A few months ago our oldest son, Eivind, introduced me to Tribal Wars - an online strategy game. We ended up doing this together. It's been a wonderful learning experience for me, especially when it comes to doing something I've never done before - online gaming.

Instead of just banning it, why not help our kids learn to control this important new aspect of daily living by participating and getting involved.
