If you'd like to lure your kids away from video games, iPods and TV for a while, you could try introducing them to some of the old card and board games. There's a reason these oldies but goodies are still around.

Your youngsters may have trouble with the idea of playing something as tame as a board game when they've got a multitude of electronic gizmos to fill their free time but these games are great ways to stay connected as a family and/or nurture the spirit of friendly competition and fair play. The slower pace also allows for real conversation.
