From time to time, we can read articles about parents who ban ther kids from playing games. Or, restrict the time that they can play. Do you Think this is good, or bad?

I was watching the news awhile back and they had a discussion about how much screen time (tv, games, etc) kids and adults should have. One of the dads said that his family decided that one day a week they have a 'no screen' day. I think that's important not only for the kids but also for the adults. I'm sure kids and parents can feel a bit neglected when everyone is always on their devices these days. I also try to reserve at least one day or evening a week without my devices, but its surprisingly difficult. Sad

#1. I Think it's important too. To be away from the screen every now and then. Myself, I work with customer support. So there is 8 hours of screentime every day at work. And then, when I come home I walk straight to my PC and sit there for.. Well some more hours. I really can't remember the last time I had one full day off from the screen. It is indeed difficult Sleeping

I don't think parents should ban kids playing video games completely. But they can implement rules and time regulations so the kids doesn't spend to much time gaming. I think parents should be aware of and strict about the age limit on each game. I would not let kids playing some shooting games that are for teenagers. In our family we only/mostly play sport games (e.g. FIFA and NHL). Laughing

An long as it isn't harmful to the children, there is no need for restrictions.

Considering, we are all used to have way to much freedom. Do you Think that the kids would get upset with rules, regarding their playtime?

I am lucky enough to have no problems with rules. We have had so much fun talking about games and playing, helping each other, talking about what we like and so on. My own children are old enough, so I write about my grandchildren.
