Children especially should be watched carefully to see what games they are playing and where too. Bullies, adult perverts, sore losers and other personalities can harm the children who are on the websites geared for fun and games. Computers allow people of all characters to hide behind the screen. Unless parents watch what their child is playing on the game sites,trouble could enter that fun time. Many psychologists recommend not putting a television or computer in the bedroom to avoid secret or private use without proper supervision from adults or loving people interested in the quality of living for the person.
Screen Time For Health
If you are not aware, children according the the Association for Pediatrics recommends no screen time for children from birth to age two. After the age of two only one to two hours per day is advised. Check out the site to know the age regarding your child. This data is available to the general public to learn and then it is advised to make your own parental judgments for the health of your child.Devise your own rules for your child to keep the screen time down to an acceptable level. Consider putting books and other choices in the same places the children play their games online so they can make better choices.
Ratings of Internet Games
Just like the movies an organization is rating video games for people. ESRB is a software that rates Internet games as follows: EC is for early childhood, E is rated for everyone, E10+ is the rating for everyone 10 years and older,T is rated for 13 years and older, M states the video or game is for mature audiences of 17 years and older. The rating system continues with AO meaning for adults only saying the contents includes graphic sexual content or intense violence or violent scenes along with nudity. The recommendation is for 18 years and older people using this rating alert.RP is that the rating has not yet been established and has not been assigned a title yet.
Game Rules For Inventors
Marketing a game requires getting the game rated, getting a certificate, following the enforcement rules to protect game playing people. Research your manufacturer to see the rating, check on the certification and see that that game follows all laws.Game developers and publishers must apply to ESRB by mail describing the company,the proposed product to be rated, past products, general information about the website, full contact information and whom should be contacted for further questions. This should be sent to:
Entertainment Software Rating Board c/o Publisher Account Requests 317 Madison Avenue, 22nd Fl. New York, NY 10017
Customers have a right to contact any producer of the game to have their questions answered.
Physical Danger of Gaming
Without proper guiding children can become addicted to the game and grossly limit their physical activity. Health problems are not limited to eye strain but include circulation and social experiences as well. The ostracized child because of weight issues tend to become gamers and further segregate themselves from others and the social welfare of themselves. The children who play games often eat improperly due to the attachment to the screen on the TV or the computer.Snacks are rarely the healthy ones selected by game playing children and teens which affect the health and wellness and appetite for good nutrition too.
