Preschool internet games- a step forward or a regression?
We live an epoch when computer is a part of our lives, an every day tool. Now we wonder how our predecessors could manage without one. Then it’s necessary our children get great abilities and knowledge about using it.
Internet games are created in order to develop communication, socialization abilities, to develop intelligence and imagination. Generally speaking these are multi-user that allows the exchange of information and ideas between the players. If we skip over the fact that games are a mean of entertainment, a way of spending some time in a funny and pleasant way what else we can say about these games?
Let’s not forget about the competition spirit. Playing a game the kid meets for the first time this concept. All of a sudden he understands the meaning of it and he tries to be better and better, to improve his abilities and skills. He starts to feel the need to learn many new things. The more dynamic and interactive the game is, the more the children develop the combative spirit. In short time they become more interested in trying other games, of a different kind and from now on the possibilities are unlimited. From a game to more important and useful things is only a step.
Another advantage is the speed of using the computer. The more the kid plays the more his speed is higher. They reach to type like professionals, not to talk about the speed of learning different things in a various domains.
A large team of professionals are hiding behind these games. Their purpose is to test children’s intelligence and their mental spirit. In this way they try to create games that help the kids to evolve.

But we must not forget that parent have an important role in this matter too. They must be very careful and select only that games that are educative for their children.
