Do you prefer your entertainment to be all-encompassing? Or do you prefer it to stimulate your own creativity? I ask this because I have noticed a trend with my daughter. Some of her video games envelop her completely. She is fully engrossed and absorbed in that game, and wants nothing to do with the world around her. She gets so involved that she forgets to eat or pee. It's kinda extreme, honestly. But, hey, she's 3. I have recently come to the realization that I should limit her exposure to things that are so all-encompassing. It's no fun to tear her away, but it's unhealthy to leave her in another world and allow her body to rot. Other video games, TV shows, and films encourage her to think creatively. She acts them out and wants to engage with her surroundings after watching them. Video games that fit this category include old-school Zelda. Children's programming that fit this category are Wild Kratts and Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. Films that fit this category seem to be older and live-action, including The Neverending Story and Swiss Family Robinson. It got me thinking... what kind of entertainment do you prefer? Do you want to be dragged fully into a world? Or do you want to be challenged to view your existing world in a new light? Maybe some of both? What entertainment options have you found to fit your interests? Share, explore, analyze your habits... or ramble incoherently. It's all good.
