boy and his bot.
My son is obsessed with robots and programming. It has been well over a year since I could understand what he was learning through coding programs. He dreams of one day creating video games, while building fun robots on the side.
I often marvel at how tech obsessed he is. I almost prevented this love completely, or at least made it a lot less joyful. For the first few years of his life, I was very anti-tech. My kids screen time was extremely limited. I stressed every time they saw an adult looking at their phone. I worried about the internets influence over my sweet impressionable kids.
Then, I discovered radical unschooling, and its philosophy about screens, and technology. Slowly I began allowing my kids more and more exposure to tv, video games, tech toys, and the internet. I watched as my oldest child used these things as a way to answer questions, or pass down-time. She didnt become the screen-obsessed zombie that I feared. My boy immersed himself in gaming life. He watched other people play games online, and played video games on every console he could get his hands on. When he discovered robots and coding, it was as if a whole new world opened up for him.
Learning how robots work, and coding actions on the ipad are his happy place. For Christmas we gave him this build-your-own robot. Im not quite sure how it is built, works, or is given commands. But, I can see that he loves it, and is already learning a lot.
Who knows where this love will take him. Maybe someday his robots will be under another kids Christmas tree. Maybe hell find something completely unrelated to fulfill him. The great thing about this unschooling life is that I get to sit back, enjoy, and trust the process. Watching where his interests take him is worth pushing through all of my earlier fears about screen time.
