7 games you can allow your kids to play without supervision

You can convince anyone for anything, but you can never convince parents that gaming isn’t as bad as they think.We all remember our childhood days when our parents always preferred us to be glued to books rather than consoles.We all used to think that it’s only our parents, and our friends have the coolest parents who let them play games as much as they want.

That’s not true. This apprehension for gaming is prevalent among parents across the world. It’s like, there is a global WhatsApp group of parents where they only share reports of how dangerous gaming is for their children.

According to a report by Statista, 75% of parents said they are concerned about their children’s safety when they are playing games online.

Moreover, in a new report by the University of Michigan’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll, 86% of parents “agreed” or “strongly agreed” their teens spend too much time playing games.

The opinion of our parents is based on the prevalent perception about games that they lead to violent tendencies in children.

Games are also believed to have a detrimental impact on the mental and physical health of children. In the same report cited above, 42% of parents of kids who play games daily think it negatively impacts teens’ mood.

These concerns aren’t baseless. However, the improvement in technology and sophistication in gameplay has led to the diversification of the gaming genres.

Now, there are plenty of games that improve children’s mental abilities and teach them valuable life skills. These games are free of violence and action. Parents do not even need to keep children under supervision when their children play these games.

Some of the games that benefit children in their academic, personal, and social lives are listed below. Introduce your child to these games, and you will never have to keep them under supervision again.
