I found out my 8 year old son quit his job – which was a little disconcerting, especially since I didn’t know he had one. Apparently he’d been a pizza delivery boy, and also held a job delivering the ingredients from the manufacturer. I don’t believe in quiting, but since he’s 8 and it’s a virtual world (Roblox.com – think legos meets Second LIfe), I wasn’t too worried.
But I was amazed how he quickly jumped on the earning band wagon. Imagine, 8, and he was delivery lego type pizza to lego type Avatars. What did he do with all his earnings – why he bought a lego house in this virtual world.
