    Children spend far too much time in front of screens. We need to encourage our kids to interconnect with the world at large rather than an electronic device that presents them with skewed and biased view. I saw it with my own kids when I realized that their knowledge of Greek and Roman gods was entirely from video games, they knew nothing of the original story or moral, but only the stories contrived by the game maker.

      That was one of the reasons I posted that article. I also think kids spend too much time interfacing with a screen. If it’s not a computer, it’s a smartphone or game.
      But you know I’m finding that I’m also spending more time with a computer. I decided to limit my time, which means less email and less postings. But I don’t want to spend my retirement in front of a screen. That’s why I got rid of my television the day i retired three years ago.
