How our childhood have changed over the years

One of the luckiest things that can happen to you in life is, I think, to have a happy childhood”

~Agatha Christie

We all know a two year old kid who knows cellphone and can operate it. Well, technology has overcome the happy, innocent times of childhood.
When we were kids, we used to love playing outside with mud and anything that makes us happy. I remember us making a camera with mud with a round shaped glass fixed on the front side of the camera to make it look like it. How happy we were clicking invisible pictures.

I also remember us playing outside the house in our small compound during the evening, running and chasing each other. It was so much fun just by running. Now it is impossible because we all are busy with phones. Of course we spend time together but its not like the old times.

I spent my whole childhood wishing I were older and now I’m spending my adulthood wishing I were younger”

I think I can say my childhood times was the best since we didn’t grew up with technologies. Nowadays kids have more ideas about technologies than us.

Childhood days is all about innocence and fun. These days kids don’t have that childhood that they should have. Kids today are more conscious about what they do, what they wear, who they make friends with, how cool they look, who they go out with, whether they have the latest gadgets, to have the coolest birthday parties, etc. It sometimes pains me to see kids with cellphones instead of running around and playing.

It’s not all their fault for not having the childhood that we had. I think it’s mostly the parents or adults fault because we’re often busy with other works to make time for them. Parents just give away gadgets to their kids to make them stop crying or nagging. I think we should stop doing this and find time to spend with our kids besides our busy schedules. We should try to be there for them giving enough attention, making sure that they learn both through technology and also outside technology.

Obviously the times have changed over the years, we should go move forward learning more. But I think we all should have the same kind of childhood with innocence and purity.

“It’s never too late to have a happy childhood”
