I’m a 70’s kid. And I’m sorry.

I see a lot of those on Facebook, and I agree with you – I too am very grateful.

At the same time, I wonder how these make kids feel. I don’t feel that they had a choice in how their lifestyle is affected by technology and social media. It’s like us and video game, isn’t it? Now that we are adults, they give it to us, get us addicted, and tell us we are wasting our life on it and that our lives are incomplete because of it.

I feel that there are many kids out there who were raised on tablets and social media.  And once they are 2 years old, they demand these gadgets that they were caused to get hooked on, and the parents call it kids “choosing” it as pastime.

 

We need to send a different message.  Sorry, the young generation, that we didn’t steer you away from it the same way our parents steered us away from drugs and video games.  Sorry that you are currently not choosing to play outside because you were never given an opportunity to love the outside, the nature, the getting dirty, and getting hurt.

“How can we make it up to this generation,” not “Sucks to be you!”  That’s what we need to post in memes.
