The Healthy Approach to Gaming
Solving gaming conflicts through education
Gaming is now a global phenomenon. It’s estimated that 93% of children play video games, and if you are reading this, there is a good chance yours do too.
You may know that gaming can cause problems; some children neglect their studies and their social lives to play. We understand that as a parent this can be alarming, especially if you aren’t experienced with gaming yourself.
That’s where we come in. Gaming does not have to cause problems for your family – with the correct help, it is possible to Gamewell. This means that your child will be able to play video games without them interrupting the rest of their life, and you won’t have to worry about this happening. Through our revolutionary ed-tech platform, a happy compromise is possible for everyone.
If you have ever asked yourself why your child gets angry after gaming, why your child has lost interest in their other hobbies, or debated turning the WiFi off, our course is for you.
Our course has been designed by some of the luminaries in Gaming Psychology to educated parents on what gaming actually is, why people do it, what problem gaming looks like, and how to address problem gaming.
At Gamewell, we believe that amazing change can come about through education. We know that there is no easy mode and no cheat code for being a good parent – it takes hard work. As you progress through our course you will understand why your child games, if they have a gaming problem, and how simply telling them not to game is an approach which is doomed to failure.
We will provide the tools for you and your family to come to an agreement where everyone is happy – your child will game a healthy amount, and you can rest assured that their mental wellbeing and the rest of their life is in good shape!
Once you have completed the Parents Programme, we recommend you do the Gamers Programme with your child. This programme will help you continue your gaming education. And it will really help you see things from your child’s point of view. You can see more information of the Gamers Programme by clicking here.
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then our course is for you. By completing the Gamewell Parents course you will understand why your child games, how you can negotiate with them about gaming, and how to identify and address problem gaming.

Your questions answered
Healthy gaming is a collaborative process and both sides need to be informed.
By completing the Parents Program you will understand the journey to healthy gaming just as well as your child does, and you can go on your journey together.
Show an interest in what they are doing – all too often parents think their child doesn’t want their parent involved in their gaming. This doesn’t mean you have to put on a headset, pick up a controller, and dive into a Fortnite session with them. Simply asking them questions and showing that you want to understand their hobby will improve this relationship with them and open up the possibility of positive communication both ways.
Our Parents course will show you how to talk about gaming with your child, and how to negotiate the best deal for both of you.
Our program uses a four step methodology: communication, video game, negotiation, and scheduling. Our course contains pioneering therapeutic approaches designed to be used by any parent.
Gamewell offer our Professionals package which is designed for anyone with a real interest in gaming.
