It is wrong how easy our lives are getting. No one wants to explore the world. Everyone is either going somewhere or too busy to notice the amazing world right in front of them.
The laziness is also bad for the kids. There is no playing outside anymore; it’s all video games and cell phones and junk food.
No wonder the younger generations are getting sick easily and being overweight at such a young age. It is understandable that certain programs are good for making jobs easier, but it also falls on the parents to make their kids active and get them moving.
I force my children to get out and active, because it is what is better for the kids. Taking risks is another part to parenting. If these parents now want to hover over their kids and keep them isolated from the world, then all that is going to happen is young adults getting anxiety because they don’t know how to deal with things.
Never miss a local story.
It is in the best interest of the United States that we stop making everything easy.
