even if I am working I will stop what I am doing for them, because in the end that is what they will remember!!!! Not the 2 million $ home and video
That is not the typical American I know. I don't know anyone that has a two million dollar home. I guess you could call me and my friends and family
I also haven't bought a video game for myself in a long while. I have bought my daughter a few. The games I have bought her have made her hand eye
coordination go way up. She does well catching and hitting a ball when we practice baseball in the yard. The games have helped her with logic as well
as reading quickly. She has always read well, but now she reads fast well. Don't dismiss the benefits of video games. Just use them in moderation, you
have to get out and enjoy the outdoors as well.

• "Baby momma and baby daddy" culture is widespread. Teen marriage out of wedlock is the norm, but no one is advocating marriage and family.
That is not true, I know of some programs in my little town that teach abstinence preferably until marriage, safe sex if you can't wait, and the
importance of a strong two parent family. My wife works at one of the places that has this as a program.
I feel like a typical American. I work forty hours a week. My wife takes my daughter to school in the morning, and I pick up my daughter from the
After School program in the afternoon. She likes for me to pick her up late because she gets to finish her homework and then gets to play with the
We usually have an errand to run, then we go home. I check her homework, if somethings wrong I help her to correct it. So far, she is a straight A
student and loves school.
My wife then comes home from work and we all talk about our day. We prepare supper or buy it from somewhere, then sit down to eat. Sometimes we eat at
the table, then there are times we want to decompress buy watching TV while we eat. There is no set pattern.
After supper we start the whole clean up the dishes, room, and ourselves. We start settling in for the night, maybe read a book, then go to sleep.
Wake up and start all over again. The weekend is when it really gets going. We try to do something fun on Saturday. Go to a museum, lake, river,
shopping, geocaching, SCUBA Diving, or just fly a kite. Sunday we go to a little Baptist church, go home, have a Sunday dinner, play, go back to
church, come home, then get ready for bed again.
To me that is a typical American from where I'm from. I know that was a long post and I thank you for reading it till the end.
