People always talk about the negative impact gaming has on our children so let’s talk about some of the positives. How could our children benefit from playing online games?
It can inspire their future careers. A lot of gamers have gone on to pursue a career in game design, arts, history and even science since playing games whilst growing up. In some ways, it opens up their eyes to what they could achieve.
Gaming can also allow them to make friends. They may struggle with making friends in person and gaming is their escape. It may help with their social skills and encourage them to make more friends outside of gaming.
Finally, it can help children with their hand-eye coordination. With looking at a screen and pressing buttons, their brain is learning an amazing skill.
This is just three benefits that gaming can have for our children. I am sure there are many more.
