Born in 1972.
After reading that article, I feel so nostalgic about my Childhood.
Those were the times we used to ACTUALLY PLAY!
I remember playing Cops n Robbers, Pirates, making Mounds of bed sheets ...hell..we used to play outside..
Now my seven year old son is more interested in the PS2/PS3/PSP/XBox than actual Physical play.
The first video game i ever played was PONG!! I had my atari console with catridge games.
Well, i have not done well too..in my child hood i could climb a tree fast like a monkey. Now a days, lifting a leg to climb a ladder is strenuous and
i fear sometimes my weight will break the ladder.
These days, the only physdical activity my son does is imitate WWE moves with his friends which eventually ends up in hurts, so i out an end to it.
He stays for hours gaming, that also i put an end to it.
I try to be like my father, he was sensible and beat the # out of me when i did catastrophical damages like break the windshield of our car while
Bring back spanking our kids, teach them a lesson, put them out into the playgrounds...
