Yeah, I can remember telling my mom I was leaving during the summer, she would yell back a time to be home, I would be gone all day. Drinking from a hose when I needed water, walking all over the place with friends, going to the schools to hit up the free summer lunch, playing in the creek, kids now don't do that stuff.

Ah, yes. The obligatory "good old days" post.

Every generation since the beginning of time has thought the subsequent generation has had their childhoods "ruined" and long for the "good old days"

Cultural and generational elitism at its best (or worst?)

I do think there is some validity in regards to his comments, basically in reference to the "always online" lifestyle kids lead today.

All generations before didn't have that...it is unique to the current children's generations and all going forward.

I'd bet it is a statistical fact that less kids play outside today and have a smaller circle of friends within their own neighborhood compared to generations before them.

I'd bet it is a statistical fact that less kids play outside today and have a smaller circle of friends within their own neighborhood compared to generations before them.

But to recognize the negatives without the positives is not intellectually honest. Sure, they're always connected- but as a result, the generation, as a whole, is trending towards greater levels of empathy. Bullying I becoming less of an accepted part of childhood. Kids are actually becoming more introspective and self aware than previous generations as the same age due to the variety of cultures that they are constantly exposed to while always being connected.


Of course, someone will come along and offer anecdotal evidence of the kid they know or some story they read that contradicts this, but that is to be expected.

Kids today are already getting the smartphone/ipad/ipod addiction that most under 50 already have. They write the same way they text, social hermits while in social environments, I can go on and on about how technologically addicted kids are. I'm 28 I don't text and I don't have a smart phone because I don't need to have technology at hand 24/7. It drives me crazy when my friends get that scrolling hand motion going when we hang out. Put down the damn phone.

And yet how many posts do you have on an Internet message board? Don't lament technology's affect on children or what you perceive as others' "addiction" to it while partaking in your own variety of the same thing.

Of course, you will vehemently deny this, claiming how what you participate in is in no way the same as those you criticize. The inability of some to self critique is astounding.

Amen to that! Even today, my kids don't have cell phones of computers or a tablet or play on my phone (I don't even play on my phone). Know what my kids do during the day? They go outside and play or they play with toys and use their imaginations inside. We go to the playground almost every single day.

Technology is a good thing. However, I agree with you that it is ruining kids' lives. I think it is harming them in ways we can't see or measure. We only see this later in life when they become teenagers and adults.

All I know is my five year old kicks my ass at wii, lol...anecdotal? Heck yeah, but it is my job to parent my kids, not,let my ipad or iPhone etc do it....people lament the past, but I must say, my generation has produced some shitty parents who depend on technology to babysit their kids. I honestly think that kids miss out on things today but I guarantee I will do my dampest to make sure it is not my kids. I love technology and I think that the future for our children is unthinkable, but the beauty is that as long as I am bigger, I can pull out the power cord...I think that eatme and cola have valid points
