The biggest disappointment for the players in Turkey, in the form of their appreciation for the passion they have developed many positive aspects of the game thanks to the parents of children stems from building less interaction with them. Because mainly the social aspects of gaming and gaming are very different from movies and music. The skills that parents appreciate are listed as follows: foreign language learning (47%), creativity (41%), social skills (30%) and problem solving (30%). 48% of those surveyed believe that their overall relationship will be better if their parents also "play".
"The game has been of great support to many people this year," says Andrew Winton, Kaspersky VP of Marketing. He offered solace, relaxation and companionship in difficult times. However, for many families, negative perceptions of the game have the opposite effect in terms of enabling an open dialogue and building relationships. We hope that the wise words of mothers will help start better and more positive conversations between actors and parents. ”
