I'm an engineer and I love building things but based on what I've seen about Gen Z, I think I'm going to raise my kids in a less modern style. No TV, no internet, at least until a certain age.

I feel the same way. We enjoy camping with the kids. They would rather be outside riding bikes and things. I myself decompress by building model cars and planes.

Definitely like the camper idea, wouldn't wanna make it too rough on the kids and have them dislike the whole experience. Thanks for sharing! :)

I respect the sentiment behind this but no internet whatsoever? I feel like there are ways to use it as an educational tool and provide children with a healthy relationship with it

Oh I'm sure we can do that too, but maybe once they're like 5 or 6. I just see so many toddlers glued to their iPads and I find it a bit disheartening

Agreed, I think kids have too easy access to the internet and technology. I wouldn't be surprised if we get some studies in the future about how screen time affects their development

I've actually already seen some studies that children who spend too much time with screens have a harder time developing social skills like interpreting facial expressions. Certainly a bit concerning

Hi, I am a single-parent with a 9 year old daughter. Is anyone else dealing with same gender sleepovers with sexual exploration occurring? Exploring as in my daughter says outright “I am going to kiss you,” to her bestie before bed. Then after 15 minutes of giggling in bed I go to tell them to be quiet and see my daughter’s bestie is showing her buttcheeks to my daughter. To top it off they start trying to tell me they are laughing because they are reading “belly laugh books for kids”. Help.
