I take the batteries to the controllers, it's so much better than taking the chords or devices. Pure torture...
Fortunately though, there's a ton of kids on our streets, so I don't have to do that much, he'll go play willingly.
Ahh, I remember those days, 5 is a fun age. Has he run up an incredible bill or hacked something yet? lol
When mine was five, I caught him trying to use a youtube tutorial to hack a free membership from some Disney website.
"No, no, we don't hack website memberships! And we certainly don't do it from youtube tutorials! That is strictly off limits!"
My nephew did something like that. He bought every sonic game in existence. $80, I think it was.
It's instinctive, somehow they're born with a greater tech-skill set than us. I guess it's that they process info quicker than we do. The whole reason I bought the $50 Fire tablet was because they advertised it as having parental settings that rivaled the NSA. lol "Sold!"
I was actually kinda insulted that I'd never thought of that.
So true, not to mention practical. They quickly discard practices that don't tender the desired outcome and try a different method. I still find that remarkable.
That's hysterical. If my kid new the password he be ticked at how simple it is.
Now that's just diabolical! lmao I love it...
Agreed... they have to learn to fail at some point. And when they fail, it will be epic ;)
and to those complaining "they won;t go outside they are glued to the screen" well if you never give them that opportunity they won;t be glued to it and playing outside will come natural
I did most everything on that list by the time i was seven.
We used to jump on our horses. no bridle or saddle, give them a knee sqeeze and let them run. Most of our property was fenced, but.....
They would have had to tie me down to get a helmet on me, for anything. And it would be ditched a soon as i was out of view.
