My son has shifted most of his life, instead of the millions of square kilometres of the earth at his disposal to the 20 x 30 cm screen world of WOW. He started his onlife life at 7 after our divorce on WOW lite- Runescape and now has graduated to the big time, which engenders an almost 10 hr per day committment (if he is not rudely interrupted by real life.
This frustrates me no end (understatement) and this blog is to document our journey to get him LIVING in the real world instead of just ‘existing’ in it and ‘getting through’ his days before he can return to the comfort of WOW.
As a singleparent his WOW world has affected my world greatly, so it will be a learning journey for us both. We all live in our own fantasy worlds. I know I have one too, I want us to both grasp REALITY together as much as we can. Can we fulfill this critical quest together as he starts from 14 and me from 39?!
