Today, video games like Fortnite provide our kids with a never ending, constantly morping alternate reality. A reality that is way better than doing homework or spending eight hours in a classroom wearing a COVID-19 mask.

The graphics are top-notch and the game developers know what they are doing, they don't let the games get stale and they constantly add new products and venues to freshen the games up for the kids.

5 Bizarre Chores to Keep Your Kids Away from the Video Games Over the Thanksgiving Holiday

So how can we keep our kids away from these video games over the Thanksgiving holiday? It won't be easy but I have a plan and my kids are not going to like it. I've worked with my wife Erica and developed a system that involves family conversation, board games and chores. That's right, not only are we NOT letting our kids play video games but we are going to make them do bizarre chores on top of that. These are 5 bizarre chores to keep your kids away from the video games over the Thanksgiving holiday. 

Big shout out to my wife Erica for helping me develop this system and come up with these odd chores. I'd like to dedicate this article to my children Louis, Chris, Lucas and Vida, buckle up for Thanksgiving 2021, it's not going to look the way you'd hoped. Maybe we will take it easy on you for Christmas? Hey, that can be your present, what do you say?

P.S. If you guys take my suggestions and try these on your kids this holiday, don't blame me. Your kids will be grown-ups one day and I plan on still being in radio at that time. I don't want them keeping a long, negative memory of me. However, I do want to hear how it goes if you try it, so be sure to text the I-95 Rock Mobile App with a Holiday recap.
