Online gaming has seen a massive increase in popularity with children over the COVID-19 pandemic, as a result of more time spent at home and restrictions on physical social contact. In 2020, around seven in ten children aged 5-15 played games online (source: Ofcom). Chances are, your child could be one of them.

Most experts agree that playing online games can have many beneficial effects to our children, developing key cognitive, motor and life skills and encouraging them to keep abreast of the latest technology. However, as with many things children do online, there can also be negatives.

Please join one of our free Gaming4Good webinars where you can hear from a panel of experts in family gaming, psychology, gaming risk and finance, about how to approach your child’s gaming to help them get the most out of it … and avoid the pitfalls. We’ll also be welcoming your questions in a Q&A session at the end of the panel discussion.

There are three one-hour webinars, each tailored for parents of children of different age groups.

Thursday June 17, 10am – 11am BST (GMT+1): parents and guardians with children 2–12 yrs
