What is it with Pokemon? All I ever hear about is this cartoon. When I was growing up, the cartoons we watched on television were Bugs Bunny and Scooby Do. Everyone loved these cartoons, but it wasn't an International phenomenon. Parenting can be difficult enough these days, without having to do homework on the latest cartoon craze.
When this first started, I figured it would go the way of the Power Rangers and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But it hasn't gone away. It just keeps getting stronger. All my children ever talk about is Pokemon and what one can do to another. I can't get them to memorize a history text, but they can quote me chapter and verse on the latest gaming strategy. Does anyone else have this problem? Should we parents get together and take a Pokemon 101 course?
Well, I have to go now. My daughter just asked me a question and I need to get my
Pokemon-English Translator to figure out what she said.
I am currently a stay at home father/teacher to two wonderful children. I have also authored two books: The Farm House The Farm House and Building Your Retaining Wall, which are both available through Kindle. I like to cook and experiment with new recipes.I also currently have a blog where I write about everything ranging from weight loss to landscaping and just about everything in between.
