What They Play writes:
In this first installment of a regular feature on What They Play, we talk to real moms about the way they tackle video games and media usage with their kids. Each week we'll be talking about different games, different topics, and inviting more moms to join in the conversation. If you'd like to be a part of this in a future week, please send us an email at [email protected]
This week, six moms join us with kids aged from two to late teens. We talk to them about the games they're playing, the way they enforce gaming-related rules, any concerns about gaming addiction, and whether games are allowed in the bedroom.
