How Technology Has Affected Kids These Days


Advanced technology is rapidly improving these days. All of our daily needs are mostly available on the Internet. From connecting to your friends through social media, buying things you love from e-commerce sites, or getting deals on the group buying sites. Gadgets such as Blackberry and iPad have also been a common thing in a household here in Indonesia.

There has been this chain of message going on in my Facebook feeds and BBM since yesterday:

When I was a kid, I didn’t have a laptop, iPod, Blackberry , PS3 or iPad. I played outside with friends, bruised my knees, made up adventurous fantasies and played hide and seek. I ate what my mom home made food and KFC was a treat. I would think twice before I said “no” to my parents. Life wasn’t hard, it was great and I survived. Kids these days are spoiled. Re-post this if you appreciate the way you were raised. I think we were happier kids :)
Kids these days lost something – Appreciate on

Most of the kids nowadays are playing with their Blackberries, swiping their fingers to play Angry Birds on their iPads, not only they lost what we got by playing around in our backyards, socializing in real life instead in front of a screen, what is most frightening is that most parents didn’t really control what contents that their kids are seeing every day.

I think that if we can manage to use this technology to parents advantage, and make them learn something new, also dividing a great deal of time between playing with technology and without it, it wouldn’t be a problem. What do you think?
