My 7 year old has a PlayStation 3.
He saved up his pocket money for weeks and weeks and weeks to help buy it and when it finally arrived he would have punched the air and whooped if he knew that’s what you do when you are THAT excited about a much-wanted gift.
However, I’ve only got to give the merest hint, a tiny suggestion, that we could play a different game together and he’d dropped that controller like a hot potato and is racing to wherever the fun is being promised.
Footy in the garden.
Cricket (even when grandma offers!)
And his big love: rugby.
And if it means my boy keeps that love of playtime for years to come, I’ll happily stand in goal/field/act as a target for snowballs for as long as he wants me to!
