This morning, my son shared a YouTube video with me about "10 Things Gamers' Parents Need To Know".
Here's my response ...
Mom speaking here ... I'm pretty good with most of this, but I wish there were some things that gamers knew...
My biggest is, dinner is served every night at roughly the same time,please don't start a new game or something that you can't walk away with before dinner. No one likes cold dinner. I haven't sat down since I got home from work, the least you can do is come to the table. Periodically, I will let you eat at your desk, but that is not an everyday thing.
Bedtime is bedtime, yes, I realize you can't pause. No, I don't care if you get kicked from the game for a period of time. I want to go to sleep also and 11 PM on a school night is too late, especially when I've said something every half hour for the past 2 hours. So, if need be, I will happily sing a bedtime song right next to your mike. I am not beyond making a fool of myself if it means you get the sleep you don't think you need.
Please don't make me disconnect the modem. My only time of relaxation is at night and I enjoy my Netflix.
