I used to try to stay in touch with my kids through WoW. It's not really the best tool to use for it, though. The game itself intervenes in place of actual relationship-building. Let's face it, you're primarily just playing a game together-- that's not really "staying in touch". And when they get tired of the game, they move on to other activities.There are other, much better tools to staying in touch with people. There's nothing wrong with playing a game with a friend/family member-- but I'm kind of leery of attempts to change WoW to make it something it isn't, and to use it for something it can't do very well. Now when I want to play with my brother and his wife, I log on to our guild's server. If I want to connect with them, I log on to Facebook. I don't really need this game to try to be WoWbook.
