Over the last two years, my 12-year-old son has become increasingly consumed with going to the woods near our home.
But just like many other tweens, he's also asked, "Can you get me a cellphone?"
We bought him a pocket knife.
He mostly keeps the knife in his pocket when he heads outdoors, only bringing it out when a project calls for a sharp object.
As for the pocket knife, when it's not in use or at the bottom of his camo pants pocket, it stays safely displayed in his bedroom, a token of independence and ingenuity.

CNN —Tiger Woods’ 15-year-old son, Charlie Woods, will compete in a pre-qualifier event Thursday in hopes of making the field for his first PGA Tour start next week.
To qualify for the PGA Tour’s Cognizant Classic, Charlie would need to advance from the pre-qualifier and then again from the event’s qualifier Monday.
The PGA Tour said just four qualifiers will advance from Monday’s event into the Cognizant Classic field.
Aside from winning a state championship, Woods and his legendary father have played together at the PGA Tour’s annual PNC Championship tournament.
“I am proud of whatever direction he chooses.”CNN has reached out to Tiger Woods for comment.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tiger Woods returned to the PGA Tour and lasted only 24 holes, withdrawing Friday at the Genesis Invitational after hitting his tee shot on the seventh hole.
PGA Tour rules official Mark Dusbabek said on the telecast that Woods had an illness, and that it was not related to his ankle or back.
Wood was 1-over par for the round and projected just outside the cut when he asked for a cart and was driven off the course by a rules official.
Woods had not played an official event since the Masters last April, withdrawing in the middle of the third round of the rain-delayed major.
Woods had said he hoped to play one tournament a month through the major season.

I was 15 years old when I heard about the singer Taylor Swift for the first time.
Additionally, I had just moved back to Ohio to live with my dad, so I was the new kid at school, with the name Taylor Swift.
To make them feel less weird about it, I pause, grab the microphone, and say, "Yes, my name is Taylor Swift.
Please feel free to make jokes, I'll just shake it off, later," a Taylor Swift reference.
For example, just this past weekend, I booked a dinner reservation for two under the name Taylor Swift.

CNN —Tiger Woods has withdrawn from The Genesis Invitational in the second round due to illness, the PGA Tour announced Friday.

He returned to the tournament scene for The Genesis Invitational, an event he hosts in Southern California.
Woods acknowledged he was dealing with back spasms for the final three holes of his opening round on Thursday.
The Genesis Invitational continues through Sunday.

The radio tower peeking out over dense woods and poultry farms had an AM signal just strong enough to serve WJLX’s intended audience: the people in and around Jasper, Ala., who wanted to hear the Jasper Vikings’ Friday night high school football broadcasts and news of the burger specials at Alabama Stackers on 19th Street.
Then, “The Sound of Walker County,” as the station has long billed itself, went silent.
The tower, all 190 feet of it, had vanished — its 3,500 pounds of spindly steel beams possibly sliced into pieces and dragged away earlier this month by thieves, the police said.
“Who in the world steals a radio tower?” said Brett Elmore, the station manager, recalling his bewildered reaction when a maintenance worker explained to him why the station he often calls “my life” had been knocked off the air.

Woods said his back began to spasm over the final few holes in the Genesis Invitational at Riviera.
The shot called for the same club he had just shanked — 8-iron — for a low punch between the trees.
“I had a small window there and tried to hit a punch-hook 8-iron after I just shanked an 8-iron," he said.
Woods managed five birdies on a pristine day at Riviera, with mostly sunshine and a strong breeze late in the afternoon.
A shank is rare, especially for Woods, but it has been a while since he mentioned back spasms.
