Kids love gaming. From gaming consoles to make believe games to hide and seek to internet games, kids love to play. And depending on the game, there are many benefits to letting your child indulge… within reason of course. Games teach kids motor skills, social skills, and problem solving skills. And some games even promote exercise. Games also teach kids about technology. And you know, any kid of mine is going to be a a tech pro. 🙂 One of my six year old sons is already a pro at all of the games that we have. He knows how to turn on the gaming systems, switch the TV over to Netflix, and more. My 9 year olds ask him what to do when the time comes. They call him the electronics expert. LOL!
Face it, games are here to stay. And instead of fighting your children on it, set some rules, find some educational games that make you feel good about them playing. I love this quote:
