Oh what a joy this lovely game is... I d like to thank who ever inventing it for a rather dull but strangely addictive game (I call it borecraft). I am not addicted but my 7 year old son! Its all he talks about, thinks about it can be such a drain. I see that the game can be good for helping source materials and build things but thats it. I must be missing the boat? Or I am so uncool I just do not get it. I am sure there are worse games and many which he isnt allowed to play!
He stopped playing about a year ago and I thought that was it but its back again. This time an added bonus of online youtube videos, which is basically somebody playing and recording it. He loves it I find it tedious. I see his behavior change too, hes grumpy and lazy when sitting in front of a screen. He has even been extremely rude, where we have to sit him down and have a chat.
It makes me feel a bit sad, but has also caused me to be more intentional in bringing other things out, such as board games and painting. Just to stop him asking, he is only allowed to play for a hour a day but its the asking and moaning when he is not. Its such a pain!
Roll on the summer when we can go to the park/ beach for hours and not be couped indoors sheltering from the horrible weather. Isnt it basically lego on a game. I like those lego games we often play those together they are good fun!
Do you have any tips/ advice for boring minecraft?
