Work with GameAware in 2024 In a world where gaming addiction is on the rise, and at the same time, we are seeing the benefits of gaming and grassroots esports,  you can see how confusing and contradictory the different narratives can be around gaming.  Despite becoming more mainstream in the last decade or so, it maintains plenty of misunderstanding from parents and professionals if they don’t play, and a lack of understanding from many of the young people who do. This gap in knowledge creates a rift between parents and their kids which becomes problematic, and contributes to a l ..read more

If video games are considered a form of entertainment for children that they will grow out of, the idea that parents need to find games they like playing is absurd. However, if video games are a new form of media, like books, films and music, understanding it first hand is a powerful way for parents and guardians to know how to guide their children. This isn’t about pointing the finger at mums and dads, or giving them yet another thing to do or feel guilty about. It’s advice that stems from the importance of being present in the world our children are growing up in. Even dipping your toe in t ..read more

China instructed gaming companies to prevent children playing outside these times, and the government will be tracking how well game companies are enforcing this. Buckle Up!

Back in November 2019, China implemented a rule of a maximum of 90min per day until 10pm during weekdays, and weekends would allow minors to ..read more

Published on: 9 September 2020 2020 has been a treat of a year, hasn't it? With COVID-19’s presence pushing the need for social distancing and restricting our movements, we have been struggling to meet our need for social connection organically. Edward Deci and Richard Ryan, the minds behind “Self Determination Theory”, talk about this connection and go deeper. They call it relatedness, which isn’t just connecting with family and friends but drives us to become part of a community and matter to other people. Our connection to our communities has definitely been impacted, and I don’t know abo ..read more
