Do you worry about your children’s gaming time, habits and interactions? The internet and gaming is sometimes a scary place, especially when it comes to our children. The team at ESRB Ratings has a parenting-focused, gaming-positive book to help parents.
Taming Gaming by Andy Robertson offers expertise from a seasoned gaming journalist and dad on how to guide your child to healthy gaming habits. After 10 years of playing video games with his kids, Robertson says that, while kids don’t need their parents’ help playing games, they do need their parents to “model a healthy relationship with” games. This includes how to stop playing when necessary, prioritizing face-to-face communications, and integrating games in a balanced way into the rest of their life.
“Discover what really happens when a child plays a video game. Face fears about screen time and start steering your child’s gaming from violence, expense and addiction towards fulfilling, connecting, affordable experiences.
You don’t need to be a gamer, or want to play games but to guide your child to gaming health you need to understand the actual benefits and dangers of gaming rather than the worrying headlines and reactionary news.”
