So rarely do my roles as father, educator and gamer collide as well as they have this night.
I have been working with my sons all summer long on doing extra reading, math and writing. Yes this is what it is like when you are a teacher's kid.
I know motivation is low for school work, especially in the summer and especially when it comes to writing. But tonight I offered my boys a deal.
For every paragraph they write about their characters they will get 100 XP. If they do a whole page then they get 500 XP. If they can write a good story and tell me something about their character then we consider it "true" , even if that means he gets a new magic item.
We will see how it will go.
