I just spent 3 days in the NC Mountains with my 12 year old son. He is a joy to travel with. He is willing to help with anything. He can amuse himself outside. I never heard the word 'bored'. Now we are home again and he is in the basement with his older brother(19). They both laugh out loud at funny stuff on TV. Yes it was the first thing he did when we got home, though he never mentioned TV at all while we travelled. Regardless of the what provokes it I enjoy their laughter.

Children are often a nuisance. They can be disappointing people who do little to help themselves and nothing to help you. Given some time and space, as my weekend showed me, they can also be a treasure.
