"The Minecraft Guide for Parents" is a guide intended for parents and other family members, caregivers, mentors, and educators, and anyone else who has children or youth in their lives who have been swept up in the Minecraft phenomena. Breaking down the information into small, accessible and easy to understand sections, the handy guide allows parents to assist their children with the logistics of game set up and play, while at the same time addressing their bigger questions. This comprehensive guide not only explains, step by step, with screenshots, how to install and set up the game, but also the game play itself, so that even parents with minimum computer literacy are able to step in and help their children, or even play alongside them. Moving beyond the basics, the guide explores larger questions such as online safety, be it playing in multiplayer worlds, or accessing and posting on YouTube. It examines the social and academic advantages to be found in Minecraft, and offers realistic solutions to challenges such as time management and conflicts over computer use. With a simple, friendly and open style, "The Minecraft Guide for Parents "aims to be inviting and accessible to all, regardless of computer or gaming skills. Written by a self-confessed gamer parent who is also an educator, it speaks to parents from one who has been there, is still in the thick of it, and is always learning. Real-life examples run throughout the book, not just of the practical aspects, but the challenges faced and the benefits reaped, including observations and points from those most closely involved - kids and teens that are playing the game. Parents can find reassurance, practical help and new ways to connect with their children in addition to all the basic information they are seeking about this exciting and creative game.
