Controversy About “Fun”

I saw this today and it really hit home.

Although I’m not promoting the corporate sponsor, I think the content and message is thought-provoking enough that I felt compelled to share it.

It’s short – only a few minutes, regarding what the older generation (60-somethings +), my generation (30-somethings – 50-somethings) and then the teen and younger crowd define as what they do (or did) for fun as children.

Please let me know your thoughts if you decide to watch. In some ways, it made me want to cry, because I often hear and see the same thing from my kids and the students (high school aged) I teach in school.

  1. It is sad to me that kids can’t just be kids today and enjoy life without all of the technology. Their is so much that life has to give our children aside from staring at a machine the majority of their childhood and exercising their fingers.
