Like most hobbies, playing video games can be safe in moderation. However, younger students who have not yet developed the ability to self-regulate their behavior need guidance and support to develop those skills. With so many video games out there, it’s hard for parents to regulate who their kids are talking to online and what they are seeing online.Please join us as we discuss what some experts have to say about the dangers of video gaming and what parents can do to help keep their kids safe.
