Video games are awesome. Everyone knows that. Even people who don't consider themselves "gamers" are playing on their phones without a second thought. Games have become a permanent part of our society. And for the most part, we've embraced their arrival with open arms.
But... what about kids? Should they be allowed to play video games? There are concerns about addiction, violence, lack of socialization, and misogyny to name a few. And parents don't always know if those fears are valid or not. That's where Dr. Rachel Kowert can help.
In this episode we discuss her new book A Parent's Guide to Video Games as she helps us figure out the truth around video games. Don't worry, the results aren't so bad. Mario will be most pleased indeed.
