For years, in my family, we did not have video games. No playstations, no Sega, no nothing! Well my son finally wore me down, plus he got straight A's 2 semesters in a row, so I gave in and bought him a 3ds for his birthday. OMG what a lifesaver on long car rides. No more "I'm bored" no more mind boggling questions like " how do fish poop?" He just pops his little ear buds in and I arrive at our destinations not wanting to down a bottle of red wine.
