Gaming – The Good and the Bad

Collegiate e-gamer, Oscar Filson, talks about the benefits and drawbacks of spending time playing games on a screen. He is a remarkable young man who, through gaming, has built friendships and community, learned about computers and figured out some strategies for managing his time in both his real world and his on-line world. He has some words of advice for young gamers and parents as he offers us a glimpse into his unique world – one that didn’t exist just a short time ago.

I consider it my life’s work to build community and connection. I am a warrior mom of two teenage girls, a passionate educator and musician. I also have first hand experience parenting a teen through very difficult times. I have embarked on a journey to combine my experiences as an educator, artist and as a parent to help develop programs to support and educate parents, especially those struggling in their relationship with “tweens,” teens and young adults. I am a graduate of The Parent Coaching Institute. I am currently the co-chair of the St. Luke’s Pediatric Family Advisory Council representing families with children hospitalized due to a mental health crisis. I am on the board of the Idaho Suicide Prevention Coalition. I am an Associate Member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association and I am committed to their Principles of Good Practice.
