You know, if I was a parent, it would be at this point that I’d rip the game from his hands, stash it in my backpack, and force him to enjoy history goddamnit. This vacation cost a lot and the game is only for the hotel and travel time.
imagine trying to force someone to think that stonehenge is fun
But Stone Henge is kinda boring as shit? Like, it’s really interesting at first but then it comes down to “We have no idea why it’s a thing here’s 20 theories that possibly explain it” and at that age I know I wasn’t interested in that kind of thing. I know, I remember being dragged round historical sites as a kid and had no gameboy to occupy me (I started playing with the grass ‘cus god damn)
You can’t force a little kid to enjoy history. In fact, you can’t force anyone to - sure, you can try to spark interest and all, but if they’re not interested, they’re not interested. Chances are, by taking away that Game Boy of his you’re just going to put him off even further from any interest he had in history. Good job~
I think only English people can really appreciate Stonehenge.
I mean, who WOULDN’T find the world’s first set of cricket stumps absolutely fascinating?
