New Generation's Way of Bonding

Look at how these kids bond even if they meet each other only after many years. They used to be very intimate playmates when they were toddlers yet now that they can already communicate well, they just go with the current trend around - under the spell and control of technology. Oh, I so dread the idea that my kids, if not being checked, don't love to meaningfully bond with their cousins and friends anymore, to run and play around and to talk to each other! Instead, they just hang out right in front of the computer. So now whenever we travel, we should be wise enough not to carry a laptop with us.

We're going out to appreciate nature, to cool down at the beach but sorry, despite their begging, we have to leave the busy laptop behind. They need to go out of their shell before they finally become hardened turtles. They need to appreciate nature and the sweetness of meaningful interactions with their fellow human beings, not machines.

My son has a laptop of his own, thanks to his uncle. And yes, he bonds with his laptop most of the time his parental control says it is available. But I am glad that his hours in front of the computer is at least, minimized. They are just two siblings, and they fight most of the time. I do not know if it is because they are of different genders, or is it because of something else. They almost always snarl at each other when I am around. Hayyyy.

It's good you have a control over your kids' computer use. Regarding the fighting of your siblings I think that's normal as my 2 kids-girl & boy, too - also fight over just anything, even at petty stuff, very often. I believe that they can outgrow it sooner or later as other moms have shared to me. They can be very sweet sometimes.
Thanks for stopping by, dear Sheng.

yeah, you're very right Ms. A!

We have no internet connection for almost a month and I'm loving it because I now have my kids' attention fully. . .

it's bonding time for us sans technology. . .

@Jinky, sorry for having your comment approved late. Wasn't here for quite some time. Now, I'll be more frequent here again.
Isn't it great to take some days off from our machines? I had to show example to my kids who have to bond with us not very long.
Thanks for stopping by, Jinkz.
