With the rapid advancement of technology and the big boom of the gaming industry in 2020, there is a good chance your household has at least one gamer living in it. Gaming is one of the fastest evolving social forums. Even if someone games privately instead of “online” (meaning they can play simultaneously with other players from all over the world), they may be visiting other social platforms to discuss tips and tricks (such as Twitch or YouTube). As a parent or carer, all of this can make you feel like you’re on the outside looking in. You might struggle to get them to adhere to family dinner time. You might want them to look away from their screens for more than ten seconds. You might just want to know exactly what it is they’re doing.

Our gaming safety experts have curated this list of our most popular gaming resources. While we’ve covered a range of topics and games, we are always looking for recommendations. If there is something you would like to see covered but can’t find it here, let us know by contacting us through our website or social media channels.
