Jason offers these tips for surviving long car rides:
– Travel heavy – pack lots of toys and entertainment
– Make frequent stops
– Try to avoid traffic
– Go at a time when they may be able to sleep
In SuperCharge, we introduce a Snack/activity tray for the car This is perfect for allowing the kids to do thing and eat while you are driving. We then dive into a Dad’s Debate by discussing whether public schools should have school uniforms. Alan begins against it but later begins to understand some of the points Jason brings up and “almost” agrees. We read an email from Morgan in Alberta, Canada for the Mailbag segment. He has a little difficulty being affectionate toward his 8 year old son. We basically tell him to get over it and do it anyway. Your son needs it and so do you. For Dad’s homework, we suggest going on a one on one date with your child. If you have more than one child, schedule individual dates with each one. Doing someone fun and give them your full attention. We close out the episode with a Quote of the Day: “My children’s laughter is my favorite sound! The sound of their deep breathing when I know they’re asleep is a close second.”
