If you answered yes to any of these questions, then keep reading. I believe I can help. I can show you how you and your child can transform video games from a problem into a platform for growth.
Video games have evolved from a simple diversion to a compelling, connected and highly competitive platform. Understanding your child’s engagement with video games can do more than reduce your frustration.Managed properly, competitive video gaming can actually prepare your child for their future.
Why Your Child Finds Esports Compelling
Many parents today are confused by their child’s fascination with video games. Children are not afraid of video games because they see the world differently. They see a world of competition, connection, and community. In short, they see the future.
I want to show you how to help your child navigate this exciting, puzzling world. Video games don’t have to be a source of frustration. With the right approach, they can be a gateway for your child’s positive growth.
The most popular video games, and all of esports, are built on competition. When our children compete with someone at (or near) their level of experience, they learn and grow. Properly managed, this is exactly the type of conditions that teach kids how to perform under pressure. Healthy competition teaches children to be their very best when the situation calls for it.
Inclusivity & Diversity
Our children are growing up in a world of diversity, inclusion and gender equality. What sport is preparing our children for that world? Competitive video gaming has the potential to teach our kids to compete with respect and value differences. Competition is even more powerful when it is promoted among anyone and everyone. Esports offer a radically inclusive, diverse arena where all kids from all backgrounds and walks of life can shine and compete.
When players connect with other players who share their interests, the community that forms is naturally filled with mutual respect. Imagine your child coming together with kids from different backgrounds competing, training and working toward a common goal. More than any other form of competition, esports has the potential to break stereotypes, foster respect and prepare your children with skills that last a lifetime.
UNLEASH THE POWER OF VIDEO GAMES
We don’t know each other yet. And you’re probably asking yourself, “Why should I listen to this guy?” That’s an excellent question. There are many experts in the world, some with PHD’s. I’m not one of those guys.
I am an engineer, and a scout. Scouting the edges of technology is how I earned 11 patents. Understanding game development is how I became a vice president for the Walt Disney Company. Knowing how children interact with each other through video games is how I created the mobile video game party industry when I founded GameTruck.
Why should that matter to you? Because I believe my experience can save you time. Kids grow up fast. You need solutions now. I also believe I can help you stop being afraid of video games and begin to unleash their power.
And video games are powerful. Make no mistake.
Video games are no longer the simple diversions we grew up with. Modern competitive video gaming is now the fastest growing sport in the world. Sophisticated, connected games are changing the way our kids think and play. It’s a whole new game and no one bothered to teach you the rules. But you don’t have to figure it out on your own.
It’s time to shift the conversation about video games. It’s time to make this exciting, wondrous technology work for us and the children we care about. So let’s get started.
