Speech Abstract

 This thought provoking speech challenges parents to consider the impact of their children’s health and social skills through the excessive use of computer games, DVDs and TV.  It poses the question; does playing a computer game constitute “playing”, along with its concomitant benefits, as we have traditionally understood it. The speech optionally includes quotations by Oscar Wilde, Woody Allen and "7 Up" (the legendary British Documentary following the development of a group of children). (As with all Speechforyou.com persuasive speeches the arguments and ideas put forward are not necessarily those of the company and are only made available for debating and academic public speaking purposes.)
