Default Put the kid's in the dyno room !!!

Dont get me wrong they have the I Pod and PS3 and WII
but it gets shut off at a time and family time is on and fun,
mom at laser tag is really funny and fishing and sports must be a priority !
As you can see the girl is the power monster and dosen't want the Skater sold more than anyone ??? She is 11
Maybe a little hope for the future of powerboating

Wow Thanks, thumper038, In The Pink, Dean Ferry !!

Thank you for promoting something in your kids that is tangible and has smells, feels, vibrations, sights, sounds, and movement and knocks you around a little bit and is not SEX. Promote yearning! It develops thinking and planning and is the ANTIDOTE to "attention deficit disorder". Yes I am in the medical profession.

Thanks. It's funny you say that because I hear from my neighbors all the time "At least YOUR kids are outside playing." but I have to admit, its not easy.

The next generation has no drive or work ethic either. The economy was great during their childhood and parents bought them everything they wanted. Many don't know the value of a dollar and expect things given to them. A large percentage of americans these days have become accustomed to easy money and have gotten lazy and don't remember how to work hard for that extra something they yearn for.

My Dad's words: NO backtalk!

BTW, this is not too much of a hijack, isn't it about the broad reality of falling boat sales?
