Too wet to go out
Next time you hear this classic complaint from your kids, just toss them a copy of The Cat in the Hat. Go ahead, toss it—the Cat would. Maybe, just maybe, it will give them some ideas on how to amuse themselves.

Then Sally and I
Here's a chance to get serious with your kids for a minute. Making sure doors are locked is a good place to start. We don't want to be a drag, but the idea of somebody coming in uninvited could and should be a little scary. A real talk about how to deal with being alone might not be a bad idea.

"Now look what you did!"
The fish will do anything in his power to protect the house. And you know what? His constant protests are kind of comforting. As much as we adore fun, watching the house get destroyed is still a little uncomfortable. Plus, we like to see the fish standing up for what he believes in.
