Video Games In Spanish
So, I’m a gamer and mom, and I’m sure it’s no surprise that I let my kids play video games. Contrary to what many parents think, my kids actually play fewer games than most of their friends and have too many restrictions on what they are allowed to play. Because I’m familiar with many popular topics, I can better choose the right ones and I just don’t think all games are “toys” and OK for kids … I can say a lot about that, but that’s sometimes posted;) Maybe you wonder if your kids spend too much time playing video games, Personally, I would like my children to choose to gamble on their screen time (1-4 hours per week, no weekday, if you wonder) rather than TV or movies; let me tell you why:
The Top 5 Reasons to Let Your Kids Play Video Games:
1: Literacy and Numeracy Skills – This is especially true for “edutainment” games, but in reality all games require a certain amount of learning, and many are mathematical and psychological challenges. Video Games In Spanish If you want to actively build a set of certain skills, there are games that will help directly with math, or Spanish, whatever you have, but many genres offer a certain level of reading and thinking [quite in addition to television or movies].
2: Cooperation – Kids can play together locally or online (by following online safety precautions, of course!), And there are many good games where they encourage co-operative play. The 10- and 8-year-olds are big fans of the LEGO game series, all designed for two-player collaboration. Children need to work together to solve problems and meet goals, plan strategies and share rewards.
3: Building Self-Confidence – Video games are great tools for building self-confidence, as they provide a quick response to a job well done and allow a child to experience some success that they do not always have at school or in social situations. This is a special bonus for children who are lonely or have learning disabilities. The games provide purpose and clear rewards for achieving them, making kids feel good.
4: Social Skills – This is something you may not have expected, but there are studies that show young people playing video games playing with others more often than not, and that 85% of the time they describe another player’s behavior as “kind and helpful”. Video Games In Spanish There is a lot of socially supportive behavior in the online gaming world and kids have the opportunity to both “meet” people from all over the world (again, you need to take safety precautions through online communication) and “share” online with their real world friends.
5: Fun – Video games are fun, which is why kids love it, and there’s nothing wrong with that! I think the mainstream media has scared many parents into thinking that sports are bad or dangerous, when in fact there are a lot of great kids games out there. Video Games In Spanish There’s nothing wrong with having a good time just because you like it. As long as you choose the right games for the age and strength of your kids, let them enjoy more.
