Bitten Fruit

I find our present really dreadful. This time that's children who make me shudder. Not even the innocent small creatures, but those monsters who think they are right when zombifying them to get even more money. Here is what I'm driving at.

You know, when I was a child, I wanted Father Christmas to bring me roller blades. And a bicycle. A little bit earlier — a doll with a thousand of dresses. The present children, on the contrary, wish literally nothing connected with sport or collective games. The past Pepsi generation seems to have been transformed into iGeneration, which now applies even to the youngest…

Here I stop clamoring and give you the graph for further consideration. Maybe it's time we did something to it?

Well written! The problem is that our children are really very crazy about Playstations and iPhones. I regret to see too many schoolchildren watching stupid videos or playing shooting games outdoors nowadays. Sometimes it resembles a massive viral infection.
Fortunately, I can also meet many ones roller skating or riding bikes. That is why, I guess, a hope for a decent development of our young people is still not lost.

You know, the bad thing about the current young generation (oh, Keath, when did you become an old farter?) is that with all those multimedia iPod/Pad/P-whatever-d devices around them, they have lost interest for everything lying beyond the scope of these hi-tech toys. That's true not for sporting activities only: take a look at how much our children are reading voluntarily. I bet, the figure will be close to nought.
My cousin's got a daughter, whose maternal grandmother seems to be ready to sell her soul to Satan if he promised her the latest gizmo (you see, the Grannies aren't always appallingly unsavvy in the tech). No wonder this respectable lady taught my cousin's little girl to watch her favorite cartoons and play all kind of games on a desktop. The problem is that the poor child now hates the books, she doesn't know what to do with the wretched thing: the computer doesn't require much of the imagination, planting by visual and auditory means the bulk of its imagery directly into the kid's brain. Whereas reading books you've got to make some effort to picture the characters and situations they are in… And as of today the girl is not nearly as good at it as me or her own father were back in our younger age.
