parenting with video games

Top video games posts for parents from 2015

The amount of time kids spend playing video games, the types of video games our kids play and the fear of kids becoming gamer zombies with no social skills or relation to the real world, is often a challenge for parents today. But research, perspective and experience tells us that many times these fears are unfounded, or at the very least can be managed with the right information, helpful strategies and some boundaries to keep it under control.

Over this past year I have written many posts on some of these ideas to help us understand and better equip ourselves with the right information in order to ensure our kids get all the enjoyment and learning from video games, whilst at the same time balancing their playing with other pursuits and keeping them safe.

So in case you missed any, here are some of my posts from 2015 on helping parents understand the world of video gaming.
