Parent Pill: Have you a Zap for Apps?

(Continued)

I, for one, am going to continue the good fight, assuming that between those bouts of DoodleJump and Ruberth, they are hearing, absorbing and even applying some of the things we are teaching so they will be better prepared when they go off to discover their adult selves. From another great Dr. Seuss book (from which I will not veer from the original):

You have brains in your head.

You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself

any direction you choose.

You’ll look up and down the streets. Look ’em over with care.

About some you will say, “I don’t choose to go there.”

With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet,

you’re too smart to go down any not-so-good street.

At least not without your iPhone.
