Is gaming dominating your child’s life?
Gaming and technology is complex and multi-faceted. Technology is everywhere and is constantly changing. According to the Digital Australia report published in 2020 by the Interactive Games & Entertainment Association (IGEA), around 87% of Australians play video games in some form. This includes a wide range of gaming activities, such as console gaming, PC gaming, mobile gaming, and online gaming.
Gaming can become a problem when it starts to negatively impact various aspects of your life, including their physical health, mental well-being, relationships, work or school performance, and overall functioning.
