I have enthusiastic gamers in my house. Personally, gaming has never appealed to me, but to each his own. It is a well-known fact that young children learn best through playing. So, the type of games you allow them to play and how long they play, should be a top priority for parents. And of course, balanced with play outside. I have always been against kids playing violent games, and if you have any doubts about this, have a look at the Bobo Doll experiment here.
I am very happy that my son prefers to play Minecraft. When I saw that Microsoft offers Minecraft education edition as part of their M365 Education Suite, I was very impressed. If you did not know, Microsoft also offers free (yes, completely free😊) Office 365 to students and faculty, for their online editions. And the pricing on the A3 and A5 suites, is more than affordable.
