I was born in the late 80s and I practically grew up in the 90s. My childhood days were spent mostly outside the house, and my mom had to drag my dusty butt back into the house for supper. I had a pretty active life back then. I rode bikes in the morning and played games in the afternoon. Sometimes, we played baseball in one of our neighbours empty lots because we wanted to. I could still remember the countless Band-Aids and bruises that I got from biking accidents, tree-house mayhems and even tripping on the pavement. Those were the glory days.
When I look at kids now with their gadgets, scooters and mini kids bikes, I realized that they are missing out on a lot of fun stuff to do. They are glued in front of their televisions and gaming consoles, that they become too inactive and lazy. They do not even know what it is like to go camping outdoors with nothing but a tent and campfire. They do not know what it is like to get bruises and scrapes on their knees from falling down a bicycle. They do not even know what it is like to climb a tree and fall down from it. I guess kids today are in a hurry to grow up.
