The problem of the XXI century is a child and a computer, more precisely, a child and a virtual game space at his disposal. The usual dogma of book education is discarded and young parents who have just mastered the wisdom of the world view through the screen of the monitor are forced to direct the interests of their unreasonable child into a new game world.

Play in computer games, children start before they master the alphabet and the initial receptions of the account. If the child can reach the keyboard and see bright pictures on the screen, he will do it all the time. If he understands the logical connection between his verbal actions and changes in the visual series, then you, poor parents, are gone.

Your unreasonable child has entered the age of maturity. Admittedly, the addiction to computer games in pre-school children occurs most often as an imitative form. Young parents with their own example, as it were, invite a child to join a certain "club of initiates", being not ready to determine the degree of initiation.

How to choose for the child 5-8 years of computer games, accessible to his understanding, developing the basic skills and while not having a negative impact on the child's psyche yet knows no one. However, there is a proven method of collective examination, which allows indifferent parents to give their colleagues the necessary information about the passed game paths.

Let's start with the simplest source of the child's play resource (IR) input to your home computer. As the advanced users have already been able to verify, there can be several options here.

Where to search or not to search a computer game

According to the classification of the well-known analyst of the computer gaming market for the children of SS Kobzev, we will identify and discuss the main four groups.

1. The simplest and most expensive way to meet children's needs in a new game field is to purchase a licensed version of an unknown game. The word "unknown" is the key here, since, like any marketable product actively promoted by the manufacturer, the purchased game can be a dummy that does not interest your child at all.

Information about such computer traps has not been collected yet, but we hope with your help to create a register of "bad" children's game collections.

2. Use of resources of specialized pedagogical sites. Find developing R \u0026 D for your child's age group, dear parents, you will be able to, but there are no guarantees of his playing activity. Typically, this source provides a set of stamped exercises for the development of memory, attention and basic numeracy skills.

3. Download children's games with dedicated gaming sites across philhosting in normal access or a premium account. Just note that trying to free something that has a price, usually turn out more costly than option 1. In addition to the purse may be affected and your computer, gain any infection from unverified sources. Install big games, as a rule, if there is, then a big scratch. To be honest, it's a long way from big disappointments for the child.

4. Free on-line access or download without registration. The best way for parents to test and present an interesting computer game to the children. Unfortunately, in this huge honey barrel are scattered a lot of spoons, not always even with tar. The most attractive form of gaming activities for children, but, alas, only under the supervision of adults.

Those lucky people who managed to catch the similarity of the "goldfish" in the form of an exciting, intelligent, childless game that is devoid of aggression, please let the concerned community of parents know about it.

Suppose that the search for a computer toy has succeeded, the child enthusiastically clicks the keys, the parents are engaged in their own affairs, but ... Are you sure that the virtual playing field chosen by you for the child is consistent with the elementary pedagogical tasks of its age group, contributes to the development of the necessary mental functions? How to assess the developing potential of children's computer games, we will discuss in the next article.
