Love this list, not just for boys. We always think of 'dates' as going out but it can be just as special doing simple things at home with just mum or dad and not having to share or help or leave a sibling alone. Brilliant.

"Technology Tickets". Each Sunday give the kids 10 tickets. Each ticket = 30 minutes of t.v., game system, computer, etc. Tickets can be used consecutively, but when they are out they are out for the week. Parents still reserve the right to say "no" even if they have a ticket. LOVE it.
