Lessons from Club Penguin

My six year old son loves Club Penguin. Chances are that you don't know what Club Penguin is. Maybe you do, after a little research (trying to be a responsible parent), this thing is a cash cow for Disney. Millions of people, probably most kids, play Club Penguin.

We have spent hours solving cases, rescuing puffles, and building his igloo. We've had lots of fun exploring. Here is what I have learned and observed from Club Penguin:

  • Creativity and imagination open doors most people never even dreamed existed.
  • Excellence and attention to detail reap great rewards.
  • Six-year-olds are smart.
  • Good decision making skills and problem solving skills will get you a long way in life.
  • Never stop exploring.
  • Spending time with kids helping them do something they love is a great thing.

Waddle on!
