This thread reminds me that our 12-year-old has been raised without ever playing the following traditional popular family games:
"CLOSE THAT DOOR, you're letting out all the heat!!"
"Who's been messing with the thermostat!?!"
"Today, kids, we learn how to install storm windows!"
"Hey, son, lemme show you how to winterize your car."
"No, you have to let a trickle of water run out or the pipe will freeze and burst."
"I don't care, I'm your mother and you're making me cold, so put your sweater on."
Plus these superhighway favorites:
"Are we there yet?"
"He's looking at me!!!"
"But, honey, we just passed a rest station 10 minutes ago and the next one isn't for another hour."
"I don't care how far we've driven today, so help me if you kids don't behave I'll turn this car around and the vacation will be OVER."
