Concerns for Parents
- Some games may be extremely violent or inappropriate for certain age groups
- Your child can access previews of movies and games you find inappropriate.
- Online Games Addiction is real and could cause problems for your child.
- If your child is adding friends they don't know, they could be contacting online predators or cyberstalkers. Oversharing information increases these risks.
