A Brief Conversation with My Daughter

untitled“Sheesh! You’re online all day doing that ‘social networking’ thing! Why don’t you go outside and get some fresh air? Don’t you have any real friends?”

“These are my real friends! Stop bugging me! You just don’t understand my generation!”

“OK, whatever, Dad. I only said something because I care about you.”

    It really is a different world now with technology!
    Friends of mine have talked and realized something that we think all this social networking has attributed to. Teenagers not really wanting to get their license as soon as they turn 16!! Have you noticed that trend yet? Remember when you turned 16, couldn’t wait to drive. Have freedom. Meet up with our friends. Go places with our friends! So as my friends and I puzzled over why the lack of motivation to get a license, it dawned on us. Their friends are right at their fingertips! They don’t need to go meet at the skating rink to talk to a friend. They can talk to several friends at one time from the comfort of their room.
    We haven’t actually done a scientific study of that yet, but that’s our theory! 🙂

    This is really true…I’ve seen my son’s friends over and actually saw them texting each other…in the same room!
    He has gotten better with encouragement to go out and do things…funny my mom had trouble keeping me at home when I was 16 and I was pushing him out to do things.

    The problem is this generation does not understand its self, too young yet to know thy self too willing to discount wisdom knowing nothing else.

    Yes, things are sure different now. I’m still on the fence as to whether that is a good or bad thing.
