What is your favorite educational game for elementary school age children? In my opinion, their are many good games. Due to the fact that many children tend to have a rather short attention span, it is often a good idea to rotate between several games. If a child becomes board with a particular game, put it away for a few weeks (or a few months) and come back to it at a later time. Their are plenty of games to choose from that provide educational benefits.

Let's use this discussion to list out some of our favorites.

What are your favorites?

If your husband is not prepared to listen to how you feel and do something about getting his parents moving then I feel that you will ultimately have to move out again and stay at your parents or find an affordable apartment until he comes to his senses. Your in-laws are freeloading and don't seem to care. You are getting absolutely no respect from them or your husband. Tell him that you are no longer prepared to compromise your married life together. hope things work out for you.

My hubby was a long time learning to cut those apron strings, too. It must be a man thing! The way I see it, you've got to sit down and have a serious talk about your need for privacy as a couple, the benefit of being alone and building your own home and marriage. Tell him you sympathize. BUT, this talk may have to wait until the finances even out alot more! Patience... It might help to think of how hard it would be for hubby to feel caught between his wife and his parents. No one is happy! Typical man strategy is to not deal with it. There's so much pressure on him and on you... get out of the house as much as you can and just deal with each problem individually as if it isn't related to anything else. You sound perceptive and tolerant, and I doubt it will be hard for you to be creative and use your thinker. Good luck!

I love my wife but there is love and there is bleeding a person dry

I'd go for a divorce since your husband is OBVIOUSLY NOT with you in this marriage and considers his parents way more important than you or your feelings. Why waste your life with such a partner. IT'S YOUR LIFE - DON'T WASTE IT!
