Parents and Psychologists Talk Screentime and More

Speaking of Pixelkin, this is a great write up of the gaming and parenting panel I was part of at PAX East this past weekend.

When it comes to finding the right games, Steve Lubitz, co-host of gaming podcast Isometric, said, “I’ve started bucketing my games into games I can play with the kids, games I can play when the kids are around, and daddy games,” a pile that got smaller and smaller as his kids got older (and stopped taking naps). He found a solution to the timing problem though: he gets up early in the morning to work out, and plays games on his exercise bike. The statement drew laughs from a crowd of parents used to finding non-traditional ways of gaming with kids in their lives.
