Yesterday after spending 3 hours with 11 eight year old boys, my patience was beginning to unravel ( coaching sons soccer team) We were giving a boy on the team a ride home,on the way home my kids and I were given a blow by blow description of the new grand theft auto video game, when I told the kid we didn't play that at our house he moved on to describing the south park episode he watched at one in the morning. So to get on with the story, we had to stop at the store and I told the kid his shoes were untied, he said " I don't know how to tie"
WTF this kid is up till all hours of the night playing and watching things that are highly innapropriate but he doesn't know how to tie his shoes. I wanted to take his mom and shake her. Needless to say I know where my son won't be spending the night.

|Sounds like a wise call. I know if I ever have kids I'll be pretty careful what I let them play and watch. I won't let the computer or TV be a babysitter. I'd much rather play games with them anyway. Thanks heavens for things like the Wii.
To be fair, I didn't really know how to tie my shoes 'til I was probably 12 or so. Just didn't see the point considering the awesomeness of velcro. :D
