    1. ๐Ÿ’› Mick ๐Ÿ’› – yeah… that’s what I think too. My daughter has no perspective on this – she only knows a life with cell phones, tablets, computers, and Internet…

      All best,

  1. My grandkids would go stir crazy on Shabbat if we didn’t come up with all kinds of inventive and fun word games played around the table. They love these games, yet the moment Shabbat ends, laptops have to come out, and they are lost to the world. If I can at least entice Shira to cook or bake something unusual and delicious for Sunday brunch, Ariel is immersed in computer games. I am not happy about it, but I have no control.

  2. Love this poem, David. It touches my heart and stirs my memories. โค

    In defense of computers, YouTube is wonderful when you need advice about how to do home repairs, gardening, and many other useful hands-on activities.

    I think there needs to be plenty of time in every kid's day for wading in the creek and catching tadpoles, building sandcastles and snow forts, chasing butterflies, collecting rocks, watching the clouds roll by, riding bikes…

    1. Definitely. But it’s not just the porn – it’s really the whole she-bang. YouTube, video games, cell phones, etc., etc.!
