We all have happy memories of when we were kids without a care in the world. Most of the time we busy ourselves with thoughts of swimming in the river or climbing up a tree or spending the afternoon with the neighbor's kid. Yes, these are the fond memories of a child that need not worry about kids' indoor games or outdoor games just as long as they are fun. #summer #parentingtips
Children nowadays though have a different idea of fun. Because they have been exposed to the different technological advancements in the field of entertainment, we would mostly see kids nowadays wired to the computer of the game console or handheld gaming devices that separate them from physical games and activities. For these kids the idea of fun is advanced game play experience, 3d accelerated and rendered graphics, surround sound and AI (artificial intelligence) interactivity. These are the components and the requirements of a fun activity or game to them. Though there is absolutely nothing bad about enjoying the fruits of technology sometimes there are other forms of activities that can be substituted for the technology enhanced version of fun.
