2.   Activities that have never been done in real life by children and parents.  Technology and internet games continue in virtual worlds.  Just by pressing certain buttons, on-line players can command avatars to take on unacceptable acts while participants of the natural world talk about dirty words through instant messaging.  Furthermore, those worlds are loaded with virtual counterfeits.  Critics have thrown issues about unlawful activities in the natural world by using avatars that resemble children.

3.   Unacceptable practices that many games deliberately support.  Parents should monitor their kids because some electronic games may exalt different wicked practices.  One famous game may feature activities not suitable for children.  The most popular of these technology and internet games can be accessed and played in the internet—live.  This will take children to play for whole new level.  From the comfort of your home, kids are able to challenge people who are playing the same on the other side of the globe.

For the parents, remember that on-line games are not all dreadfully bad for kids.  However, they are time-consuming and addictive.  So spend moments to scrutinize the quantity of time your children spend while using technology and internet games.  Classify the dangers they may get into to help them avoid being in the dark side of electronic games!
