Arcade and Computer Games Meet

There are many arcade games out on the Internet that kids the age of 6 to 8 years old can play. There are some that are violent so we have chosen not to review those. Kids get so much violence from other influences; we are not supporting that position. The games we ranked were challenging but still could be won if the child had enough hand-eye coordination. Try to encourage them as they play so that they will not get discouraged and quit. Remaining positive is always better for their young growing minds. So let them play the games as we think that games do have a place in a growing child’s realm. They teach so many skills that the child will need in their grown-up lives. There are other ways to teach this same skill, but children seem to learn faster and with less grumbling if they enjoy the method.

The most relaxing and stress free game was Yuniti while the Mini Gallery was the most stressful of all the games we reviewed. Seeing Santa plastered on the snow was funny and while he slid down the ravine he said weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Yuniti is a great hand, eye coordination game and it is very relaxing. The child between 4 and 8 can easily play this game. It lasts as long as you can keep the balls from hitting the ground. Even an adult could get to love this addicting game as it is so relaxing. You have a green ball that you are in control of with your arrow keys. When a blue ball floats downward, you bump it with the green ball so that it will go up again. It seems quit tame at first, then, more balls start falling. Within 40 seconds you may have at least 3 or 4 balls falling around the same time. The longer your score time is the better you are at it.

After Glow is a game where you are guiding your ship through several levels while collecting orbs. You must complete each level in the shortest possible amount of time. The levels are based around time and separated into easy mode, medium and hard mode which leaves insane mode for those who have conquered the game. Your score is based on how long it takes you to maneuver through the obstacles. If you accidentally hit the wall you are penalized. The harder you hit a wall the more penalties the game will give you. It is definitely a game of hand and eye coordination and learning to use those arrow keys ceee! This game does take some skills so a child of 6 to 8 could probably learn to play this game.

Mini Gallery is another arcade game that probably a 6 year old to 8 year old would want to play. You have a basket where you want to catch the “good” eggs that are falling from the sky. There are also “bad” eggs falling and you sure do not want those eggs in your basket. If you get a full basket of good eggs, then you click the mouse and cook them. Even on the easy mode, this game was quit challenging as some of the eggs looked good as they were falling, but at the last moment, they cracked open! A child needs to have great hand eye coordination as well as the ability to tell a good egg from a bad egg. This is a short lived game if you cannot maneuver the mouse and differentiate between the good and the bad eggs.

Guidelines For Kids’ TV and Computer Games – How Much is Enough?

Sometimes when life becomes hectic it can be tempting to parent via the path of least resistance. One of the “easiest” paths is allowing our kids to turn on the Television, put on a DVD, or play with a computer.

Unfortunately these “paths of least resistance” often become draining and disempowering for both parents and children. While initially there’s a sense of relief of not having to engage and think – over a period of time we lose energy from a member of our family not being engaged with their home and life.

The opposite can be true when we stand firm and invite our kids to engage with life and creativity – instead of disappearing into “the box”. Initially, there’s effort required on both the part of the parent and child, while the child gets in touch with their inspiration. However, once engaged in a project – creates it’s own momentum, and on completion gives a cause for celebration.

If you’d like to discover your child’s idea schedule around TV and computers, as well as how best to implement this schedule answer the following questions:

1) How much does your child currently spend in front of the TV or computer daily?

2) What’s the positive and negative consequences of this investment?

3) How much time ideally would you love your kids to spending in front of the TV/computer on a daily/weekly basis.

4) What would be the benefits in this reduction for both you and your child?

5)What must you do to implement your ideal TV/computer schedule?
