"Last time I dragged by mistake my 12-years old and her friend to an attraction way too young for them, I realized that they didn’t care. They were together in the outside world, commenting on everything, an attraction in itself.
I’ve also noticed that kids tend to forget adults are there when they’re chatting with their friends. You get to see different aspects of their personality not otherwise revealed at home. Which in my books is quite a bonus!”
Arcades offer a very noisy kind of fun, with all the games cramped in a small space, but kids love it so bite the bullet! Best practice in an arcade: allow a pre-determined budget, explain to them how the games work, let go. Those who are the first to run through their money can still enjoy watching the others play. (Please note that we'll be adding family outings to this section until the end of 2012.)
