My son said to me only the other day. "Mum I bet your childhood was boring" I said "no way son, I had adventures, always out all day when I could, building camps, climbing trees, on my bike, skates and around friends houses. More than you ever do son" Rather my childhood than on a gadget.

This is a load of rubbish. Kids do want to play outside but it's ruined by selfish, horrible adults out screaming at them if they dare set foot outside their house. No laughing, fun, bikes etc. God forbid. Give yourself a shake, I don't know one kid who wants to spend all their time on a computer.

yeah we were always outside or in the back garden with our mates and playing on our swing, in the summer paddling pool, we were always out at the beach and canoe lake my nan lived near the beach, we went on picnics and treasure hunts, loads of outdoor things to do, wish my kids would but all electronic gadgets these days , technology has a lot to answer for
Carol Newman
Yep sad world now to much technology it's all computers no fun in trying to work things out and play outside like we used to have fun that's all disappeared now never see many kids playing outside anymore inside on phones x boxes watching Tele that's there growing up

Yes,I am.As a young boy I could identify wild birds,fish, and most wild native animals.i was never in the house.The time spent out and in conversational meetings with my mates was educating.When I look back,I wouldn't swap that for all the technology and gadgets of today.
