HELP! My Kid Wants to Make Video Games for a Living | Advice for Parents from an Industry Veteran

My husband, Mr. Gamer, has worked in the video game industry for over 20 years, and he often gets asked by parents and kids how to become a video game developer. I interviewed him to find out what words of advice he has for parents whose kids play a lot of video games and say they want to make video games for a living. Topics include:

► What should parents do if their kid wants to make video games?
► What are the different kinds of video game careers?
► How can parents support their child's dream?
► Are video games evil or a waste of time?
► What is some practical advice for kids who are serious about becoming a video game developer?

P.S. To protect the privacy of our kids, we’ve chosen not to show our faces on camera. Thanks for your patience and enjoy our emoji heads!

Do you think video games are a waste of time or an avenue for creative expression? What would you do if your kid wanted to make video games as a career?
