'Children growing up now have never known a time without the internet.'

Guess that makes me an old geezer =/ Also while we're at it, go play outside!

Don't worry. It's only preparation for them to be ready to stare at a computer monitor in a cubical for 10-12 hours a day, five days a week. Just like Chuck E Cheese got kids ready for vegas. Its all training.

Maybe I should've worded that different......

Not my kids. During the week it's school work and then go outside. They can play Xbox and tablets over the weekend.

You sound like an absolute blast mate.

If I had kids they wouldn't be playing on the playstation.

I'm on there, the kids can go outside!

Go out side.. to do what?!

Use their imagination to make up some game or any number of other things depending on their location.

Everyone should go outside and have fun - not just kids - everyone.

People love to say that ... but to do what ? What if beyond exercising a bit for your health , there isnt much to do in your area , and what if it's even some unsavory places ?

around here outside equals = junkies , hobos , mugging , gangs , getting run over by cars , and very few places around to hang and play safely ...

Not going to send kids alone out there , after school and dark , because it's "not good to stare at screens" all day

Find your nearest park or nature reserve and take a walk
