I’m currently trying to establish whether this is cute family bonding, or a recipe for mutual destruction. This family likes to hangout with each other virtually in World of Warcraft, which they would argue brings them together more than families that are always too busy for each other.
While I see the logic, I have to remember that this is World of Warcraft, a game rarely played in moderation, and yes they might be a tight knit clan, but such an activity could easily make ALL of them cut off from the outside world. And if they all have level 80 characters, chances are the game has done just that.
I hope to play video games with my kids someday, but I think you definitely have to set some time limits to be a responsible parent to your kids. Oh god, I’m turning into my own parents! What’s happening to me?!?
