Technology and how we use is constantly evolving and I’m always trying to keep up with latest releases. Thanks to Xbox, I’ve been given the opportunity to enjoy their latest console and put it through its paces. Let me share with you all the top things to try with the whole family on Xbox One S system.
I’m picky when it comes to how my children engage in technology, particularly screen time, which you can read my thoughts about that here. I might be the cheese that stands alone, but I do believe technology is important and can be used in a way that benefits a child and the whole family.
This photo makes me really laugh. Check out Possum and Boo’s face when they discovered they had their very own Xbox One S system. I think hubby’s face looked a little similar.
The interesting fact is, this Xbox One S system does a whole lot more than just play games, as you would expect. It brings all your family entertainment needs together so everyone is happy and can enjoy it together. Let me share with you some top things to try with the whole family on Xbox One S system.
Personalised accounts for everyone
One thing I really like about the Xbox One S is that everyone in the family can have their own individual user profile, therefore having a unique experience suited to them.
As a parent you can set yourself as the master user so that the whole family is accessing the content that’s right for them. You can also set a time limits to manage the screen time!
Movie night with Xbox One S
Quite honestly, all your big screen entertainment is rolled into one with Xbox One S where you will find your favourite films and TV, Netflix, Stan, live TV, Foxtel Go, YouTube or Twitch. There will always be something to enjoy as a family, creating a great night in.
Games night for the family
Every week our family try to commit to having a games night. It usually happens on a weekend. We love it because it encourages us to play together as a family, learn new skills (like how to be a gracious winner), problem solve and more. One option would be to include a family friendly game using the Xbox One S system. There are a huge range of games for all ages and interests.
