It is sad that kids these days no longer play outside and have lots of fun under the sun like we used to do when we were kids. This is because technology now plays a major role in their lives and outside play is often regarded as something to avoid because they could lead to injuries and make kids noisy.
Parents nowadays forget just how much fun we all had when we could play outside with our friends. Of course, oftentimes this is due to the unsafe environment we now live in – as kids could be hit by passing cars while playing in the streets or even kidnapped by some syndicate! Also, physical play does have a high chance of causing injuries to kids.
As parents, we want to ensure that our kids are safe so we let them use gadgets so they will be safer – plus they can learn a lot from their gadgets, anyway, so it’s sort of a win-win situation for the parents.
But kids of past generations had it great – perhaps because we also had more fields to play in, less cars to worry about, and more time to interact with our peers. Let’s not blame anyone for anything – but let’s just take a look at some of the most exciting and fun games the kids of past generations played.
