The Covid-19 global pandemic affected a lot to everyone! But the business that boom during this is Gaming Industry. The Quarantine made gaming an essential routine for most childern who have to option to pass their time, and obviously the same children parents are worried for their child development.
According to the survey conducted by IPSOS on behalf of the Blue Cross indicates that children playing more now than before the corona pandemic. As many as 44 per cent of the parents who participated in the survey say that the child has played more, and 55 per cent of those who have taken part are concerned about the development.
The parents are most worried that the child will spend too much time, and that it will become dependent on the game.
8 out of 10 of the parents say that they are unsure of how to relate to their children playing, while 52 percent report that they are not interested in their own play.
At the same time, parents have become less worried that the game will make children unsocial. While 42 percent felt it in 2020, this has dropped to 29 percent in 2021.
Children Might get Tunnel Vision!
Experts believe is that it is easy to get a slightly one-sided focus on the use of time. What often happens when parents are worried, is that the child can get a little “tunnel vision” on the game. Parents should generally be careless about how much time their child spends on playing, and should care more about what they play and who they play with!
In previous year media survey, the figures state that- As many as 96 percent of the boys and 76 percent of the girls then said that they play regularly. In comparison to 2018, 96 per cent and 63 percent of the girls answered in the same survey in 2018. All those asked in the media survey were between 9 and 18 years old.
We conclude that there is an overall increase in the number of children playing video games (some popular online games) in the whole 2020 pandemic!
