There are many kids video games available, but finding fun and safe kids videogames to play is not always easy. Parents are constantly worried about finding safe games for children to play. If your child is using the computer then you can put parental controls on the computer to protect your child. This will ensure that your child is only playing games that are safe for them. However when you have another games console it can be slightly more difficult.
Parental controls have been designed especially to put a parents mind at ease. Being a parent you have a responsibility to ensure your children do not play any games that are violent, contain swear words or encourage any bad behaviour. Unfortunately in the world we live in today, it’s far more difficult keeping tabs on the games that children play.
Many of the games are designed with high levels of violence and swearing. Children might be encouraged to rob from banks or steal vehicles. Games should help the user enjoy them, but when they are adult related they are likely to frighten children.
Some children have even shot people due to being taught this through play. Games should make a child enjoy them and encourage their learning in some way. There are many educational computer games for children and these can help a child’s progress at school.
Maths is an excellent way to encourage children to learn whilst also having fun. There are certain games that are part of a collection of favourite television character shows for children. Games like Noddy, Fireman Sam, Mario and other cartoon characters are all popular with children. These kind of characters are loved by children and are generally safe to play. They make wonderful birthday gifts for friends and family. If you are struggling to find a gift that your child will enjoy and they like playing on the computer then character games are excellent.
As a parent you will want to avoid any kind of games that encourage violence, bad language or behaviour, contain erotic or porn content. Always check the case and read the information on it before making a decision. Have a look at the pictures on the front and back of the case as this will give you a good idea what the game will be like. Pay attention to any words that sound alarming and always trust your instinct.
Creators of the game have a responsibility to inform players what is involved in the game. There are different legislation’s in certain Countries. Australian and German legislation is fairly tough, but Japanese is very lenient. Pay attention to different Countries and how they write each description of the game.
You can also read about what games are safe to play on the internet. There are special websites especially written that explain what is safe to play and what is not. Have a search on a search engine if you are struggling to find information about a particular game. There are literally thousands of sites devoted to Finding Fun and Safe Kids Videogames.
You’ve probably heard of an alley cat, a Persian cat and maybe even a Chinese hairless cat – but have you ever in your life heard of a Library Cat? Meet Dewey – the real-life library cat who made a very big impression on the members of his small town library – and left a very big hole in their hearts when he passed away after almost 20 years at the library.
On the morning of the one of the coldest days of the year, Spencer, Iowa librarian Vicki Myron found a tiny orange kitten nearly frozen to death in the library’s book drop. She saved the kitten’s life and named him Dewey Readmore Books. Little did Vicki know Dewey would go on to become one of the town’s most popular and famous residents ever!
After Vicki decided that Dewey’s home would be the library, the residents of the town of Spencer got to know him – and his crazy antics – pretty well. Dewey loved to play with his ball of red yarn, sleep in the smallest of boxes and hitch rides on the library’s book cart. But what Dewey loved most was people, and whenever someone needed him, Dewey always seemed to be there.
Once the word started to spread about the library’s special cat, people couldn’t seem to get enough of Dewey. He appeared in tons of papers, as well as TV shows and documentary films. And now he has his own book for kids – Dewey the Library Cat – so that children all over the world can learn more about this special cat.
We’re not giving much away by telling you that Dewey does die at the end of the book (the good parts about his life and friends are all in the middle). After all, cats only live so long and Dewey actually had a particularly long and healthy (not to mention extraordinary!) life. He lived to be almost 20 years old. After he died, Vicki didn’t think she would ever replace her dear library cat – but then she met another kitten in distress that just seemed to fit the role as Dewey’s successor purr-fectly! Dewey, however, will always be remembered – he’s even been honored in the town monument!
