People v’s technology

peoplevtechD: Can I play on Temple Run today?

Me: It’s up to Vikki, if she’s OK with it, then so am I – but remember that people come first.

D: I KNOW people come first… but I don’t know what it means.

Me: It means that, if you’re playing on a game and a real person talks to you, you must LISTEN to that person. And, if they say you have to stop playing, you have to stop playing. Without getting angry. And, if you have a choice between playing with friends or playing by yourself on a game, you should choose playing with your friends.

D: And I know what you can do so you can listen – you can DIE on the game!

Me: Yes – sometimes people choose to lose on purpose – and that’s OK.

D: Yeah, so you don’t do it by accident… You DO lose points though.

[We’re now trialling a week without monster games, following a spate of nightmares about monster creatures and broken nights]
