When Video Games Let You Down

Oldest son is having problems making turns with the car. Although the car is automatic (no messing around with a clutch), there is no power steering, so one must really crank the wheel to get the car to move. The steering wheel is ungainly in his grip, difficult to turn and he is unnerved when it rolls with the wheels.

Amma: (furrows in her forehead deepen) Didn’t you ever play those video games where you have to drive the race car around the race track?

Oldest Son: No. I played the games where you had to crash the car into other cars.

Younger Brother and Sister in the backseat: Yeah! Yeah! You have to crash into someone else and take them off the road so you can win! It’s really fun!

Amma: This is not helping me.
