Pi-a-Day: Extra Curricular Gamer

This is Pi Day #068.d – March 06

I raised my intelligence using my cranium.

Leave it to me to turn a beautiful gaming moment into a teachable moment.

As parents it tends to be our jobs to empower our kids to make good decisions. If these decisions intersect with legitimate interests, then there is a powerful opportunity to create a life-lesson synergy that could lead to enhanced productivity and opportunities for personal development… or I just ruined YouTube for her, one of the two.

Comic: Commercial Success

This is Pi Day #061

As if by some kind of ironic happenstance, when I wandered to where I keep my laptop so that I could write this very explanation about the origins of this gag and why I thought this comic is funny (a thing that definitely makes it funnier, right?) the Kid was using my computer… to watch YouTube… and she a was just sitting there glassily staring at an advertisement for one of those “build your NEXT website with” insert-companyname-here.

So… life-imitates-art funny? You-had-to-be-there funny? Kid-logic-is-messed-up funny?

I mean, we have rules and time-limits about device use in our house, and if she chooses to spend her allotted time watching ads –and apparently she does — what can I do, really? I mean, draw a comic about it, obviously. And maybe some parenting. Yeah, probably some parenting.
