My wife and I are cleaning out the den closet of the games we used to play with our children and grandchildren years ago. It was a sad time for me as I realized that most of our favorite games–Trouble, Othello, Kalah, Sorry, Kimbo, Hi-Ho Cherry-O and Monopoly–are games that are no longer enjoyed by children today, who now only punch buttons on computer and video games. We, as parents and grandparents, not only joined in the fun, but taught our children important concepts: there are rules that are to be followed (in life as well as games) and you don’t always win (so try again!). Being together was, and is, very important to mutual understanding and security.
