Tech vs Children

One in three children think their parents waste too much time using gadgets.

This is the result of the latest survey of 7 to 11-year-olds, it also found half believe their mums or dads spend more time watching TV than they do talking to them.

Cue people getting on soap boxes about how we let technology rule our lives, but there could be another truth to this. If one in three children think their parents use gadgets too much that means one out of three children is less fun than an iPad.

In the olden days people would spend time with their children reading to them, playing with them, but back in those days we had 4 TV channels and games consoles you could play Pong on. It was easy for children to be more fun than that. Now we have streaming TV services and almost life-like gaming. Kids, you need to raise your game.

Modern day entertainment is hard to compete with. If you're binge watching a TV show and can't wait to see what happens in the next episode you can go right ahead and watch it. If you have a two-year-old child you have to wait a whole year to find out what it's like as a three-year-old. Boring!

Although, if half of children think their parents watch too much TV that means half don't. What's wrong with these people? Haven't they heard of Game of Thrones?

Some people, eh?
