Video games can be a fun way for children to escape the heat, but the constant
assault on the hands _ particularly the thumbs _ can contribute to problems
"Not only is it easy for kids to get hooked on interactive video games,
but the repetitive motion can cause injuries and can lead to problems such
as tendinitis," said Dr.Adrienne Tilbor, a physical medicine and rehabilitation
specialist at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston.
Kids can become so engrossed that they do not take breaks or engage

Children also should be encouraged to pursue a variety of pasttimes that
contribute to overall good health and development.
