|Those weekends are precious to us fathers. We have so many things to do. Rake the yard, clean out the gutters, get the Christmas lights up and then down, burn the leaves, cut down some old tree…gasp, pant gasp…oh yeah.. and fix the lawn mower to boot.|
After the weekend is finished we are just plain tired, exhausted and spent.
A little reflection in front of the fire place, or watching the foot ball game we realize that Jonny, Lisa and their friends were having a blast playing in the tree house, pretending there were dragons in the leaf piles and the fire pit.
The realization comes, “How many weekends am I going to spend ignoring my son and daughter? Isn’t there something I can do to make us really be a family; one that works together, that plays together?”
Most of us bond by providing things for our kids. But that really is not a bonding experience, but more a give them what they want experience.
The object of having children is to have them be well rounded contributors to civilization. We want our children to be intelligent problem solvers. Ones that won’t balk in the face of challenge, that will eat up problems for breakfast, and talk about solutions over lunch and have the answer by dinner.
How can we as parents get them to that point and not spend exorbitant sums of money?
How can we teach them problem solving skills at home in the following areas:
- Internal Combustion Engines
- Project Management
- Sewing and Upholstery
- Metal Fabrication Techniques
- Wood Working
- Electrical Circuits
Answer: Home-made Go Kart
Everybody’s eyes light up when the name “go cart” is mentioned. There is just something exciting about gokarts. It must be the freedom, or the exhilaration when driving it, either way your heart starts pumping, your palms start sweating, and the whole idea becomes captivating.
The hidden benefits of the go kart is that it makes an instant bond to kids and parents.
The trouble is that most of us know nothing about go karts. The amount we know and we are undone by how much we don’t know.
For example, how would I go about setting up a drive system for a go kart that weighs 400 pounds with people in it, and matching it up to a 5 horsepower motor?
-What clutch would I use?
-What kind of steering system should I use?
-How do you set up the go kart so that it steers well and doesn’t just go straight?
-How do I build a go kart for under $200?
These questions and more keep popping up, and that go kart idea seems to just fade in the distance…..
But that shouldn’t be!
