Hello everyone! I am a wife of an addicted online gamer and a member of Olganon. I am currently writing a research paper regarding the effects of MMORGPs on adolescent social skill development for a class I am taking. If your child plays a MMORGP (WOW, Star Wars Galaxies, etc.), I would greatly appreciate any input you feel comfortable giving. If your child is between the ages of 15-18 and you would like to participate, please respond to the following questions:
1. How old is your child?
2. What do you consider to be "excessive" game play? How many hours per week?
3. Do you feel your child lacking or deficient in any of the following areas (please rate on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the most deficient):
a. appropriate verbal communication
b. appropriate nonverbal communication
c. self management
d. peer relations
e. decision making skills
This is an "anonymous questionnaire" so no names, screennames, etc. will be used in my paper. If you have any questions please feel free to email me at email@example.com. Thanks in advance for your help!
