For many fathers, raising a child in the 21st century is not an easy task. Suggesting recreational activities that may have appealed to you as a child (monster truck racing/fishing/playing catch), might be met with eye rolling, a loud sigh, or even a temper tantrum.
Lucky for you, we’ve developed the My-Life-Sux-O-Meter. This patented device can be attached to your son in order to measure his excitement levels. So instead of having a conversation like this:
“Hey son would you like to go fishing?”
“You don’t fucking understand me at all dad!”
You can simply attach the device to your son and say the word “fishing.” From here you should be able to get an accurate excitement level reading, and you’ll be able to determine if the activity selected will appeal to your son. The higher meter levels are a good indication that your son will look forward to the suggested activity.
Let’s take a look at some examples:
Ski Trip With The Family
Go Carting With Uncle Roy
Go to the beach
Head to Macy’s for the eyeliner sale
Shopping at Hot Topic
Not convinced? Take a look at this testimony from Brad McCarthy.
Before we ordered the My-Life-Sux-O-Meter I was at a serious dead end with my son, but now things are really starting to look up. Just yesterday I brought home the new Fall Out Boy CD for my boy and he said I was “pretty chill.” Next month I’m taking him to get a signed Twilight DvD, we’re very excited!
