To be honest when my daughter first got her webkin I was like "Oh great" this will keep her occupied so I can get some work done while at home.... then she found the clubhouse and I was called over to her computer every few minutes max to read her what others were saying and helping her get the idea of the controls. That was when the idea of the watching her computer fly off the deck seemed pretty close to becoming a reality. Now she is incredible on the site.. she is trying harder to learn to read and she can get anywhere through the place in a heartbeat.
I began to appreciate the idea of webkinz when I saw how much structure it adds to her life. She earns her time to play, and is feeling more confident which is reflected in her actions, from hearing nice things from her friends, and getting gifts from people other than her family... She feels valuable to others and loves the attention. Once in a while she would still have melt downs, like fi she invited someone over and we asked her to let the person roam around while she did something at the house...( She was horrified at the thought of someone being able to steal her things) Now she understands.
As I've explained to others we happened to get this account as a gift... someone needed help and we provided it.. they knew how much webkinz entertained our daughter so they gaves us the account.
Well, I wasn't too psyched by it... Now I have almost as much fun as Destiny creating rooms or hunting for theme items.
And We like the fact that there is no way she can talk to someone she shouldn't and accidentally give out personal info... That is great.
When I get home she runs over to me to see the notes from the day... and gifts.
We actually do it as a family. Kristy Destiny and Me. It is the closest we have been in a while. It was too easy to be occupied in the real world.
Now we hunt for rares, exclusives and etc. But I think her favorite part is giving items to peopl ehwo may not expect them. She loves the knowing she had an impact on someone else's life.. and the random notes... Seeing her that excited makes Kristy and I very happy.
It has been explained to Kristy and then to me that the best way to get to a point where collecting the special items happens much faster is by getting into an exchange so we are working on getting into several..
We have plenty of items to trade...
so Someday soon we look forward to seeing you in the GE...
Aww, what a sweet note. I was browsing through the FAQ and it does talk about how Webkinz is not only a great learning experience but also a fun way to develop confidence and motivation. Great note, it kinda cheered me up to!
Thanks for sharing your story! I too have fun with my children especially planning rooms, anticipating our next Webkinz purchase and buying rare's. This website has made WW much more enjoyable. I'm glad I found it.--SB
That is such a great post! I feel the same way about Webkinz. My little sister first got involved with Webkinz when her best friend told her about them. I didn't think about it again, until she started telling me all about the fun she had! Now we earn new webkinz together, send each other packages and our friends packages, share information, and basically just have a good time. We have so much fun playing Webkinz together!
Thank you for such a wonderful post! That is so kind that you love to give gifts, it makes WW, so much nicer and sweeter! And I agee that ww, is a great site to share as a family, and Im glad that your daughter and you both enjoy it...and I hope to see you as a GE soon, I would love to trade with you in the future!
