Frugal Dad – This site was created for the average family to find financial resources with a conservative slant. By “conservative slant” I’m not referring to politics, rather the “conservative” approach to personal finances. My Basic Philosophy – I hate debt. I don’t like risk. I tolerate credit card companies. I don’t like these financial “gurus” out there giving advice for the sole purpose of selling lousy investments. You know, it could be said that my advice is simply common sense. However, in a country where common sense left the financial world long ago, I felt a calling to remind people of some very basic principles. Spend less than you make; save money for a rainy day; live debt free. I know, I know, earth-shattering ideas here, huh?
The Best InfoGraphics on the WEB – Example;
My kids can’t seem to get enough of their video games. I can take away the Xbox 360’s power cord or tell the kids to go outside and play, but at the end of the day, they simply want to keep on playing. Fortunately, more and more research is coming out that distinguishes healthy, responsible gaming from the excessive, zoned out variety.
Our latest infographic goes over some really great things video games are responsible for. It’s pretty surprising to find that genre to genre, games can do some remarkable things for your brain and body. While I’m not thrilled to find my kids three hours in to a Halo session, I’m certainly relieved to learn that some real good can come out of their gaming.
The other useful thing I took away is that moderation is crucial to healthy gaming. It makes sense. Video games have very real benefits but too much of the same thing, day in, day out, actually ends up hurting you. As a dad, it’s a relief to hear that if I have to, I can still yank the plug and point to the door. Check out the inforgraphic and see what good gaming can do for you.
