I never thought I’d say this, but thank goodness for portable DVD players. Now the trick is to make headphones a little more comfortable.
I say this as a parent who recently returned from a long vacation with an excitable, lively 8-year-old in the backseat.
For my family, the player has become a big help—although certainly not the final answer to car boredom. If someone comes up with that, I’ll buy it.
