It's depend on what you give him/her to play. You can not stop them for playing. Keep eyes on them. It is absolutely ok then.
Yes. this is the way.I think games are not a big problem but you need to do some things like:
- keep track of the time spent by your child online;
- check that the games played are age appropriate;
- learn how online games of various genres can help your child to evolve.
Same here but I also control what he's playing ) don't allow him to play CS:go but League of legends is ok. He treats it like a fairytale. Sometimes Jeremy spends up to 4-5 hours daily trying to improve his skills. I'm glad when he is successful in that because all of his classmates are also crazy about League of Legends. It's sort of competiton between them :grin: I know that he is even using AI post-match analysis to improve his gaming skills (here is the service https://gosu.ai/platform/league-of-legends in case your kid is same passionate about this game :winkIf you controlling the time - yes. I allow my son play videogames... 2 hours per day.
I do not give my son such games.
Actually agree with you. Nowadays children pay little attention to outdoor activities unfortunately! (((I think that it is best to engage your kids in outdoor activities.. though in today's world lots of people are earning from E.sports!! the industry is growing fast..striking a balance can be helpful.
I wouldn't be that categorical )) TV is a waste of time that goes without a doubt! but games sometimes may be really useful for increasing brain activity!Games are a waste of time. It is clear that it is unrealistic to protect children from gadgets and modern IT technologies. But it can be done more cognitively. You can take the set-top box for IPTV/OTT. So you get quality TV and a great variety of TV programs. For the child you will receive cognitive transmissions. There are channels about health, animals, science and technology, educational programs. It's much cooler and better than banal games
Right you are, mon ami! :grin:I don't have children but if I did, I would agree with this post. Not just children - all of u s spend way too much time staring at a small screen for hours on end. We have forgotten how to talk with each other! I am so glad I was not brought up on computers. When I was a child, I spent as much time as I could being outside, enjoying nature. The world seemed magical to me, birds, flowers, trees, animals and sunshine. I was lucky to grow up out in the country part of Maryland. Beautiful place back then. Now? Not so.:crying
