Why it's good for kids to play Minecraft
As a mom of a little man who is completely obsessed with Minecraft, I really enjoyed reading this article. Many of these reasons we have already seen - Mason is much more creative and has an impressive grasp of spatial needs. His building both inside and outside of the game has taken leaps and bounds since we introduced him to the game. He has also gotten much more social. He used to be a little boy that wouldn't talk to anyone, now he is happy to tell everyone what he is building in the game, what his plans for the future are, and what the newest technique he learned is. Sometimes we worry that the game is consuming his entire life because it's ALL he wants to do or talk about, but we limit his exposure and time to play and have found a very happy balance. I have so many good things to say about this game... including how much fun my husband and I have when we play with him!!
