With the prevalence of technology, especially mobile, our lives and the lives of our kids are heavily influenced by an ever expanding new world. As parents it is necessary to know what kinds of apps our kids can and should be exposed to.
With summer, no doubt your kids will be playing more games on a device to fill the time for both you and them.
So how do you decide what games are best for them? Sure you can you use the rating system, that’s a great start. But what if you were to ask yourself the question, “How could I use these apps in a nontraditional way?” You can be certain developers had a particular way they saw how their app would be used.
