Should Video Games be used to 'babysit' our young?
Babysitter? PFFT... Better take the kids to the COD: Children's Online Daycare
Oh goodness me. Now THAT'S innovation!
That is how my brothers ex girlfriend babysits their kids, either sitting them in front of the t.v or having them play some kind of tablet game. They are only 2 and 3; now whenever the kids come over to my house they think they can just play games and watch television all day...I don't think so.
Games should never be used for babysitting but I do approve it as a reward for good behaviour and/or good grades.
Parents these days... pff. When I was young, my parents would never let me watch as much tv or play games as I want. It's counter productive and very prejudicial. Kid must have limits and this limits must be imposed by the parents, not by something else.
Well said my friend.
Wouldn't use a game to babysit. Would use a game like LittleBigPlanet to engage said kid.
