In order for the boys to not feel left out, Web Watch suggests the following event:
KEEP YOUR SON AT HOME DAY
Teach your son the pleasures and values of keeping house! Invite your son, age 8 – 14, to stay at home from school April 28.
- Have him assist in the housework. This provides him with more exercise than the physical education he would experience at school!
- Show him the secrets to effective shopping. Take him on the grand tour of the supermarket and the shopping mall. Teach him how to clip and sort coupons, and the excitement of scanning the newspaper circulars for grocery bargains!
- Instruct him on how to cook a gourmet dinner. He will learn about good nutrition, and he’ll be well rewarded for having dinner ready when the women come home!
- And, of course, there’s the soap opera break!
