A Teachable Moment

Aaron showed me his new game, Clash of Clans.

As he was playing, he narrated, “You send in the giants first, because they’re hard to kill. Then you send in the barbarians to finish the job while the bad guys attack your giants.”

I said, “You know what that’s called, kid? You’re sending in your tanks to draw aggro.” I had to hold back the tears of pride, watching my kid naturally develop advanced RTS strategies.

When he needs to learn about obscure American football terms like Buttonhook and Dime Coverage, I’ll be no help whatsoever.
