Online gaming – what parents need to know

‘New technologies, including gaming, can offer our children many exciting and positive experiences. However schools are increasingly aware of the negative impact that some online gaming is having on the education, achievement, sleep and behaviour of children. To find out more about the online games your children are playing and obtain advice offered to parents/carers based on research, please do listen to the Radio Verulam’s Parent’s Show podcast ‘Computer games and your kids’ http://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-parents-show/id443161154

You may also like to have a look at the Hertfordshire Mind the Gap conversation starter kit. This has been developed to help bridge the gap and give suggestions to help start conversations between parents/carers and their children about staying safe in the online world. This also contains some helpful advice for parents about using technologies in the home.
