Sure, I played a few video games growing up, mainly Pac-Man and Tetris. Not like my son does, though. He plays video games the way I swore I’d never let a kid play video games.
We limit his time, of course, but his obsession is beyond my comprehension.
It concerns me how much time he cares to spend playing, researching, and talking about video games. The one consolation is this: The talking he does is with us. I am incredibly grateful that, at ten, he is happy to share his interests with us.
And so, even though video games aren’t my thing, I listen.
