Gaming Safely

Millions of gaming systems are sold every year, especially around the holidays.  With that in mind, I wanted to take this time to talk to you a little bit about gaming safely. 

All types of predators use many avenues to try to achieve their goal.  Please keep a few of these suggestions in mind when gaming or allowing your children to game.

  • Actively supervise your children’s game time and make sure they have strong passwords and you know what those passwords are.
  • Make sure that you and your children know how to report and/or block cyberbullies.  The Terms of Service usually has instructions on how to file a complaint on another player.
  • Never reveal any personal information and use an avatar instead of a real photo of yourself.
  • Many gaming systems have parental control features, please use them.
  • Enact a “No Downloads without Permission” Policy.
