Gaming online isn’t all fun and games, there are many dangers which you or your child could face. In this article, we are going to look into some of these dangers.
One of the main dangers and most common is cyberbullying. This is the same as bullying in general, just online. Most people like to use gaming as an escape route from real life due to no one knowing who you truly are. However, this does not stop people from bullying. It is important that you or your children know that there are ways to stop this. You can mute the chat, block the player who is bullying you or report it to the gaming administrator.
Another danger is online predators. Online gaming is an easy way for predators to target children. This is because they can be who they want to be. They can pretend to be a similar age to the child, friend them and hurt them.
