Now, hold on a minute. You probably read the title of this post, and immediately started drafting a rant in your head. The last thing kids need is more video games! They need to be outside! Why, when I was their age, I had to be dragged into the house, kicking and screaming the whole way! And if it was raining outside, we made our own video games with cardboard boxes, tape, and markers!

Some days, even when it’s not raining, it’s simply too hot for kids to be outside running around for very long, and if they’re going to stay in the house, you definitely want to keep them occupied or — be honest — they’re going to drive you crazy. But video games don’t have to be vacuous wastes of time, energy, and brain power.
