Parents sometimes step out of their comfort zones and stretch the limits when it comes to spending time with their kids.
Spending time with the kids as a dad or mom is very important. Why is spending time with our kids beneficial to all parties involved? Would you play video games to spend time with your kids?
Time Well Spent
Generally speaking I could never endorse M rated video games for any kid at any time, at least not while they are living in my house under my authority. But there are countless video games that I actually would allow my kids to play, with the proper time limits of course.
Some experts say that 2 hours a day for playing video games is the absolute max, I would endorse closer to 2 hours a week. There are just so many things that are more beneficial and fun for our kids to engage in. But I would stretch those limits a bit if the time was actually spent playing with me, the dad. Not because I am a video game dad, but because spending time with my kids doing what they actually like to do is that important.
