When I was growing up I played with Barbies and legos. I did not have my first computer until fifth grade and my first cell-phone until middle school, and I was one of the luckier kids in my class.
Now, toddlers are playing with devices that I do not even have. I think that the generation below our age group is going to be so sucked into computers and technology that they will not know anything else. I thought I was obsessed with Facebook, Twitter and blogging. However, I do not even want to imagine how this two-year-old is going to grow up. I want my child to be able to hold a book and read it, not stare at a computer screen to read.
