Abstract

This explorative study was conducted to investigate parents’ thoughts and attitudes toward children playing digital games. The qualitative study was carried out with individual interviews on 12 parent participants. Findings of the study revealed that, generally parents had negative attitudes towards their children playing digital games. They thought that these games can affect their children’s growth negatively. Carrying out this study helped to explore the current opinions of parents. The findings could be used as a guide to develop appropriate training sessions in raising awareness of parents to understand the positive effect of digital games.
