–Keith Stuart, Best Selling Author / Guardian Games Editor

Kids are far more motivated when they are having fun. Games are fun.
Parents are happier and far better at everything when they are less stressed.

What is Different About The PGC? It’s The P•U•P Way

P•U•P stands for People Understanding People. And we do!

The PGC has been developed using years of professional experience working with kids with social difficulties and their parents. The PGC also continues to incorporate the latest scientific research including this HUGE study on kids and screen time.

For every 30 minutes of screen time there is a 49% increased risk of expressive speech delay

Excessive screen time can impinge on children’s ability to develop optimally.

The takeaway is to have more fun away from the screen with Games In Real Life = The PGC!

Bring more joy and less stress into the lives of kids with social difficulties and, just as importantly, for their parents!
