my kids don't own a phone, ipod, ipad....or a computer. their 10 (soon to be 11) and 8.
why the fuck should they!? they're kids!?
steve jobs (the co-founder & CEO of apple) had a low tec family. why? because technology & kids (in large quantities) don't mix well and i agree! numerous studies have shown this to be true and to be perfectly honest...it's hard enough monitoring tv time and the xbox- let alone fighting over hand help MOBILE devices.
here's the thing, your a kid...GO PLAY OUTSIDE!
or draw, or play red rover, go jump on your tram(oline), go play with your friends...and yes CALL them on the PHONE, you know that thing that's connected to the wall by wires!
and guess what- they did, with no real complaints...they rocked their low-tec summer like a boss. i absolutely love their child like imaginations and wonder without it being technology fuelled. yes, they got into boat loads of trouble and it was all good trouble, kids exploring their world trouble! i'll take that any day over a quiet plugged in child zombie.
my kids will have MANY years to use technology but sadly they only have a few years left to just be children doing child like things!
