Among parents of young clients with intense interests in computer games, I find a parent who is able to turn her 8 year old with gaming addictive behavior into an autonomous learner by channeling his passion to magic power of authentic learning. I suggest her to tell all the stories about such transformative processes in her son. I am pleased that she seems to be buying in my idea. I guess there are parents around the world looking for these special experiences. Let’s wait and share her stories soon.
