  • 1. Childhood is about everyday being an adventure. It is about the joy of freedom and never caring about what comes in your path. Being a kid is about being charismatic, troublesome, and cute.

2. However, peoples outlooks on a good time have drastically changed due to the advances in technology. The young adults seen here are in a handheld gaming lounge. Their idea of fun is to sit around inside and play with handhelds by themselves instead of socializing with each other or getting fresh air outside. 3. Reading began as something fun to do during free time or something needed to do research. Fairy tales and science fiction help us expand our imagination. Any book could make us step out of reality and into a world of fantasy. 4. The current generation uses the internet for everyday purposes. They surf the web and have online accounts on chat or game websites. Adolescents have losttheir passion of reading. 5. Back in the day, a tire could simply be used as something to swing on. Tires could also be used to push a little sibling around while chasing after them. They were used for innocent and simplistic playtime. 6. Today, tires are used to move the car that teens are given after receiving their licenses. Over time, the age for being eligible to drive has varied. Tires are used for a totally different purpose by kids in the present. 7.

  • During the 20 thcentury, kids use to blow bubbles as a leisure

  • well. Rap, hip-hop, and hard rock
  • are the widely popular music

  • they are too hooked on an episode of Dora or
  • Gossip Girl. They fail to get the right amount of
  • exercise everyday, causing our generation to be the

  • America, there is still
  • segregation among citizens.
