Jacob Cordeiro has been playing Minecraft since the Alpha pre-release. Jacob attends Stanford Online High School and won an award in the 2011 Scholastic Art and Writing competition for his game entry.
There's no reason you can't play Minecraft with your child, either watching what he or she does, or playing in multiplayer mode alongside your child. You can even work as a team!
If you're concerned about who your child is playing with, you can limit his or her play to single mode, where he or she plays alone. You can also join a server where you know all the players, or create your own server and invite only people you know to play with your child.
Minecraft isn't just about stacking and unstacking blocks. Encourage your kids to build something learned in school, like a Scottish castle or an Egyptian pyramid. Or create an entire world from their imagination.
If you don't want your child fighting off creepers and other monsters, you can set Minecraft to peaceful mode.
Want to expose your child to another language? Set Minecraft to a foreign language - like German, French, or Japanese!
Many Minecrafters learn useful skills that can lead to future jobs. How about programming to create mods for Minecraft? Or discovering the intricacies of architecture to build houses? Or engineering to hookup an electric lamp or rig a door to open as you approach it?
The game itself doesn't cost much - you can even have your child pay for it through allowance - but because of the simple graphics, you don't need a super expensive computer to run it on either.
There is an infinite number of worlds to explore. Have you explored all you wanted in one world? Find or create another world to explore.
In Minecraft, you have to learn how to build things - something as simple as a shelter to something as complicated as an entire village. Your child has to learn how to gather the materials and manage the inventory to complete the challenges.
Do you have fond memories of playing Legos, building elaborate buildings and landscapes, then breaking it all down and starting over? Minecraft is, on its face, a 21st century version of Legos.
