Solitaire is a Great Babysitter



No, I do not allow a deck of cards to babysit my children, 
BUT...
 I do recommend it for keeping kids occupied for a few minutes while teaching them a thing or two.

Like reading books... 
Card games go way back as a form of education and entertainment.
(And some peace and quiet for Mum)

Solitaire can teach:
Understanding
Strategy
Persistence
Entertainment

I would not recommend teaching Black Jack, 21 or any gambling (for instance: betting pennies like my father did with me) because it could certainly promote bad things, but I do feel that a few card games wouldn't hurt their brain or your schedule or stress level...

It your kids are between the ages of 8 and 11 
teach them solitaire.

In my house it was like magic!
