My Son Needs MA - Minecrafters Anonymous

My fabulous son and I were having a discussion over breakfast. It went something like this:

Him: 'I can play Minecraft for the rest of the day.'

Me: 'No, I said you can't play all day.'

Him: 'I didn't play at 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 or 7 or 8. So I won't be playing ALL day.'

Me: 'Okay, you can't play for the rest of the day.'

Him: 'What? I can't play at all?'


He then walked away looking so dejected I said he looked like Quasimodo. He told me he was being Steve. (That's the main character in Minecraft, apparently. I didn't realize he even had a name...)

Lesson learned: your attempts to be reasonable and sane around a nine year old addicted to a video game are futile.
