China gives parents power to pull the plug on kids' web games

By Super Admin

New Delhi, February 8 (ANI): Parents in China can make use of a program that can help terminate their kids' online gaming accounts.

The country's Ministry of Culture and six major online gaming companies have come up with the program to tackle teenagers' obsession with online games.

Parents and guardians can ask the game operators to end services for minors and would be required to submit their kids' account numbers, and documents proving their relation in the process, reports the China Daily.

NetEase.com was said to have already started accepting requests from worried parents.

A post published on the company's website claimed the staff would contact parents within 72 hours after receiving their complaints, which once confirmed, would lead to the suspension of gaming accounts. (ANI)
