Modern Kids


Today’s modern children
Live in the age of revolution
So interesting is their generation
That their life begins with tension!

Gone are the days of girls and boys
When they played with dolls and toys
Computer is their whole and sole
Which has become their ultimate goal!

Telephone has become their playkit
Making all their needs meet
Video games, Mobiles keep them busy
Without making things messy!

So unaware are today’s kids
From the old play of building blocks &
From the good old granny stories
That not only helps in mind building
But also makes their life worth living!

Nowadays children hardly resort to outdoor games but spend most of their time with mobile games, tablets, and all those electronic devices that are a threat to their eyes and health as well!

    How true Kavya! The children of today have outgrown their age and have lost track of a world of innocent fun and merriment! They are exposed to the adult world much earlier than due because of the easy access to trendy electronic and communication gadgets!

    I love this Kavya and this I have saved. I am so pleased that I am an old fashioned kid to have experienced dirt, fresh air and the smell of nature. Thank you (Report) Reply

    Kids today are indeed losing out on the pleasures of childhood as we oldies knew it. Well penned. (Report) Reply

Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
