Video games are an inevitable part of childhood these days.
At times, this can be difficult for parents. You might have worries about online gaming and whether it is safe for your child. It can be tempting to lock away the games, turn off the WiFi, hide the power cable or ban gaming altogether. But this only solves the problem in the short term.
It’s important to keep calmly commuicating with your child. Try to be honest and open about gaming. Playing video games together can be a good way to encourage this.
