There really is little you must do to convince a young person about when it comes to playing PC games. The tricky part is always in convincing them to read or take part in a reading community. The endless playful behaviour though can come me back to hurt them as reading is a very beneficial activity to the mind and needs to encourage continuously. Negotiating reading time with equal play on the PC then also means trying to figure out which activity needs to happen during which times of the day, and in what sequence. Monitoring them too is important.
The PC Game Frenzy amongst Youths
PC games came in with the internet and cyber age and arguably stole the minds of many teenagers and some adults. We live in a time where you can do little without the internet, and in a time where it is impossible to expect a young person to not want to play any games. PC games have arguably replaced the entertainment of old which included playing outdoor sports, and has also impacted minds in a worrisome manner due to the educational benefits you cannot see sometimes because of the games they play. To some extent, one can argue that their minds do not grow.
The Reading Challenge for Youths
Playing games as mobile legends PC before reading a book or even allowing it though seemingly can come across as prioritizing fun before education and even information. Not only is it difficult to get a young person to pick up a book and read today, but it arguably does them no good when the expectation is to only read after having played a game, as by that time they are dragging themselves only to fulfil what has been asked. It makes more sense to encourage reading before playing, and to engage in conversations where you can understand how well they have understood the books given.
