This has been one of the hardest years I have ever had as a parent. It has been filled with grief, loss, and hurt that should never be experienced. Even worst, my kids had a front row seat to a lot of it. When you go through hard times it can be simpler to just tell the kids it isn’t for them to worry about. However, sometimes you have to have hard discussions. There are seasons for explaining hard things to kids. We are in the middle of that season and I wanted to share some tips to help you if you are dealing with anything similar.
When Minecraft first came out I wasn’t a fan. In fact, I forbid it from my home. To this day I can’t remember the exact reasons. I know it had a little to do with the online gameplay. I remember hearing about shady people within the game. I even remember hearing of kids becoming obsessed and refusing to put it down. All of these temporarily influenced my opinion but after a time I decided to do my own research. I would love to share the 5 things I didn’t know about Minecraft and how they changed my mind.
