Parent Perspectives on Summer Gaming
Educating Yourself Is the Best Thing You Can Do
Connect With Your Kids
Video games are much like any other hobby or interest your kids have. By taking the time to learn about and talk about the games your kids play, you’ll be showing them that you care about the things they enjoy. At Pixelkin, we believe that games have the power to strengthen relationships by bringing kids and parents together.
Sift Through All the Confusing Information
Video games are often a polarizing subject for parents. Parents have screentime concerns, and major media outlets offer conflicting information. All this makes it hard to find information that’s relevant to your family and your kids. At Pixelkin, we’re focused on giving you comprehensive, objective information that breaks through all the clutter.
Make the Best Decisions
By educating yourself, you’ll prepare yourself to decide which games your kids can play. Having the knowledge to back up your choices gives you the opportunity to describe your reasoning to your kids in a language they understand. At Pixelkin, we give you the tools to become fluent in the language of games.
Have questions about a specific game? Have a concern about video gaming that you need an answer to? Pixelkin’s editors can provide you with personal advice.
