"No boys allowed or they will be goofballs"
While learning how to complete an assignment they'd rather not complete is very important, so is their time to explore whatever they want. We try to minimize the electronics available to our children so they'll entertain themselves in more old-fashioned ways rather than expecting a machine to do the entertaining for them. I love listening to the imaginary games they come up with, including a cafe (complete with homemade menus), campfires ("NO real fires!"), ant farms in the driveway, and elaborate art projects.
