Welcome to MineMum
Minecraft help for desperate parents

About Me

Hello, I'm Bec!

I'm a writer who lives in Australia with my Minecraft-playing family. MineMum started out as a few articles on my autism parenting website Snagglebox, but I was getting a ton of emails and questions every week from frustrated parents looking for help. It quickly became apparent that it deserved its own space, so here we are!

MineMum is a site for families who are new to Minecraft, have a ton of questions and would like to get answers from another parent. It's also for people who want to understand what their kids are talking about, need ideas for Minecraft-themed parties and activities, or want to use the game for learning.

I love the game and enjoy being helpful, so this site is a really fun combination of those things for me. So I hope you find what you're looking for - feel free to contact me with questions or suggestions or just to say hey! You can also find me hanging out on the MineMum Facebook page and Twitter @becoakley.

Oh and I don't go by the username of MineMum in Minecraft or on any forums... so if you run into those people, they're not me (but say hello anyway).
