  • Common Fears Misconceptions Associated with
    Playing Video Games
  • Aggression Although aggression among children
    addicted to video games isnt ruled out, studies
    have proved that this is found among those who
    are left un-monitored or play excessively
  • Social Isolation Children who play continuously
    may withdraw from society and remain glued to
    their games. This again can be controlled by
    regulating the time spent on video games or by
    drawing their attention to fun and interactive
    educational online games
  • Confusion Between Reality and Fantasy Games may
    encourage children to live in a make-believe
    world. But the right games can help parents teach
    children about real world problems like smoking,
    alcoholism, drug addiction, social media
    addiction, etc.

    engaged whilst teaching can addressed through
    video games

    student participation
  • Collaborative Effort Children whove mastered a
    game can encourage and teach peers
  • Instigate learning Games can help make children

    curriculum. This can be especially helpful when
    teaching history, mythology, ancient literature,
    etc.

    Online Games

    for your children

    children social skills and educate them about the
    dangers of negative peer influence through the
    childs game playing

    characters in the games to win by overcoming
    inhibiting traits such as laziness, peer
    pressure, etc.
