Children losing the ability to hold a conversation because of technology
Children are losing the ability to hold a conversation because of their use of technology, the best-selling author of the Wimpy Kid series has said.
"I don't know if anybody really has the right answer but what's undeniable is the way that kids communicate with each other has changed fundamentally and probably permanently," he told the Press Association.
"What we really want for our kids is to be fully socialised and to hold a conversation with one another and I think that's what's being lost.
"If I get in the car with my kids now everybody's on their phone ... and it feels weird to drive around with everybody on their phone....
But I'm like, you know, trying to make sense out of all this, and then my friend, he goes "'Sup with that?" and I'm like, "I know, right?" Young people haven't been able to carry on an intelligent conversation since before the days of Maynard G. Krebs, so how is this like, you know, news?
Why do parents permit young children to have any electronic device? My grandson is a perfect example, the baby sitter ( his momâ€™s phone) canâ€™t teach discipline, how read above his grade level or how to answer any simple question when asked by an adult. And if I state that fact, the sissy boy generation canâ€™t handle the truth. Is there any wonder the when the Lord returns he returns as our Judge?
The future generation's ability to interact with each other is being diminished and abated by a variety of ways today. Technology and its effect is one area of concern. But also politically correct attitudes to respect, morals, dignity, discipline, law and order and the means by which society and community interacts are in decline also. This fallen world is falling even more down the scale of human worth and standards.
You know, our child spends a good amount of time on technology but interacts and communicates very well with people of all ages. Sure, there's something wrong with the dad but also a government system who will accuse that dad of abuse if he tells his kids to put their phones down and the school that warps kids to only communicate politically correct ideas. And the nature of society today. What's funny to me is that the first question we get as homeschoolers is how our son is being socialized...and, of course, he's more interactive & communicative than his socialized peers from the socialist system! Oh, and our child is autistic & still out performs.
