Gaming

Gaming risks tend to arise from a large number of people playing, the minimal restrictions involved, and the fact that users are not face-to-face. Due to the lack of transparency, your child cannot be sure who they are playing against or chatting to, and what these people’s motives are. Children are also at risk of playing games with an inappropriate age rating, or spending hours at a time online to the exclusion of exercise, socialising, and school work.
