Saturday morning. I am sitting at the dining room table working my side hustle. My 14-year-old comes down with the crazy dog, lets him out, feeds him, complains about the chores list I gave him, and gets himself some breakfast. He sits down in the family room and turns on the TV. What is he watching? YouTube videos of other people playing video games. I know this is a popular thing with “the kids these days”, but I seriously don’t get it. I think he is watching grown adults playing Sea of Thieves. Why? Why does he enjoy this? I decided to ask him just now. He smiled & chuckled. “Does watching these videos help you play the game better?” “Sometimes,” he replies. “It’s entertaining to watch and sometimes I get tips.” Okay, son. Technically, it’s spring break for him, so I’m in a “Whatever” kind of mood. He’s not getting into trouble, so no biggie, right? Right. “Hey Matt?” I call. “Yes, Mom?” “Go do your chores.” “Got it!” And, he’s off to clean his bathroom, change the sheets on his bed, and clean up after two big dogs. At least he’s off the YouTube. For a little while, anyway!
