If your child can come in contact with people online, you may be able to limit this through the adult safety settings. This can help censor sounds and images they shouldn't see. This should also allow you to make sure they can't talk to anyone unless they are friends. You can even limit what games they play by what is included in the game. Warning labels are the most helpful things on the game, which let you know prior to buying the video game what you are going to buy.

We must admit that technology has played a very big part in our lives today. It made us live comfortably and make something be done fast. It also played as an entertainer to us. We are real people who establish virtual life.

To stop play video games, you have to admit you are addicted. If you don't you'll be stuck in that mindset. You cannot stop playing at first, just lower the amount of time you play each time. Always finish your priorities before you play, so you don't cram and know that your relieved and have nothing else to do. You also have to go outside and do something that requires energy.

A schedule would also be a good idea because the child will know that there is a certain period of time in which they can play. Organizing their time will help them know that they have to finish what they have to do in that period of time. Especially if the child takes part in extracurricular activities, they know there is a time crunch for things like video games. If a child wants to play, make sure they have finished everything before they do. The problem is that kids cannot evenly spread out their time with their lives.

Going on vacations is also a good way to get away from video games. Going hiking or camping and getting away from technology is good. Go outside and play outdoor sports and games. It is a good way to get away from the technological side of life. "Family time" is a great way to spend time and be able to see what is important.

Video game addiction is similar to other addictions as well. Video games are a psychological problem. Find out if there are any depression or anxiety problems at home or elsewhere. A child could be using video games as a problem to get away from these things. "Usually addiction is a symptom of a larger problem". Once the problems are found, the solution can be found also.

Sit down with your kid and add up how much time they play per day. Tell them the reality about video games and how none of it is really helpful in life. Anything virtually doesn't help you realistically. They should also know that there aren't any achievements for being addicted. They could be using this time for something useful.

Get your child some outdoor equipment. Play with them outside or get them things to do outside. By not spending money on video games, it should be easier to afford the things for kids to do outside. Get them involved in extracurricular activities like football or baseball. Even a diet change is good. Feed them foods that give them energy so they want to jump and move around.

Childcare experts caution parents over kids’ tablet time | Ways to Prevent video games and addiction Aspect 3 | Scoop.it

As our children become increasingly capable with new technology, a number of experts have begun to weigh in on the potential harm overexposure to devices like tablets can have on young children.

 

With the majority of ankle-biters out there able to deftly maneuver her or his way around an iPad better than most of us older folks (sad, but true), it’s simply remarkable how increasingly comfortable kids nowadays are with the rapidly expanding amount of technology out there. And while this is certainly a good thing, some experts are beginning to weigh in on the potential harm overexposure to devices like tablets can have on children.

 

Recently TabTimes reported on a number of child welfare experts. Speaking at a panel in New York entitled “Baby Brains and Video Games,” parents were warned of the negative effects overexposure to tablets may cause children, and urged to monitor and control how often their children use these increasingly ubiquitous devices ...

As of now, it seems that little kids know there way around an iPad than the adults of our generation. Kids are understanding more and more technology as it comes out. However, the overuse of these products can be harmful. Parents should not use these things as "digital babysitters". Even though it is easy, it is harmful.
