You can avoid playing video games in your house all you want. But once your kid enters kindergarten, forget about it! They suddenly come home talking about Sponge Bob, Ninjas, boogers, butts and video games.
All men seem to have visions of helping our little guy learn his first video game. That will last about five minutes and then your son will take over. Now my husband is regularly schooled by my six year old in the ways of the force.
- A little help here!
- Follow me.
- Dad, you’ve got to go OVER the bridge.
- I know where we need to go.
- Dad! Come on!
- Stop killing me.
Be prepared, oh Padawan. You, too, will be schooled in the force and all things video games when your little man gets his hands on the XBox controller. At least you can still beat the little bugger in a round of basketball.
