Video Games with Mom and Dad
You can introduce them to some of the classics like Pac Man, Super Mario Brothers, or Duck Hunt.
Is your child bummed about not being able to play baseball or soccer? So are the pros. Many of them are playing each other on PlayStation and XBox. Try playing your child’s favorite sports with them.
Let your child introduce you to something new. As an adult, I never really played video games. My youngest son talked me into trying “Clash of Clans”. Now both of my sons and I play the game with a team of kids and adults from across the world. We have team members from India, England, The Philippines, Argentina, Italy, and across the United States. As they play the game, they also talk about the Covid 19 quarantine, school, hobbies, and jobs. It is a great way to enjoy an activity and learn a little about people from all over the world.
Sitting in a dark room playing video games all day is not good for our kids, but finding a way to play some video games with your child might give you a new dimension to your relationship – and a new activity to enjoy long after Covid 19.
