That's a really insightful perspective! So using videogames/TV to solve "boredom" would deal with the lack of action, but encourage the lack of thought, making kids less creative? For a non-bored person, they're usually doing something they enjoy, so the need for both thought and action is satisfied. From this point of view, it appears that videogames/TV would satisfy action at the expense of thought. And procrastination would be satisfying thought without action! XD
