The Philosophy of Motherhood: Play


My son recently discovered a game called Monument Valley on his tablet. It’s way above his skill level but he loves it and he loves for me to help him play (e.g. do it for him). It’s a logic/puzzle game with a sort of surrealist geometry: think of that painting with the staircases going every which way.

Do you ever use your kids’ tablets (if they have them) or help them play their games? Do they ever suck you in? I also really like this game where a panda bear runs a restaurant. It’s so much fun to solve the simple puzzles and feel like you’re doing well at something, even if it’s super easy.

I highly recommend it.
