Parents Guide to the Pivot

Making the Most From a Failed Experiment

As parents, our lives consist of constant projects and events in hope of bringing positive experiences to our children. Sometimes and let’s face it most of the time there are bumps and obstacles in even the most planned out days or activities. It’s easy advice to say make the best of a situation, but why not pivot and make the blundered experience into something else entirely. It’s better to have a great experience than to accept failure, especially with your kids. There’s no point in letting an obstacle ruin your family’s day and an event that your child may have already built up in their mind. Children are full of creative ideas and play. If they can make the most of what they have at their disposal so can we.

Day of the Dead!

dayofdead

No, the Day of the Dead has no relation to our US celebrated holiday, Halloween. Day of the Dead is a holiday that originated in Mexico and is all about honoring the afterlife. It is a day to celebrate friends and family that have passed and to reiterate that death is not something to be afraid of. The day is celebrated by visiting loved ones in the graveyard, setting up memorials to honor them, and parades where people adorn skeleton makeup and costumes. If you are unfamiliar with the holiday we recommend doing a little research or watching the family-friendly movie, Coco to learn more about how this holiday is celebrated.

Ultimate Parents Guide to Among Us

Is Among Us safe for kids? 

The short answer is no unless you properly understand what’s going on, and do some research yourself. With some guidance, it can be a safe place for many ages to enjoy.

This depends on the age of the son or daughter, Among Us itself is only mildly violent with very cartoonish and animated death which protects our kids from seeing too much gore or disturbing imagery. It does however still revolve around murder and violence at its core. Among Us is not nearly as violent as many modern games. The real reason to be cautious of this game is largely it still includes a public chat. No matter how hard developers work, people will ruin it or find ways to make these rooms unsafe. Our advice is if you are going to let your child play, make sure you are monitoring their activity. Only allow them to play with friends and family in a private room, staying out of public games. If your child is older and you can trust them and have good communication, then the game is tame compared to many AAA (Blockbuster) titles.¬†¬†Join us as we navigate through and give you the ultimate parent’s guide to Among Us.
