Kids And Cars: How Do You Do It?

CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.

I don’t remember when the little Nintendo worked its way into our family dynamic, but I shudder to think of how long we could have lasted with the alphabet game, our box set of The Hobbit on tape, and continually munching cheesy popcorn closed and re-closed with those big plastic clips.

How do you, you parents, keep your kids from going insane in the stifling confines of an automobile?
