Gaming Insights

This podcast provides some good insights on the effect of gaming on the teenage brain. It also gives parents some information to share with their teen to start the conversation on how they may feel after playing and why, and useful tips on how the teenager can empower themselves to regulate their own screen time. As a parent of a 16 yr old girl in my experience communication is key and guidance to help her manage herself. Great pod cast look forward to the next episodes!
