Parents should parent

I know a good few dads (and maybe one or two moms) read this blog, and they play video games after their offspring has gone to bed so I thought this Penny Arcade article would be of interest.

The cartoon that goes with it is a blast too, and rings a bell with me as I’ve watched my son play through yet another level of Little Big Planet (although to be fair, he plays it in the evening when it’s too cold or dark to go out anyway).

I wonder if he’d enjoy Minecraft. Building worlds and blowing up worlds would appeal to him I’m sure. He already wants to to get an electronics kit he spotted in Maplins. A kit that he’s a bit too young for, but the little boy in me wants to get it for him too, just so I can play with resisters, capacitors and diodes again. 🙂
