Should you allow your child to play video games in the school holidays?

With the Easter holidays coming up, many children look forward to having days away from the classroom, but video games shouldn’t be their number one priority. Don’t get us wrong, we absolutely love video games, but at a young age it’s so important to maintain healthy relationships with friends, and going outdoors, playing football and climbing trees is what it’s all about. That’s not to say that there is no time at all for playing video games in the school holidays, afterall they’re enjoyable. That said, several friends can play games together, enjoying memories so a few hours here or there isn’t a problem. But just because you can access games and play your friends online, doesn’t mean you should. Why not have your child spend time with their friends at your home or their friend’s home, so they’re still engaging without being too absorbed in a make believe world.
