Parents addicted to Minecraft? As if.

One of my favourite Facebook groups right now is called Moms Against Minecraft Addiction. It’s a fascinating group of people, all with valid concerns. In a mom post about a 5 year old girl playing Minecraft, I liked this small piece of advice.

Sit down and watch them play. Get excited about what they are building. Help them find guides to building more advanced structures. Ask them to show you how it works and why they chose certain building materials.  Find out what they want to build next.

What if parents became addicted to this kind of thing?
