"Let’s face it, unless your kids are Amish (in that case you probably aren’t reading this), they are going to have a phone, Xbox controller, or tablet in their hands at some point…
And don’t get me wrong, technology is certainly not some evil thing by any means… it’s only when technology is abused and becomes an addiction when there a real problem.
Sadly, too many kids are way too addicted to “being connected” at all times today. And because this young generation is the first one in history to grow up around smartphones and Wifi 24/7, there are no studies to gauge just how big of an impact this is going to have on today’s kids when they get older.
But regardless of how cell phone and Xbox addictions impact them in the future, it is certainly taking a toll in the present day with more obese kids in America than ever before.
So why not get them outside with a fishing rod in hand?
The feel of a fish hitting your line is something that no technology can beat, and it will do them good to “disconnect” from technology and “connect” with a fish instead."
