Parents and gaming - Time for a truce?

Every so often, the media spouts articles focusing on the potential dangers of gaming - for instance addiction and violent behavior.
Various information material directed at parents often present games to them as something dangerous and unknown. But what happens when gamers become parents themselves? How do they lay down the rules for gaming in their own families, and do they have any lessons they can teach to non-gaming parents?
Stine and Kristine share their findings from an ongoing research project at NTNU, where they have talked with gamer parents.
