“Get Out of My World” — Minecraft Madness

15 Apr

When the kids get home from school they throw down their backpacks and try to grab their iPods…like little crack addicts they are yearning to get on and play Minecraft.  As soon as they complete their homework they congregate together and start virtually assaulting each other in the world of Minecraft.

And this is what I hear “Get out of my world!  Watch out for the creepers!  Look there’s a zombie!  I need food…who has food!  Hey who’s hitting me!?” And on and on.  Yet they tell me it’s fun.  If I allowed it they would play all. day. long!

Anyone else have Minecraft addicts?

    Um, YES. My son is addicted to all things Minecraft, but I allow him to stay pasty white sitting up in his room and not getting a single ray of sunshine like a vampire, surgically attached to his pc because for the first time in his life he seems to have connected with another kid, with whom he plays this game and chats over a headset during said screen time. It hasn’t been easy for Ben with his Asperger’s, and I just can’t help but feel grateful for Minecraft. And besides, these kids will all end up being fantastic engineers some day! Or working in coal mines.
