are you sure your just "reading" high times
Do you know what your kids are reading? The only High Times Magazine I've seen over the past 10-15 years was confiscated from a 14 year old at a slumber party that one of my kids attended. After reading it, it was used to line the bottom of our bird cages.
As a kid I will say as A kid I was not innocent or nieve, and as an adult parent, I thought I knew about everything when it came to the troubles teenagers face today. In hind sight, now that the kids are grown up, I find that I knew very little. With computers, text messages, new drugs, they've made up a whole new language, a new system, and if you're raising kids today you should know the definitions of schwage, dub, 420, and be really concerned over GHB, (date rape drug) Xtacy, crack, crystal meth, and a whole slew of perscription and designer drugs..we moved to a small town to raise the kids in a drug free environment and found out there is no such thing. If you want to find drugs in this town, go to the high school, the kids have all the drugs. But how do you really get to know your kids?
First, spend time with them and teach them how to really get high. Take them hunting, lead them to music, sports, nature, science, get involved and make it fun. Make a joke about High Times magaize and next thing you know, the conversation is started. You don't have to be drunk or stoned to have fun or be wild and crazy. Look at uncle Ted. You think my idea of doe urine grunting bubbles is stupid? Give it a try with a 12 year old kid sometime and see how much fun you both have and what you can learn from it. You want to know where your scent is going? Watch where the bubbles go. The doe urine mix was to be funny and makes just enough sense that someone might just give it a try. If you got a young person in the blind with you that can't sit still, make the best of it and have fun. Send him out with a grunt bubble maker, a set of rattling antlers and tell him or her to act like 2 monster deer fighting. If you don't fall out of your seat laughing, it just might work. If it doesn't, who cares, you've made a special memory for a lifetime.
You've got a whole slew of hunters here talking about the same old boring ways to beat the wind, with the same old boring answers that hunters have been repeating for hundreds of years now, if you're looking for boring generic answers, just skip over my replies.
