Learning how to tie shoelaces is just one way you can give your kid an edge over his Velcro-dependent playmates.
It's important to help your kid prepare for a career, ideally through fun, inspiring, roleplaying toys. And given the way things are going in our globalized economy, you'd be smart to help him train for a job that can't be outsourced. Jobs like house cleaner, crossing guard, or road construction stop sign holding guy. Just try to send those jobs to China, amirite?
