We were shown this video last night at Andrew's school parents night. I thought it was very thought provoking. We are living in a world that is constantly changing and we have no real idea of where or how fast future change is coming. Technology has become so much part of our everyday life. When I think back to when I was a teenager and we got excited about getting the phone installed and getting colour TV, there was one TV in the house and Dad controlled what we watched! Now I have a mobile phone beside me as I type this on my laptop. We have two TVs in the house and many many DVDs to watch. Both kids have mobiles, Nintendo DS (as do I!!). We have a playstation and a Wii. There is so much choice and often the boys need to be encouraged off their electronic toys to do other things. Life seemed simpler then!
