The thing about the world we live in is of course the one thing we can't live without, technology. Growing up when I did, we slowly started getting things like the walkman and nintendos. It was all about uno, skip-bo, monopoly and apples to apples on Sundays. We actually would interact with people. These days 3 year olds have their own iPad and 10 year olds have cell phones.
Its no wonder kids are developing social problems. HELLOOOOOOO maybe if kids would actually have a conversation with a human instead of a device we wouldn't be having this issue.
Board games were fun because there was laughing, and learning, and just all around having a good time. I feel bad for the kids today because they are missing out on those fun childhood memories I got to experience growing up, because parents now a days would rather hand their kids an iPad to occupy them then actually sit down as a family and play a game. Its really sad.
