    Judith Hall, distinguished professor at Northeastern University and an expert in nonverbal communication, told me that save for a few isolated young people who play video games all day, most children have enough interpersonal contact to learn to read emotions: “Especially when the interaction is social — emails, texting, reading between the lines of Facebook posts — the demands on social intelligence are high.”

    Watching television and playing video games can also have cognitive benefits, she said. “We should not leap to facile conclusions,” Dr. Hall said. “It may not be all doom and gloom.”
