Top tips when allowing children to play online games:
Check the Age Rating of the Game - Just like with films, you should check the games age rating before
allowing your child to play.
The organisation ‘PEGI’ set age ratings for games and classify their content according to what is appropriate
for different age groups.
Limit the amount of time your child is spending on games. Some games are online worlds which never end
and it can take hours to complete missions.
It is important to limit the amount of time your child spends online. Be aware of how long they spend gaming
and set rules, just like you would when watching TV.
Ensure they take regular screen breaks, 5 or 10 minutes for every 45-60 minutes.
Things can go wrong when gaming and many games now have an online chat facility.
It is important that your child knows what to do when something does happen, or when someone says
something they don’t like. Make yourself and your child aware of how to block or report people.
