Rules we game and teach by.

Be Supportive

    Be open-minded when considering the needs of your session: Encourage kids who are having trouble and congratulate those who are playing well. And, most of all, if you’re having a bad game, don’t take it out on your team!


 Lead by example

    You’ve got to start living the dream before anybody else is willing to do so. It’s all well and good to say you’re on board for the revolution but, if you don’t first make yourself a paragon of model behavior, no one is going to be fooled. Nobody’s asking you to be perfect but we do want you to, whenever possible, strive to uphold the same standards of behavior that you expect everyone else to maintain.


Facilitate imaginative play

    Provide an opportunity for kids to practice and develop their language and social skills while flexing their imaginations. Boost the development of problem-solving and self-regulation skills. Embrace and encourage creativity within each session.


Enjoy yourself, but not at anyone else’s expense

    Games are meant to be fun. So enjoy yourself but not if your fun is affecting other player’s ability to explore. Basically, don’t be a jerk online and respect your fellow gamers. Treat others online the way you want to be treated in real life.


Be the mentor until you must become the student

    It’s great to be a master of your craft but sometimes it’s just as important to be able to take a back seat and adapt to a new game or situation. Allow the kid to take the lead in games helps them build confidence within themselves and can lead to the development of new skills.


Be resolute, not indignant

    While nobody likes being insulted, it pays to take a moment to consider the circumstances; remember that in a competitive game, more often than not, the other player is just venting their frustration. Try not to take it personally: everyone has a breaking point and everyone rages sometimes. At some point, you may find yourself in the other person’s shoes.


Keep it playful, not personal

    It’s good to know a few things you have in common with your player but the focus should be on the gameplay. Things like politics, religion, and other personal issues should remain private out of respect for the parents, kids, and other players. Focus on the goal of the session.
