Esports For Parents has unveiled a brand new blog focused on topics relating to Esports, gaming, and how parents can help their kids learn about opportunities in the emerging world of online gaming and Esports.
“The platform leads the way in working to understand the ever-changing world of online gaming and Esports. Whether it’s information about specific games, college, scholarships, or even parenting, Esports For Parents has you covered,” says Sean Nicholson of Esports For Parents.
Sean, a parent, gamer, and technologist himself, has spent much of his teen years and adult life playing video games.
“There are a lot of parents out there who grew up playing Pac-Man and Donkey Kong during middle school and high school at the local arcade and games on their Atari 2600, PlayStation, or Sega Genesis. These same parents are now raising children who have grown up on games like Fortnite, Rocket League, and Minecraft,” explains Sean.
Like kids who want to grow up to become professional football or tennis players, Sean says many kids also aspire to be professional Esports athletes or work in the gaming industry as developers, designers, and even coaches.
Sean and Deb Nicholson created the blog to be able to share their journey and their view as parents in the world of online gaming and Esports. They also wanted to provide answers to questions that they have heard from other parents of gamers.
“As parents of a child who grew up playing Rocket League and has played on a collegiate Rocket League team, we thought it might be helpful to share our experiences and create content that helps parents of gamers and aspiring Esports athletes understand how to talk with their gamer, what to expect in the Esports industry, and learn more about the video games their kids are playing,” explains Deb, a parent, puzzle enthusiast, and healthcare professional.
For example, for parents with children or teens spending a lot of time playing DOTA 2, Esports For Parents shares a few nuggets of knowledge about the game that might help both parents and gamers better understand it.
On the other hand, kids trying to convince their parents that a career in Esports and professional gaming is a real thing may check out the Esports For Parent’s article that provides tips on opening the dialogue and evolving the conversation over time.
Additionally, Esports For Parents offers resources like a comprehensive article on some great cold-weather or warm-weather gift ideas for gamers who have a tough time keeping their hands, feet, and ears warm or cold during marathon gaming sessions. Parents can also check out some gift ideas for gamers who love to play Call of Duty and how they can help them show off their passion for the game.
Sean and Deb also lead the charge in bringing out comprehensive blog articles on the biggest games in Esports and some insights as to which games are most popular, which have the biggest tournament pools, and more.
