I get it. My children are growing up in the "touch screen" generation. And I want my children to be fluent in technology...someday. But just like classroom learning, technology is a world you can't easily step out of. Once you're in, you're in. I see no benefit to immersing them in technology early. I do, however, see great benefit to hours of outside play...with siblings...under a self-made tent. It requires ingenuity, creativity, problem solving, collaboration (or lessons on how to deal with frustration!), and perseverance (Especially this tent. It collapsed more than once). It fosters strong minds and strong bodies. I'm not anti-technology by any means, but I am definitely pro-imagination, pro-outdoors, pro-don't-make-them-grow-up-too-soon.
