Why?

I
live
in
a
place
where
there
are
9.5
million
people

 

there
are
shops
and
goods
for
every
taste
and
every
kind
of
food
imaginable

 

there
are
plays
movies
shows
comedy
clubs
trails
to
walk
and
ride
boats
tours
music
gardens
art
museums
dance
beaches
and
more

 

so
why
is
that
no
one
can
ever
think
anything
to
do

    I think the most used comment for kids nowadays is “I’m bored”. When I was a kid no one cared if I was bored, it was my job to find something to do! 🙂

    • Most definitely. Adults expected us to take care of things by ourselves and I think we are better for it.

        Definitely. Kids are so entitled now. My son never said he was bored. Thing is kids can’t rent go out and play like we used to for fear of something dreadful happening.

  2. That is so true. Kids are driven to school and picked up. The world is a dangerous place now and that is so incredibly sad. You can’t let them out of your sight and that’s not good for them. I know they don’t know what life used to be like but we had freedom and we learned so much, roaming around, playing, being out of touch (no phones) and just going home for dinner. Can’t miss what you never had but I wouldn’t trade my childhood for what kids have today, for anything.
