What Boys Learn from Their Dads

Fathers are different from mothers. They look different, they sound different, they play in a different way, and they usually have a different approach to raising children than a mother does.

If you feel cramps in your abdomen (the area around your stomach), don't panic right away.

Match Game

Match Game

Match Game is based upon the old television game show of the same name. You can play it at least two different ways. My sisters and I used to play our own home version all the time. We just got pens and pieces of paper and made up our own questions.

You have to divide into two or more teams of an equal number of people. Each team has a captain. You'll also need one leader to ask the questions. This person will be a neutral party like a game show emcee. He or she is not part of either team.
