I have about 12 kids in my neighborhood between the ages of 10-14 who spend most of their time indoors. I rarely see them outside, but when I do, they are all playing football with their phones in one hand. It's just so funny to see someone go out for a pass and miss the ball because they were texting while running.
Sure! My real life best friend and I took a road trip last weekend and did lots of real life things outdoors!! I even made a deal with myself to not go online unless we needed directions. We had tons of fun making memories!
of course there are. it seems a little sad that you feel the need to ask about it. not that you seem sad,just the question itself is kind of a comment on how lonely lots of people are;even with all this technology that's supposed to bring closer together.
I think majority prefer staying holed up in room playing XBox with food is fun. Next time you are at a family/ holiday/ party or social event look around and count the number of people on phones. Can't walk in mall without texting.
its in my blood to be outside. but my cousins grew up computer geeks.. when i grounded them i made them go outside and play. in the last five days.. i have taken 2 hikes.. 2 bike rides.. 2 rounds of golf.. 2 tennis practices and a long walk w a friend. all but one hike with friends. creation just gets inside me and i "live"
btw.. my cousins are making multi-millions having worked on jurassic park/s and now cars etc.. losers
Yes! I love the outdoors. In the woods, there is always something interesting to see. Maybe wildlife, insects, or SOMETHING. Love it. I love the swing, that hangs from a huge oak tree, in my yard. There is always fun to be had, outdoors.
Real life is the way to live. My kids are in scouts so we are always camping. Family get together, thats a football game or kickball game there. I let my kids have their little bit of time on the computer or games, then its outside or playing something different. If life was the way it was..... When you go outside you don't come back in, you drink from the garden hose. When you play you get dirty. When you play a game it was a card game or board game.
