Then why are you on this thread? You are so lame.
Its rather amazing...
I think Imagination doesn't grow nearly as much when its not 'needed'. By feeding images, scenarios and characters directly into a kid's head, he lives childhood dreams feed through the tube - rather than conceived with his own mind; rather than child's play being an "endeavor", its fed zombie like.
But this is SO appealing to today's parents who'll take any opportunity to not have to spend time with them, or monitor their independent play. "Sit down, shut up and drool quietly while I <whatever>". Sad
This is to say nothing of commercials, inculcating morality, installation of hero figures and the litany of children's programming that aims at marketing toys and gadgets; all which have an end result of reducing the need for imagination and creativity. Growing the perfect stupid consumer.
Ugh... I gotta stop now
Quote:A good chunk of modern socialization for kids now happens via technology. If they are being deprived of technology and regular access to technology then they are stunted. This is what the other parents are trying to tell you, and they are correct.Wow imagine that good socialization skills from socializing
Was Orwell or Huxley right? Huxley=soma=peyote.
That was really a bad bad bad thing you did, Fido. And Setanta's response was moderate to say the least, considering the egregious wrong you have involved yourself in.
I doubt whether there will ever be any A2kers who will ever forgive you. Your life, as you know it, is over. May I suggest harakiri? I will be willing to risk being tainted by your presence in order to act as your second.
No one seems to recognize sarcasm; "egregious wrong", "harakiri"
I was poking fun at Setanta, Fido, not at you.
I did have to wonder why a suicide would need a second.

The second is a friend who chops off the head if the first can't/won't/is unable to complete harakiri.
