Online Gaming Resources

Be aware that most gaming devices can directly connect children to the Internet. Most gaming devices come with parental controls and family safety settings. These settings allow parents to restrict access to inappropriate games, restrict audio chat use, choose with whom their children play, and limit the amount of time their children play. Enough Is Enough® recommends that children should only play online games with parent-approved gamers that the child knows offline.
