Nem Wan: We live in the safest, most peaceful time in history.
Lunaville: I understand giving into the peer pressure to keep your kids on lock down at all times. I periodically make my kids go outside. I have neighbors come over and report that my children were riding their bikes in the road. Yes, well circling the front lawn gets awfully boring. On another occasion, a neighbor dropped by because he thought I should know my kids were playing in the narrow strip of woods behind our house. He looked perfectly horrified when I said "Yeah, I gave them a choice between going out to play or scrubbing the toilet."I haven't done that in a while and it's time for me to get back on my toes. Yesterday, my kids spent about 10 hours on electronic devices. One spent the entire day playing a single video game. We all love our computerized activities, but geesh, that's not healthy.
