Letting the Kids Skip School to Play Games


School is very important and when I was a kid I had perfect attendance most years. I have evidence of this feat in the form of little blue certificates of merit that were handed out at the end of the school year.

My kids will not be getting one of those certificates this year because I let them skip a day of school last week just to play a new game all day.

Dodge is 100 years old. In fact, it’s actually 100 years old on this very day, as I’m writing this post. It was November 14, 1914 that the Dodge brothers built their very first car. This is a pretty big milestone and to celebrate, Dodge threw one heck of a party.

This is a bad, bad, sedan and it's so much fun, you won't even miss that two-seater.

There are a lot of milestones in a child’s life like getting that first tooth and learning to walk, but the one that scares a lot of parents is the day their teenager gets a driver’s license. It’s a rite of passage for teens, but how do we make sure our kids are safe once they drive away?
