few others that has led to abysmal effect in their performance in both academics and non-academics side and they are also susceptible to serious health issues when they get addicted to it.

    On the other hand, the outdoor activities have lot of benefits that help children in fostering innovative ideas and improvement in mental health. Outdoor physical activity games like tennis , badminton and lot more when practiced everyday will definitely help in bringing conducive environment for maintaining good health and staying fit . It’s the responsibility of the parents to condone their children from getting involved in online gaming and rather encourage them to get indulged in physical activities which will eventually prevent them from getting affected from diseases at the very young age.

    Considering all the above pros and cons, outdoor activities will definitely enthral children’s attention when encouraged by the parents to a larger extent.
