First of all, this isn’t even true. But he claims everyone else (well, almost everyone) is allowed to play Fortnite and I’m the only stick-in-the-mud parent. I asked him if his friends jumped off a bridge, would he? He looked at me blankly and said, “There … aren’t bridges in the game.”
He’s got a point here. The only nice thing about Fortnite, in my opinion, is that its popularity has encouraged my serious little robot child to dance. The game is responsible for dance crazes like The Floss, The L, Best Mates and Groove Jam. They’re adorable, like this generation’s Macarena. Apparently, there are also lots of silly costumes, like spacesuits and dinosaur outfits, that appeal to younger kids like him.
He thinks this is a great selling point. It is not.
I am also a mom to refuses to let her 9 year old play Fornite. He has told me all of the same things as your son told you but I still won’t budge. Mario games forever!!
Good ol’ Mario! He’s a classic — and he never jumped out of a flying bus to try to kill people!
