HEALTHY GAMING FOR ALL AGES

For a parent of a gamer, it’s important to support and guide their child towards a healthy relationship with gaming.  As parents, we care about supporting our child’s choices in all aspects of their life. When it comes to teens gaming, it’s hard to know which of the positive factors we should be supporting. Most parents are only familiar with how to support their teens in traditional sports.  The good news is, gaming and traditional sports are very similar. The similarities between traditional sports and esports (gaming) are staggering. In fact, the only difference between them is that one is physical and the other is virtual.
