Vishal Gondal- Founder & CEO- GoQii says playing online games is good for children!
The problem is not games or internet. Problem is addiction to internet. When children begin spending too much time online, do not participate in group sports on ground, dont meet friends or neglect their sleep, thats when the problem arises.
Games in themselves are not harmful. Games teach team play, strategy & collaboration. However, children need hand holding in this process like they need to be taught what kind information they should share and avoid sharing with strangers.
Parents need to be inclusive in activity of their children. They need to spend time together knowing the games kids play, their internet friends etc. This builds a relationship of trust between parents and children.
