comment How much time is too much time playing educational computer games?
I have no idea whether Minecraft is or is not more effective in the abstract. My issue is that the kid interact with actual objects and/or people rather than with the screen. They will have plenty of time behind the screen when they are adults and work for a living.

@WilliamGrobman I completely agree. Parenting is like sports, you get lots of attempts and you don't have to succeed on every attempt to be successful overall.
