We’re almost finished with PDS’ annual celebration of ThanksLiving — but hopefully we are just getting started living a life of thankfulness.

By this point in November, I hope you’ve had a chance to see the ThanksLiving wall at PDS. Over the past three weeks, our boys have been looking for ways to practice gratitude every day, writing down what they did on a stick note, and sticking that to a big wall at the school. Three weeks in, the notes have completely filled the first section of the wall and are starting to spill around the corner. We love seeing the wall at the school fill up with sticky notes of how boys have shown thankfulness on a daily basis — and not just to get ready for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Fortnite is a collaborative game where players can compete alone or work as a team via headset, either with people they know first hand or strangers also playing the game. This game can be found on several gaming outlets: Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo, even cellphones.

Fortnite is everywhere you look these days, and because of its accessibility, violence, and addictiveness,it can be a pretty controversial topic—especially when you are asking what its place is in your family. It also opens up the conversation over whether to allow video games in your home at all.

The differing opinions are endless, and we believe it’s a matter of judgment, where there truly is no right or wrong answer if you are carefully considering what’s best for your family. To help you weigh the pros and cons, we reached out to two PDS families and one teacher, all three with different views on gaming in general and Fortnite specifically:
