Digital Playgrounds

Learning & Connecting Through Games

When we think about video games, we tend to believe that they’re only for playing. What if we told you that games can be about connection and learning too? In Digital Playgrounds’ second book, Learning & Connecting Through Games, we (your fairy gamemothers) will explore the role of games as tools in our 21st century lives, and how they can connect us, teach us a variety of new skills and new information and foster positive mental health. We will also address common questions parents have about video games, including gaming’s relationship to violence and addiction and concerns about loot boxes. We offer advice for navigating challenging conversations that crop up around video games, as well. You’re not alone! Join us on this adventure in connecting with our children through video games.
