Kids these Days

Kids these Days….

I know I’m too young to say this and I think that I'm myself still a kiddo but every time I see these kids around me it just leaves me wondering how much the kids these days have changed…

A couple of days back I went to visit a cousin of mine… Her son is just 4 years old… While I was chit chatting with him, the tiny toddler picks up my cell phone from the table and begins to play with it… My sis warned me to take it right away but he was all set to dissect it… I thought let it be, he won’t be able to even unlock the phone so no issues but to my surprise in the next 5 minutes there he was playing the Shinchan tune in my phone and clicking pictures here and there (So now you guys know that I love Shinchan)… I was really surprised to see that and there was my sis giving me a Didn’t-I-Tell-You look… I mean even after using cell phone for so many years, you give me a new cell phone and I’ll be all confused to even unlock it forget about operating it and look at these kids, they are way beyond us…. (So now you also know how dumb I’m when it comes to gadgets)

I think we need to gear up….

  2. Kids these days are very fast learners. And they become gadget and internet savvy at a very young age.

  10. Kids this generation are faster,quicker and wiser than we could even expect them to !

    And it's true for all the generations...the next one would be a plus one from the current one...thanks to technology and the life style!

  11. My friends kid - 3 year old, knows to switch on the comp on his own , login and start his favorite games and play. Now at the age of 4 he could pick the CDs and install games and play, when he uninstalls them :O

  19. I know! They grow up exposed to technology, so they definitely pick up things much faster than us :)

    Although, I think as parents, we have to keep a check on what they are up to.
