Abstract

Online games are a place in the form of games that students very like because online games have their charm that makes students prefer games over studying or reading books. Online games have become a new habit in early childhood to adulthood. Worse, children are more susceptible to game addiction than adults. This creates problems in children's interest in reading, especially those at an early age because they tend to prefer playing games rather than reading books. This is caused by the emergence of a sense of addiction because the online game contains images and animations that are pretty interesting in the eyes of the players so that they are interested in continuing to play it. Worse, suppose early childhood does not have the will to control himself. In that case, the worst thing is that he becomes self-conscious and can cause the child to think egocentric (more attention to oneself to achieve profit or well-being by ignoring other people). This study aims to educate children at an early age about the dangers of online games and several ways to avoid addiction to online games. The method used in this research is qualitative with qualitative descriptive analysis methods such as interviews and documentation. Based on the results obtained are several positive and negative impacts of online games, ways to avoid addiction to online games, and the importance of the role of parents in monitoring the use of gadgets for children at an early age.
