My children before were asking for dolls or other toys on special occasions likethis upcoming school closing. But nowadays, they are really influenced by high technology too, they opt for a touch screen, tablet or notebook for a gift.
Noon ang hinihiling lang na regalo ng mga anak ko ay manyika, clay o iba pang laruan sa tuwing may okasyong gusto nilang makatanggap ng regalo gaya nitong nalalapit na pagtatapos ng pasukan/klase. Talagang hindi na mapigilan ang epidemya ng teknolohiya – pati mga bata ay naiimpluwensiyahan na din. Bakit kamo? Itong mga anak ko, sampu at pitong taong gulang gusto na din Android cellphone, tablet at notebook pa kamo!
My firstborn Angel had her earliest try on computer when she was four. I can remember the trending game then is Farm Mania. She was just watching me and her father at first then we never really notice when she plays by herself without our guidance. By five, she also learned MS Word basics typing/encoding and drawing on Paint app.
Yung panganay kong si Angel ay nagsimulang humawak ng computer noong apat na taon pa lamang siya. Naalala ko uso pang game noon ang Farm Mania. Nanonood lang siya sa amin ng tatay niya sa simula hanggag sa hindi na lamang namin napansin na naglalaro na pala siyang mag-isa. Limang taon naman siya nang matutong gumamit ng MS WORD ang encoding at pagguhit sa Paint app.
I wonder what is the difference between the hobbies of today than that of the old days. Basically, studies prove that more and more children get obese at a younger age because they cut on exercise or body movement – instead of doing some other things that would make them sweat they tend to get satisfied sitting around while playing games on their Android gadgets.
