Gaming Advice for Parents

Play Together-Keep games consoles, computers and tablets in a communal room and play games together

Check PEGI ratings-These statutory age ratings help identify appropriate games based on their content

Set Boundaries-Depending on your child's age, you could make these decisions together

Have a Routine-Most families have a routine for mealtimes and bedtimes and the same approach can work for screen time

Regular Breaks-Take a break every 45-60 minutes and restrict play close to bedtime

Set Up Parental Controls-Ensure you have specified what content your child can access with secure passwords and user settings

Check Play History-See what your child plays and for how long by checking their user history

Extend your child's play beyond the screen-Find out which games they like and plan related activities

Know who your child is talking to-Many apps allow conversations with other gamers
