    “You really need to get out there,” mum said, “ampersand exercise something other than your thumbs.”

    “Who’s Ampersand?” Joey asked. “Does he have any cool video games?”

    I guess you never noticed all of the adults texting, It has become a social skill.

    The only people good at texting are those who are all thumbs.

    Although I have found texting to be convenient for leaving a message (like a note left on a desk or refrigerator), it’s a huge waste of time to carry on a conversation by texting. Just call whomever and get it over with.

    I thought most parents were too paranoid to actually let their children go out side, at least with out massive supervision and safety measures.

    I use the Swype keyboard, largely because I don’t want to burn out my thumbs, which I need for regular keyboarding and playing the piano, as well as drawing and that other thing.

    Oh, yeah, writing.

    My daughter spends a lot of time gazing at screens, but she also plays two sports and gets good grades. As a congenital reader, I’d like it if she was better disposed toward book reading, but I’ve made my peace with the knowledge that she’s not the same as her mother or me.

    Unfortunately in our current social paradigm of “fear everything, there’s a terrorist around every corner, or just a rapist of kidnapper” this parent would be the exception rather than the rule.

    National parks, and other outdoor opportunities are finding it hard to draw “youth” interested in the natural world. Well, unless you put them on an ATV, in a four wheel drive, or other mechanized and/or “recreation opportunity” that destroys and separates them from that very “outdoor” environment.

    A considerable contributor to the “denier mentality” on cllimate change, and human impacts IS the industry (whether providing fuel or “fun”) profiting from that destruction and fear, and ignorance about the outddors and the natural world, doing everything they can to merchandise fear. Ignorance isn’t their enemy, it’s their method.

    And then Child Protective Services agents descended upon little Timmy, declared his parent to be unfit due to letting him play outside, and Timmy never saw inside of his house again. The End.

    That is how this story ends in modern times.

    Most kids have to make do with an urban wasteland for fun.
