i did not say i am not aware of it just explains a lot of childrens behavior
may be time for a change while they are still teachable .

Children's behavior is down to parenting ....... a suitable DVD is far much better than some of the gaming that is targeted at kids.

I take a complete interest in my kids TV/DVD/Computer & Gaming activities and so far my 'active' participation has worked.

I would rather my kids relaxed and watched a movie on long journeys than get bored and either irritate each other or me. Believe me there are not any sights along I95 worth seeing.

Are the billboards for "South of the Border" no longer there?

I remember driving down to Florida on I95 when my sister and I were young, and they were probably the only thing that got us through without our father killing us.

The place itself was so underwhelming as to be hilarious.

But seriously, DVD players, iPods and laptops are a godsend not only to kids, but travellers of all ages. I'm fortunate in being able to read in a car, but many people get carsick if they try it.
