A quick guide to Minecraft for parents

Well, I’ve certainly learnt a lot about Minecraft since lockdown began. I haven’t played it, but the kiddies love playing it and talking about it too. Last week Minecraft updated and they were both so so excited about it that they almost exploded. I had lots of animated sentences such as “Look Mummy, it’s got new Crying Obsideon“. I had to respond with excitement, but had no idea what it meant. So this is a little Minecraft for parents guide, which will help you to understand what they are talking about. Obviously we are encouraging both offline play to balance out their fun too!
