I just read THIS NY Times article and THIS one too. I feel a little queasy. What is life coming to these days? Are we really this pitiful? We're trying to cram so much into our lives that it seems we're actually missing out on everything important. Family dynamic just went down the drain, along with sitting at a dinner table to eat or enjoying a leisurely evening on the front porch during a hot summer's evening. Oh, that's right. We don't even build houses with front porches anymore. What's the need, right? Kids don't need imagination. Give them their leap frog to play with or your smart phone, which I guarantee has a fancy app for that. So, I'm making a few vows, here and now. #1. I will never buy my child a fake cell phone to use as a toy. That's disgusting. #2. Kindle book purchases are on hold until further notice. I WILL support book stores and the feel of real paper in my hands. #3. Less screen time. More face time. It's summer. Bring on the beautiful weather!
Who's with me??!
