I’m the mother of a 9-year-old boy who’s completely hooked on this new Pokemon Go thing. My son has always been a digital nerd, but his obsession with this game is unbelievable. I can’t see what all the fuss is about, myself. In fact, when I first heard it talked about I thought it was called ‘Poke Your Mum’ and that he’d be following me around poking me with his grubby little fingers or something.
Now he’s out and about all day, charging around, staring at his phone playing this game, completely oblivious of his surroundings. Should I be worried?
Poke Your Mum
Dear Poke Your Mum
Yes, you should be. There were already way too many annoying people walking around not looking where they were going. Now they’ll be doing it in even larger numbers.
The only consolation for the rest of us will be the delight of watching them walking into trees and rivers and stepping in dog shit.
Hope this helps.
With kind regards,
