Things that bug me: Episode 9,347

Back seat video players.
I know.
I know.

I know you don't want to deal with the kids arguing and all that incessant talking.

...and I understand if you're driving to Montreal, or Vancouver...but if you're driving to Granny's house 20 minutes away, can't your kids just look out the window and pay attention to the world that's spinning around them?
I dunno...maybe think about something.
Perhaps use their imagination a bit?

Do they have to be entertained 24/7?
There is some value and merit in learning to just sit with your own thoughts.
Who knows?
A kid might learn to entertain themselves.
Perhaps learn to converse.

God forbid.
