I'm told that children are not socialising with each other anymore. I don't have children so I wouldn't know if this is true or not.
Is it true?
Apparently more and more socialising is done online playing games.
When I was growing up, of course we had television and I still fondly remember The Incredible Hulk, Knight Rider, The Six Million Dollar Man and Buck Rogers but we also had outside where we played cricket, rugby, soccer, basketball, tennis, darts, table tennis, golf, snooker and badminton. (Badminton was always interesting outside)
In fact when I write the above it reminds me of the below meme that I saw recently:

This all begs the question, what are we going to look like in 100 years time?
Are we all going to be homebodies who rarely go out? Sounds like an introvert culture to me.
My mother used to say to my brother and I that we watching too much television that we would get square eyes. Is that going to be true or are we going to have rectangle eyes?
Are people's head going to be in a permanent down-looking position because we have wandered around staring at our phones instead of looking ahead?
What I do know is that we need to get out more and socialise face to face. That isn't just extroverted people but introverted people as well.
It is very easy to stand behind our phones and just socialise there but we have to follow this woman's lead and live in the moment instead of behind our computer and phone screens.
