The Ministry of Culture, along with seven other central departments, announced on Monday the launching of the "parental watch project" in the online games industry beginning March 1.

The project will require online game companies to set up a web page, enquiry hotline and other special channels for parental supervision of their children.

Besides, these companies shall authorize parents, who want to monitor and control their children playing online games, to take measures to limit or ban the playing.

Also, the online game companies shall provide help to parents in supervising their children's online game accounts and preventing them from playing improper games, as part of the project.

The culture ministry tested the project in several online game companies in Feb last year, which proved effective in helping juveniles overcome addictions to online games.
