Our Kids Today

Here are my thoughts about the society of our young children, our future generation…….

This Poem “Our Kids Today” is dedicated to all who are concerned about our Children

———————————

OUR KIDS TODAY?

What has become of our kids today?

Can you remember the times it was safe to roam?

Can you remember the times we had fun,

for hours on end and no one knew where we were?

What has become of our kids today?

They are happy to play computer games,

have a television in their room, with their own DVD, Game Station,

a Wii, D.S  and internet too.

But ask them to put it all down,

Switch it all off,

Open up the window for fresh air,

Turn off the Air Conditioner,

Switch off the mobile phone.

Turn it all off, Tune it all out and go for a walk.

It’s like we are asking them to cut off their own leg arm or both.

WHat has become of our kids today?

If the kids do not have all of the above they ask why?

Kids don’t get how to have fun anymore.

Send them out in the great outdoors and they have not a clue……

It’s such a shame, Such a Shame.

To see our kids locked up in doors, with no sun or surf or fun

Is a crime.

Turn off the power Mum’s and Dads

Let our kids become kids once again,

Push them out the door and let them explore.

What Has Become Of Our Kids Today?

  1. Has anyone found a good workout machine for home use? I want to get in shape again after getting very flabby this past year. I want a treadmill that gives me a good workout, and one that will last a long time. Let me know if Bowflex or Soloflex are best for me at home.

  2. i agree with you….thank you for sharing 🙂

  3. I totally agree with you LIsa. I have 3 kids who think their throats are cut when I put a full ban on electronics. Once I get them out of the house (we live on 90 acres so there is plenty of space to roam) they have a great game together and can spend hours out there in the big wide world. The other day I told my 12 year old to turn the computor off and she promptly said but what do you want me to do – read a book -god forbid if she had to read a book. lol

    • Hello Jackie,

      So great to know I am not the only parent out there with the same issues 🙂 So wish we had 90 acres to roam on.

      Cheers
      Lisa
