The Daily News reports that Ben Michaels, a 6-year-old who was losing sight in his right eye, was ordered to play "Mario Kart" on his Nintendo DS for two hours a day -- by his doctor. Patching the good eye and using only the bad eye to play his hand-held video game console would exercise his weak ocular muscles, said Ben's doctor. And guess what? Ben's eyesight improved, and the eye healed itself. Who says video games aren't good for kids?!

Moms, would you take this doctorly advice?

I know it sounds crazy but this reminded me of Abraham Lincoln’s: “Everybody likes a compliment.”
