Online gaming builds confidence, community and skills.
COPE says lean in.
Listen to your kids, learn from your kids, play with your kids.
Parents have been guilted about gaming for too long. As parents of pro gamers, we have seen the reality. As professionals, we have seen the possibilities.
As a charity we strive to ensure every child has the same opportunities for successful futures fueled by their passion.

Every year, we take our kids to the doctor, buy them new running sneakers and soccer shin guards, and stress the importance of vegetables. But what are we doing to make sure they're gaming as healthy as possible? By focusing on and encouraging healthy gaming practices, hobbies can be safe and careers can be made.
Parents. Get your shit together.
If your kid is a musician (gamer), you give them love and you get the (expletive) out of the way.
