What parents need to know about Minecraft

Minecraft is still as popular today as it was when it was first released. The highly addictive block building game has developed a huge following and has millions of monthly active users playing it worldwide across PC, console and mobile platforms.

It is a great way for children to develop their problem-solving skills and can also help to stimulate their imagination and creativity. The game itself is relatively safe generally speaking, however, as per any game, it pays to be mindful about the main features that children may encounter. That’s why this #WakeUpWednesday we’ve created this useful guide to help parents and carers understand exactly what Minecraft is all about.

Created by gaming expert Mark Foster, this guide explores the main features of Minecraft that parents and carers should be aware of, from potential contact with strangers to the risk of ‘griefing’. As always, the guide will also provide a number of useful tips for parents and carers to consider around providing a safer gaming experience for their children.
