...you and your kid/s do together in-game?

...your kid/s can learn from the game?



...you and your kid/s do together in-game?
We play together and talk about how his character relates to his world, use funny voices as if we are the characters talking, and make a game out of doing a quest (gathering and drops).


...your kid/s can learn from the game?
Our son learns patience from waiting for his pet to get aggro before attacking, money management from saving gold and waiting for important purchases, how an auction works, and lots of other stuff I can't think of right now.. lol

this is from the kid point of view: NOTHING
I attempted to bring my mom into guildwars when i was playing it...total fail, all I did was make a character in her name and she watches me play

anyway, maybe my family isnt just yet ready for WoW Laughing


what can I learn from the game???
A LOT
my vocabulary acctualy increased because of wow, reading quests and zone names and items etc.

It's meeeee!! ><

Stomp said I had to have an avatar and since I had just gotten my T7.5 shoulders and Betrayer of Humanity, I figured those were pretty defining things about my toon, so I threw together and MS paint of myself for an avatar.

I can't help it, I'm silly AND a crappy artist. It's a bad combination and a worse likeness. Smile

I embrace the good and the bad in myself!

When my daughter and I play together, we usually quest together. She is still trying to not melee as a hunter. For her birthday last year I bought her the bow of searing arrows. A few days after she got it i walked in on her in the battlegrounds melee fighting. I did a gear check on her armory page, went to the ah, bought her some better options, and enchanted them ( she was wearing of the owl and of the whale gear). Since then, except for the melee problem, she knows better what stats she needs, and she performs better as a hunter. Now we are working on the how to make money part of the game.

A family that games together, stays together. That's my motto.

I'm currently playing with my youngest, though I've played with all of the other three, and will be playing with my soon to be son-in-law soon.

My youngest and I have a blast playing together, however he really doesn't like to play the game by himself... which is fine with me... although I'd love it if he'd level his DK to my druid's level! That way I could level that druid faster.

We quest. On our old PvP realm, we looked for trouble.

As for learning from the game, I think that what my youngest has learned has been from us spending time together... not from the game.

Certainly the game helps kids learned to be organized, disciplined (perhaps) and work toward goals. However without the guidance of an adult, I believe that these positive game experiences are far overshadowed by the negative aspects of an MMO.

And by kids, I mean young kids, not teenagers.

When my eldest was still a teen playing the game, he learned to be very organized as well as how to deal with people, as the guild leader of the second largest progression guild on his realm.

Me my wife and my 7 yr old play. But most of the time it is me running my boy thru everything with him saying dad kill that, kill that and him picking up the loot. He is a totally decked out lvl 17 Tauren hunter. We always pull the laptops together and just spend some q.time together. For me that is what is important. Although he asked me the other day DAD why are you not leveling my guy??.

You should offer overnight delivery. She would probably go for that.
