I tend to use random metaphors to explain things to my son.
For instance, recently I related Monster Jam, which will be coming to the Rose Quarter next weekend, to bullying.
My son had an experience of some borderline bullying at school. He came home very upset so we sat down to talk about it.
It’s right about now that you are wondering what in the world this has to do with the Monster Jam coming to the Rose Quarter in Portland.
It was actually pretty simple. I told him that the best way to make sure he doesn’t get bullied is to SMASH it altogether! Just like GRAVE DIGGER® does to those cars out there in the middle of the Rose Garden, he can squash bullying by choosing not to do it himself and to stand up to those, in a non-violent way, who do it to others.
This example really hit home with him. I received an email last week from his teacher about a situation in which he told an older boy that he should try to say nice things instead of mean things to his friend. He then encouraged his friend to walk away with him and play somewhere else. Now, my son is only 6 years old. I couldn’t have been more proud of him.
So, thanks to the Rose Quarter and Feld Entertainment we will be heading to the Rose Quarter to see Monster Jam next weekend! He has definitely earned it and I can’t wait to see his face when GRAVE DIGGER® comes out and smashes some cars.
How would you like to join us?!?
Once again, Feld Entertainment and the Rose Quarter have provided me with Four family 4 packs of tickets to the 7:30pm show on Saturday, February 11th to giveaway!
Not familiar with the show? Well, at Monster Jam you’ll be able to watch 8 massive trucks that will be creating some dirt-flying, car-crushin’ fun. There will also be two trucks that are making their first appearance here in Portland, Tasmanian Devil and King Krunch. Of course GRAVE DIGGER® will also be a part of the festivities, celebrating its 30th Anniversary of car crushing. Finishing up the line-up are Captain USA, El Matador, Obsession, Obsessed and Titan!
By the way did you know that these monster trucks are 12 feet tall and about 12 feet wide?!? Shnikes!
Don’t forget these packs of tickets are for the 7:30pm show on Saturday the 11th of February! If you are unable to make it at that time but would still like to go to the show tickets can be purchased through the Rose Quarter ticket office or from their site.
