I deeply urge every LARPer to read LüSa Organics‘ Not a Soccer Mom article on her blog. It discusses her experience being a LARP Mom. It’s beautifully written and shows how much joy comes to a family when they find inspiration and a way to play together.
We laughed and discussed how LARPing is a whole new level of motherhood as well. I think as parents we step up expecting music lessons or organized sports, dance class or martial arts. But not this. Not swords and chainmail and role play.
But as parents we go with the flow. We help our kids find what they love; then we stand on the sidelines (or beside them at the battering ram, as the case may be) and wildly cheer them on.
Go forth and read!
