Now let’s come back to the present day.
You’re likely listening to a TV buzzing in the background while a little one is watching oddly bright fruit bounce around to rave music and another child is watching a kid unwrap the latest and greatest toy on their tablet.
And if you’re being honest, even if they showed an interest in going outside—you don’t want to be out there standing around kicking at the rocks.
It’s just how things are now…but does it have to be this way?
I want to make it clear: this isn’t some anti-technology, “tablets and video games are evil” guilt trip.
But this is a call to action for parents who want their kids to be able to look back in a few years and have the same magical memories of playing with Mother Nature that we do.
