My son beat his first Switch game

Today we experienced a somewhat significant event: my son beat his very first Nintendo Switch game.  It was Splatoon 3, which he got for Christmas.  He's been playing it since then and just this morning he finally beat the final boss for the first time.

I've never played the game, so I have no idea how difficult it actually is.  However, several times I've seen my son get frustrated and upset because he was having trouble with it.  So it's a life-lesson - a small one, but a lesson nonetheless.  He struggled, he stuck with it, and eventually persevered.  Games can be very useful for that sort of thing.

My son was very happy to finally beat the game.  He called me in to watch the end and called his grandmother afterward to tell her about it.  It was really nice to see him to excited and to be there with him to share this small triumph.  Call it one of the joys of parenthood.
