THE 3 BEST WAYS TO PLAY HOOKYWITH YOUR CHILD

When Gary Chapman’s book “The Five Love Languages” came out, many people focused on building better relationships with their spouses. But just as words of affirmation, acts of service, touch, gifts, and quality time can help your marriage, these concepts can also help your relationship with your children. One way to show our children how much we love them is to spend quality time with them. And what better way to do that than to break them out of school to play some hooky?

THE ZOO The zoo is a great place to educate your child outside of school. They can play hooky and still learn something. Many exhibits will provide information about the animals, their habitats, and conservation efforts. At the very least, your child might encounter an animal they’ve never heard of before. FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT CENTER While classics like Skee-Ball and Pop-A-Shot may be harder to find, there are still plenty of exciting activities for you and your child to participate in. Hit up the arcade, peel out in the go-karts, or test out your putt-putt game over 18 holes. There’s an activity for all ages at these fun zones, so you and your child will always have something to choose from. Families often get so wrapped up in the activities of daily life and the chaos that accompanies it that fun is forgotten. What if kids were able to detach from the expectations of accomplishment placed on them in school and extracurricular activities and just focus on having a blast one day with Mom and Dad? Who knows — maybe by playing some hooky with your child, you’ll find the kid in you! hips were out of alignment and she suffered complications during pregnancy.

After The Button Law Firm got involved, though, a lawsuit was filed in order to get full value for all the damages caused to the client. Depositions were taken to finally get the drunk driver to admit that he was at fault and should be held responsible. The woman was fully supported and empowered through the firm with days of witness preparation, and as a result, she was a superstar who stood up to the defense. In the end, the case was resolved for over 10 times the initial offer. The drunk driver’s insurance company learned that drunk drivers should not be rewarded for their conduct in Dallas County, Texas. The Button Law Firm knows that drunk drivers are out on the roads, and we make it a constant mission to hold them accountable for their actions. The criminal justice system serves its purpose, but it leaves the victims without any financial help for the damages they have to live with the rest of their lives. That is where we can help you.

A DRUNK DRIVER’S CHOICE

A few years ago, a woman was involved in a pretty bad accident. She had been riding in the passenger seat when her car was hit by a drunk driver. Not only did the other driver run a red light, but afterward, he tried to switch seats with his girlfriend in the passenger seat. It was later discovered that his BAC was at .262, which is more than three times the legal limit.

To make matters worse, the victim was pregnant. Fearing that something may have happened, she rushed to the emergency room that night. She was fine; however, the doctor recommended she visit a chiropractor for several appointments to ensure everything was in perfect working order.
