Kid Friendly Games

Aug 17, 2007
Kids love to mimic the adults in every whatever fashion that they see adults do. They see their elders tinker on computers; they'd love to bang on the computer as well. Parents would love nothing more than to indulge their kids in everything that could be useful to them. The dilemma that parents usually face is if the kid computer games that they are after are really kid friendly. So how can parents choose from among the hundreds of computer games that are circulating in the market?

The following suggests upgrading your computer to suit the computing ability of your children followed by suggested kid computer game tips.

If your computer has seen its days it will be better to upgrade your computer so it runs on newer versions. Nowadays, a $600 machine will serve the purpose (you may even find one that throws in a printer. For a few dollars more, you can add the software and needed pheriperals. What you should be looking for are machines that have a 40 gigabyte HDD, with 256 megabytes of memory.

Equip the PC with a cute mouse. While a regular mouse will work with your children, a specialized smaller mouse will help them navigate through your PC better.

How much video time? While it is important that a child spends time with a computer, it is just as good if their screen time is monitored. Two hours of video time including TV time is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
