Minecraft – What Parents & Carers Need To Know

What parents need to know about Minecraft

Giving players the freedom to craft entire worlds from an interactive landscape, Minecraft has been described as the ultimate sandbox game (that is, it eschews the usual pre-determined goals or objectives in favour of creativity and exploration). With enthralling gameplay that encourages inventiveness and problem solving, it’s been a runaway critical and commercial success.

Every Eden has its serpents, however – even virtual ones. Minecraft is no exception. Although the game itself is mostly child friendly and conflict free, some hazards persist that could upset younger users, including disruptive rival players, contact from strangers and the occasional in-game scare. Our #WakeUpWednesday guide digs a little deeper into Minecraft.National Online Safety

Meet Bob

Meet Bob. Bob is a hedgehog that was found in a bad way.
Fiona, who runs Urchins Hedgehog Care in York, nursed Bob back to full health. Unfortunately, Bob was unable to be returned to where he was found. Without hesitation, we offered Bob a new home in our wonderful grounds and Fiona chose us to adopt him.
