Video: How to outsmart your child, the old-fashioned way

All I have heard discussed on the radio and TV this morning is the unfortunate Josh Hamilton injury and the inevitable should-he-or-shouldn’t-he have gone home. Yes, it’s a worthy debate…for about five minutes; but then let’s move on.

Rather than pile on, I’ll take this opportunity to post some random entertainment while we await Devon’s sure-to-be-badass NBA Playoffs Preview (to be posted later today).

Here is the first bit of random entertainment, a funny video teaching all of the parents out there how to outsmart their children…the old-fashioned way.
