Charlie and his friends have discovered the joys of Pokémon Go. Being a good mom, I have joined in the fun. I admit I enjoy walking with the kids at the local park hitting the Poke Stops and gyms.
Charlie has discovered the local speedlimit of 30 mph is perfect for Pokémon hunting in the car. He actually volunteers to go along on errands now!
The time we spend looking for Pokémon is great for talking with Charlie and his friends about what is going at school, Scouts, and in their lives. It gives me a chance to ask questions without being super obvious. The boys are more forthcoming with their words when we are outside and being active.
I’m still missing a Pikachu!
