Discovering New Places
By getting out and “wandering” while you hunt, Pokémon GO gives you a new perspective on your own neighborhood–and you find hidden places or things in your area that you may have never known were there (I had no idea there was a community garden just down the street from my house?!).
Discovering these new places with your teen helps build a certain type of bond. A certain since of accomplishment and wonder. I don’t know why, maybe because you’re both amazed that you’ve never come across this certain area in your town before? Either way–it’s something great to take advantage of.
